I have over 80, I think starting in size from two of the Micro-X parlor flyers, small 9" span indoor rubber jobs up to a 9 FOOT span scratch built Lanzo R/C Stick. In between, I have a number of hand launch gliders, about 9 of them, several rubber powered FF, Rocket powered boost gliders, an Estes Sweet Vee RC boost Glider, numerous control line and RC planes.

I can actually respond to this post now and feel somewhat sane. I just sold off some of my airplanes that I wasn't flying since starting to get involved in the small electrics The turbine jets are gone, all but one 40% aerobatic airplane is gone, as are some of the smaller ones. Sold off the trailer to haul then all around in. Here is what I have left, some to be sold also.

80" 3W Xtra Fun with 24cc gas engine (have two)
Hydeout pattern plane with YS-140
1/3rd scale J3 Cub with G62
1/4 scale Clipped Cub with OS 160 twin
40% Carden Extra 330s with DA-150 (probably sell)
A fist full of small electrics, shock flyers, bi-plane, etc
Two Zoom electric helicopters
Aeroworks Profile Extra with Saito 180
And a few smaller .40 sized RC airplanes for my son
VIP electric pylon racer
Caleb electric hotliner sail plane

Since post 351, I've added a GWS Flying Pizza ERC, An Ikarus Edge 540 ERC, a Wattage Turbo Hawk, an FAI Supply Free Flight Ornithopter, Rebuilt an older P-30 Rubber powered Free Flight, almost finished a Jimmie Allen BA Cabin rubber powered Free Flight, and started to complete a 1/2A Birdie from Sure Flight, probably for my TT 07 or Norvel 061 that I got some years ago partly built from an estate sale. Also, I have reduced the count by one thanks to the wind getting under the wing of my 11 year old Kyosho Cessna Cardinal ERC.

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

Man I am impressed by some of the Hangars of planes you all have

This is what I'm currently flying:

The one that looks like a CropDuster actually started out as a Sig Four Star 120 w/Saito GK150 inverted spinning a Graupner 15x8. It is actually scaled after an AirTractor 802F SEAT, which stands for Single Engine Air Tanker (Slurry Bomber). I can drop about 2 to 3 cups of slurry (baby powder) per drop If your interested in seeing a video of it doing a Slurry Drop, try this [link=http://www.modelairplanenews.com/ma/click_trips/click_index.asp]MAN Click Trips[/link] video down in the June section

My original LT-40 Trainer w/ OS 46 FX, which I still love to take out and just hang with.

UltraStik 40 w/OS 46 FX and a Twist3D also with OS 46 AX.

A spad w/TT46 and last but not least is a SloStik with new brushless motor powered by a 1500 MaH 3 cell, actually has unlimited vertical .

In the wings are a CG Bucker Jungman which I hope to build this winter as well as a King Cobra. Another 14 kits by last count on the shelf waiting for the time and $$$ to proceed
