RE: How Many Airplanes Do You Have In Your Hangar?
Sounds fun to me. I'll go from most recent back. Only listing the ones I still have in one piece.
H-9 Funtana S/ Saito.72/ JR 642
Kyosho GeeBee/.72/Futaba Sky-6
H-9 Pizzaz/.72/JR Max-6
Goldberg ULT./ST.90/Futaba Sky-6
Goldberg Tiger 2 ARF/ Enya .50/ SKY-4
Sig Suhkio/ST 3250/ JR max-6
PT.40/ST.45/ Sky -6

I could list the ones I have turned back into kits, but I would wear out the keyboard.
15 years of flying and 10 totaled planes. Thankfully it's been 3 years since my last BOOM!
Later David

RE: How Many Airplanes Do You Have In Your Hangar?
Wow do I feel out classed here, I only have 2 right now. I have been flying R/C planes for 15 years now, and have crashed a bunch of them. Actually I have crashed all of them given enough time. My wife would shoot me if i tried to buy engines and radios for a dozen or more planes.

Currently I have:
Dave Patrick Ultimate 40/Saito 72 I love this plane.
Tower Fun 51/ST 40 - still covering it.

Re-kitted planes, well the ones I can remember:
Duraplane - junk.
Hobbico Ultimate Bipe w/ST 60 on a tuned pipe.
Hobbico Stick
Hobbico Viper
Thunder Tiger Champion 45L - maiden flight loss.
GP Ugly Stick
GP Super Sportster 40 & 60
Goldberg Super Chipmunk
King Cobra
Goldberg Mirage 550
Graupner - some high wing plane
Golberg Sophisticated Lady
Goldberg Gentle Lady
Sig Riser 100 - survived 10 years
Kyosho Stratus 1600 - lost due to thermals too good and it wouldn't come down, even inverted. Needless to say I never saw it again and vowed to never fly another glider without spoilers.

Kyosho Concept 30 - sold

This is an old pic, I got rid of a couple here, and got a few new ones.. Not in pic are my 33% sukhoi, BVM F-86 sabre, whiplash, FF Taco. Last I counted I had 10+ models RTF with Rx's and batt's in them.

Wow!! Thanks for all the fast replies so far. Please keep them coming and the pictures too. It is interesting to share the hobby with fellow fliers/modelers.
Whtbronco-I hope you really don't feel outclassed by anyone. Even with my 33% Extra that I am finishing up seems small compared to all the 40%'s that are out at my flying club. Even guys with smaller planes (.40-.60 sized) some can still outfly many of the guys out at the field. I think the most important thing is to remember to enjoy this hobby, and be safe while doing so. After all, it must be fulfilling if you've been in it for 15 years.;)
Here is my picture from this year's IMAC contest. It is my 1/4 scale Sig Extra, FPE 2.4 gas, all Futaba.

I'm a new flyer (less than 2 years). My hangar is small:

Rekitted: Hobbico Hobbistar 60 (it's in the trash)

Flying, on buddy box:
Global Right Flyer 60H ARF, TT-61 Pro, Futaba 6XAS, 3004 servos

Ready to fly:
Sig Astro Hog, OS 70 Surpass, Futaba receiver and 3004 servos

Under Construction:
Great Planes PT-60 kit, ASP 61, Hitec receiver and servos

Planes I want:
Sig Four Star 60 with OS 91 Surpass II
Sportsman Waco 60 with OS 91 Surpass II
Ultra Stick 60 or Big Stick 60 with OS 91 Surpass II

I see a theme developing and it all comes back to wanting a really cool plane for the engine I have tucked away in the closet. I guess I need to finish learning to fly, and pick a plane.

RE: How Many Airplanes Do You Have In Your Hangar?
Well, it's almost impossible to to list them all. I've been in the hobby for 11 years and have built/assembled about 95 planes for me or others. I've slowed down these last couple years and have only built/assembled 5 this year(but i still have 3 more months!).
If I dont like the plane, I'll sell it in a heartbeat! my current stable is;

Yellow P-38 Lightening
Aeroworks 31% Edge
H-9 Funtana
CG Extreme 330

I just got the GP Christen Eagle last night and am on the list for an ExtremeFlight YAK-54. Gotta love this hobby!!!!!

Pending repair[*]GP U-Can-Do-3D ARF #2 w/ YS .91AC. Attempted a low rolling circle... with 3D rates turned on. Used too much rudder and snapped out. Dinged the wing and tailfeathers.

Honorable mention
Goldberg Mirage 550 w/ a weird Graupner Speed 600/planetary gearbox, 8 cells and a 12x10 prop (!)
This is the plane I **finally** soloed on. Its a hand-me-hand-me-hand-me-down - it was given to me by the bloke that taught me to fly. He learned to fly with it; it was given to him by the bloke that taught him to fly. He learned to fly with it; it was given to him by the bloke that taught him who built and learned to fly with it!! whew! Its pretty ratty but I just can't throw away something with that much history.
