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

Not to toot my horn but I have over 25 planes, 24 have radios in them and are ready to fly. This morning I decide to make some room for new stuff and I stripped 6 planes which were crashed during the past season so I could get the radio gear out of them. Took them right to the field and placed them all along side the dumpster. I'm positive that they will all vanish by Saterday afternoon. Mater of fact I ditched a 80" Foker D-7 by removeing the engine and only 2 of the servos. Left the servos in the wings because removal would only damage the wings and the covering. The Foker is at least 20 years old and its time for something else to take its place.

Man... you rock.
Somebody's gonna love finding that thing. I know I'd flip.
I'm sure someone will love finding the other salvageable items, too.
We cashflow-challenged folks ain't too proud to resurrect a thrown away bird.
Somebody gonna pull and go, "Whoa... jackpot"!

Default insufficient air fleet

Should I get in on this? No. But I'm doing it anyway.

Smallest:
. Littlest Stick - 18" ws, Cox 020, rudder only

Largest (so far)
. H9 Ultra Stick 120, Saito 120

Most complex:
. Eigenbau C-3/10, twin Magnum 46

Simplest:
. Eigenbau Free flight w/ power unit from foam RTF

Fastest:
. Harter's Royal Rodent , OS Max-I 35, 140 mph level flight

Slowest:
. Goldberg Electra, MAS geared, 6 cells

Hardest to fly:
. Kalt Baron Whisper electric helicopter
OR
. Eignebau F7F Tigercat, twin AMD 0.061

Easiest to fly:
. Eigenbau three channel 72" ws, MDS 25

Impossible to fly:
.Global RCM Trainer 40 - totaled on low inverted pass, lost elevator. Goodies not yet stripped out.

Impossible NOT to fly:
. Goldberg Eaglet, Magnum 25

Most fun to fly:
. Hobbico (?) Diablo 46, K&B 61

Least fun to fly:
. GP PT-E, CEM cobalt 1506

Just figured I'd break them out differently. total is 15 fixed wing ready to fly (four electric), and three helicopters.

Building, in various stages,:
. Pica Duellist, twin K&B 40
. Northeast Aerodynamics Twin-Air 45, engines (2) undecided
. Sig J-3, OS Surpass 70
. Eigenbau Big Stick, OS FS80

On order:
. Duellist (second Duellist, fifth twin)
. Bridi GS kit F7F Tigercat (to be twin #6).
. Giant Duellist, 85" span (twin #7 but this one might not happen)

My wife also gave me a choice, and I DO NOT miss her. Separate bedrooms was not far enough apart. 700 miles is.

If there's a twin at the store, I've room for one more.
