Lol, not me....my poor trainer didn't last more than 3 short learning flights.....a total of approx 90 seconds.
1st flight, approx 10 seconds, 2nd flight, about 60 seconds, 3rd flight, about 15 seconds.......then a basket ball met it's wing, and that was it.
After 30 years, I built a 2nd one as a tribute, and to see if I could fly it more than the first one. I have two flights on it now, about 15 minutes total.....lol

Nice Collection!
The way that kits have disappeared (and brick and mortar, ma and pa stores), I think your inventory now exceeds what a person would find in a hobby shop!
That Sig Bonanza, one of my Unicorn kits from 30 years ago.....one of the few that I've always wanted, but couldn't get a hold of. I'd love to have a shrink wrapped example!

I've got 30 kits and more than that in built planes! Last summer I gave about 30 to the club! I kid you not, at this point I'm not bragging I'm drouning! Iguess thats what happens when you model for 51 years!

Boy can I relate to this thread. 30 yrs of collecting and flying Pylon Racers are my sickness! Check out my gallery. I have another 10 or so not pictured. Wife loves the fact that two rooms and every closet has airplanes in them!

Well I am addicted big time!
My first interest was when I was young I purchased from Kmart a Cox PT19 control line plane.
I started this hobby fultime since 2004, I have always wanted to get into this hobby but my parents always stopped me from getting into it. So one day when I got older my nephew asked me to go with him to a local hobby store and a guy in there said he had a deal for me, he gave me his start up box, a gallon of fuel and his Sig Kadet LT40 trainer all for 245.00, I took it to a high school field and could not get it in the air, it kept going in the fence so then I went back to the hobby store and they told me to join a local club, I joined a local club and got it working and figured it out that the elevator was reversed Stupid me! The club guys where in to Helicopters so I purchased an electric Eco8 Heli then a Quick all metal 50 Heli then a Raptor 30, Rapter 90 and then Raptor 50 all the guys where flying Rapters. Then winter came and I put together a Topflight P51 Mustang kit, my wife said if she got that box of twigs she would have sent it right back lol. It was a great experience to build but the wing hurt my eyes from the CA fumes, Arf's are a lot easier.
Then I got into Arf's, Yellow Funtana 90, Topflight Corsair, Rocket II, Hanger9 Corsair, Hanger9 P51 Mustang then I got into 1/12 scale Combat with streamers
I have over 25 of them with OS 25's nitro engines we built them with Coroplast Polyurethane and CA.
They have scale specs with a little bit of allowed tolerances. Rules. but was really fun while it lasted.
Then in the winter time with snow I got aluminum ski's but they kept sticking so I went to a ski club and asked for some old kids ski's without the bindings and shortened them for my planes they worked great especially on my CAP 232 with Zenoha 60 Gas engine great fun. Then I got into FPV with the Sig Kadet LT40 but when I took the goggles off I could not find my plane until I heard it that scared me so I did not like doing that anymore. Then I got into speed with a Bullet, Diamond duster and Raven with tuned pipes what an adrenalin rush and now I am deep into Turbine jets I have to many to mention, but the next 2 I need to maiden is an Aviation Design Diamond, and a Classic BVM Balsa Bandit.
I thought about getting in to FPV again but with long range FPV so I got a dragon link and EZ-link stuff, All kinds of different antennas from Alex aka (IBCrazy)
and started trying it again with Traxxas 4x4 trucks its a blast booting around at the park sitting in my house. I have also spent a lot at Hobbyking for batteries and build your own Quads and Hex copters with DJI Controllers then I decided to get a DJI Phantom 2 but it seems drones are becoming a problem these days. I some time bring my Phantom to Jet events but the guys are saying the 5.8 Gig is interfering so it just sits in the box a lot of the time anymore. But it seems to be a hobby I will be going to my grave with.
My wife always says when i'm gone she is going to have a big bonfire in the back yard with all my planes and jets GRIN! What can I say life is short so you might as well enjoy what you like to do!
Thx for taking the time to read this and have fun keepin on flying!
Regards Jeff D
