Kostas1,

Nice looking planes. I had a UcanDo 3D 46 a couple years ago with an OS 50SX on the business end. Here are a few of my planes. The yellow one is the Seagull Laser 200 with an OS 120AX 2 stroke swinging an APC 17X6 prop. The one in the middle is my new QQ Somenzini YAK 54 73" with a Brillelli 40cc GT up front swinging a XOAR 20X8 wood prop and the green and white one is my GSP Giles 202 with a Brillelli 26cc with a 17x6 prop.

I would have to say that my 'lovliest' ARF is the Rascal Forty. It just has a wonderful classic look and I love the elliptical wing.

The GP Shoestring powered by a TH .75 has to be my all time favorite. I ran 10 gallons through it this summer, and never touched anything. The "lightened" Pizzaz powered by a Maggie .46 with a TH .46 muffler is the second choice. The GP Ryan STM is also on my list, but I have no current pictures.

These three are my favourites and my biggest airplanes. The P-40 and Spitfire are still works in progress but are both operative and in flying condition.

CMP P-40 140 size
ESM (KMP) Spitfire XIV
The World Models Velox Rev II

All are electric.

I have a hanger full of scratch built airplanes but my favorite ARF next to my Hanger 9 77" P-51 is my Hanger 9 C-182 with a OS 160 twin. Love those full flap landings and great sound of the twin. Been in the hobby for forty five years and in my wildest dreams think I would ever buy ARF's like we have now.

I was bored in the shop one day. Spent about two hours making and covering the little jug. I had it on the ANT for about three weeks. One day at 70 mph it started to oscillate. It banged off the window three times before I had to pull over. The wings had pulled loose by then. I still have it. I was thinking about making one about half as big to see how it would do.
