I'm going to have to print out some of the lists on here, and put them up in my shop. That way, when the next person asks "Don't you have enough planes already???", I can simply point at one and say "Not Yet!!!"

That said, here's what's currently in my shop...

Flying:
GP Patriot w/ piped OS 46FX
Lanier Shrike w/ OS 15FP
GP Ultra Sport 60 w/ OS 91FX
P-51 Voodoo w/ OS 91 4-stroke
Dynaflite P-51 w/ piped Enya 61

Waiting for Flight Packs/Engines:
Assessor pattern plane w/ piped OS 61 PF
Legend 4 pattern plane
EZ Focke Wulf w/ OS 46FX

In Repair/Modification/Construction:
Kamdax Mig-15 ducted fan
Direct Connection F-20, being modified for Webra Speed 61
MAN Lyka Jet w/ ST 40X
1/12th Scale F6F Hellcat, just final markings need to be completed
ME109, think it was built from Brian Taylor plans, but not by me, still being repaired
Long-EZ, built, but not by me, needs to be refurbished

Going up for Sale:
Balsacraft Rapier Kit
Synro-Gyro autogyro w/ Thunder Tiger 40
HOB 1/2A Stealth w/ Cox Black Widow
MAN A-10, modified, w/ MVVS 29 mounted in the nose

Feel like I'm forgetting something..... lol

That's all for now!

Default RE: How many planes do you own? And what are they?

got into R/C flying about two years ago and in that time i've gone through

1 x Chris Foss Middle Phase glider - fus in the loft intact but no radio, wings in bits
1 x Ripmax Nova trainer - all bar wing gone
3 x Rusty Cameron (local club member) built, Midnight .40's - one still flying regularly
1 x plan built Piper Comanche (modified to to the full size Cherokee my old man flew) - radio and engine out for other projects
2 x Protech Christen Eagles (the wife thought they were one and the same) - one burnt after mishap 2nd one sold
1 x Flair Giles - given away in two bits after deadsticking in the worst place ever and breaking in two
1 x 1/4 scale Flair Stearman given to me after a light dusting with the ground - sold to make way for.....
1 x Dave Patrick 26% Edge 540T - only had it a couple of months but after flying this i don't need any more models.

The D.P. Edge and the old faithful Midnight are the only two still flying regularly.

P.s. do we count micro helis???

Ele-Bee Chinese electric wing (cobalt 05)
Cheap Shot! combat wing
Dave's Aircraft Works Schweizer(sp?) 126
Unknown Manufacturer 'glass glider
Another Unknown Manufacturer 'glass glider
Still Another Unknown Manufacturer floatplane trainer w/60 gas motor

Sold six last year as hanger was full, they were all 46FX size scale or aerobatic.

I have flying,

Hobbico Avistar 46 - Trainer that does Aerobatics
Phoneix See Bee 46FX - Aerobatics
Unknown CAP 232 46FX - Scale Aerobatics
Worlds Super Senior 1/4 Scale - 61FX - Scale Aerobatics

Working on

Seagull Super Decathelon 46FX size - Scale Aerobatic This is the new version that uses only one servo for the elevators.

I like smaller planes but may give in to a gasser next year. Happy Landings folks & Happy Fathers Day to you Dads out there.
