nachman4859 I see in your long list you have a Sig, Cougar in the line up. I used to have one of these when I took this hobby up the first time. It was pretty cool plane to fly at the time. (BACK WHEN THE WERE ALL MADE FROM KIT'S). Do you still fly yours? Also would like to see pic of your 25% Skybolt kit build.

[8D]The 25% Dario Brisighella skybolt 80's was scratch built by this guy in Dallas Tx, he advertised (imaa) in the bones ... [X(] It was already old the plans looked like the dead sea scrolls... The Landing gear was rusty... but it still looked great... There is a hobbyshop in town that the owner really knows how to use coverite.. I had it covered in white coverite with yellow and black trim... It was Beautiful .... I installed a G62 it needs the nose weight... any other engine it would be tailheavy... I am a big fan of the D&B Guys they build a great ignition Module Its Genius they(dave) wrapped all the components in this little black module ...it just bolts on ..2 wires out -spark plug and a little pigtail for the battery.... no adjustments nothing . It makes the g62 sing... Fromeco 5200 li ion pack with regulator and my trusty futaba 9cap with pcm ... I havent converted everyone else has ..... so my channel is free all the time great .... I have been looking for someone who has another one so I can compare it to... But I havent seen it... Must be a rare plane. Nachman [:-] Laredo Texas

I like that, "The plans looked like the dead sea scrolls". You got yourself a keeper there thats for sure. That is one thing about building them yourself, they are all original, nobody has one exactly like yours. I still have my Kit built Smith Mini-plane, but it has never been in the air. I am waiting for some small parts to finish my GP 27% Cap 232. That one should be a blast to fly. It will be the biggest im my fleet, and the most aerobatic.[sm=shades_smile.gif]

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

<font color="#ff0000">OK Gentlemen,maybe someone out there knows something about a manufacture named " U- CONTROL ".  I have a kit of a C-46 Commando, made by U-CONTROL. Approx.-60" wingspan, designed for 19-29 fuel engines. It is indeed designed to be built as a u-controlled model,but given it's size a RC built version would be simple for anyone who knows how to build kits!  For some reason I'm guessing it's a 50's era kit, RC control being bulky&amp; expensive at the time. Beautiful spun aluminum cowls , semi pneumatic rubber tires,blue print style full size plans and great , cleanly cut parts, both balsa &amp; ply. No other info  about company,date or designer found on box or plans.</font>

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

Right now I have 10. Well, 12 actually, but two of those are pure hangar queens that I don't count. The list of others is as follows:

E-flite Apprentice 15e - the plane that got me back into the hobby
Hobbyking Minimoa electric sailplane
Carl Goldberg Tiger 60
Carl Goldberg Super Chipmunk
Great Planes Spirit
2x Great Planes Super Sportster .20
2x Great Planes Super Sportster 1.20
Das Ugly Stick

Some of those are partially assembled or still in the box as kits, or are in need of repair. Most were given to me by someone getting out of the hobby so I currently have more airframes than I do engines or power systems or receivers for. I also have a set of plans for a Lou Andrews Aeromaster Bipe that I want to build someday.
