ASM F7F Tigercat. Power is provided by OS 1.20AX 2-strokes. It stands on modified ESM F7F retracts. Wingspan is 82 inches and weight is 18.7 pounds. It is not underpowered, performance is great.

MetallicaJunkie, it is an HDR effect. Some info: http://www.stuckincustoms.com/hdr-photography/

I will have some more HDR photos coming up. Here is a Mr Mulligan owned by another friend. Brief video: Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkepRrDoymw

Sorry, a single photo would not work well. If you will glance over the information mentioned in post #229, you will find for HDR to work, a bracketed series of 3 or more photos must be taken. Yes, some softwares try, and sometimes take a decent shot at, doing an HDR simulation with only one photo. But a single photo would yield poor results.

My favorite after a year in the hobby and 7 planes, the Big Stick! I was surprised not to find anyone mentioning a stick.

Another surprise: the Mustang, I saw only a few, considering it’s the most popular plane in my club.

I probably would have had a Big Stick by now if I did now already have an Ultrastick. The Big Stick looks like a fun airplane.

MetallicaJunkie, yes.

Here is my ESM B-25 ARF bashed into Jimmy Doolittle's plane. With bombs, brakes and lights and DLE 20's. It has 22 servos and a Smartfly Power Expander.

Maybe it is because all Sticks are ugly and have been that way from the beginning when they were known as "Das Ugly Stik".. *laughing* Remember, the title of this thread is "Post your Most loved ARF Beauty".

Rocketman,

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Beauty is the way my plane flies, not so much how she looks on the ground.
So, I will stick to my ugly Stick. :-)
Besides, it was sweet to brag that I owm a Big Stick.

That one definitely qualifies as a beauty.

Markhamregular,
I hear you. That's a good way to feel about your models. Believe me, I've had planes that I loved to fly that some people didn't feel were appealing to the eye.
