Default Storage Case for Brushless Motors

Has anyone found anything good for the storage of 4-6 brushless motors?

Tired to them rattling around in my pit bag.

Creative solutions gratefully accepted...

Thanks.

Is there any chance of cutting the foam in a brushed motor case to house them?

It's not the smallest, but I use a "GM Racing" brushed motor case. It comes with a built in handle, but I cut that off so it fits in my bag. With the handle removed, it fits perfectly in a standard size "pit box" and you can put one plano tackle on top, and still close the box. Plus it holds up to 8 motors and parts.

Mine fit in my brushed motor case similar to the one above.

I'm surprised that Much More hasn't offered us a blue, black, and purple one.

I've been very happy with the Corally brushless motor case to carry my BL motors/armatures and LiPo batteries.

Pretty good solution Yang. Is that lid high enough for the solder tabs on the end of each motor?

Is this Yang from the IIC?

These boxes have been working great for me. They come two ways:

PA CC0104 holds 4 motors and 4 armatures/rotors
PA CC0114 holds 6 motors and has a couple little slots that I use for sensor cables

Best part is a street price of $6.34 each

I'm more of an American Express driver and they're fairly open to what equipment I can use.
