Default ESM or ECOM RC new plane opinions

Hi everyone, it seems a lot of people have some good ideas on what ESM should be focusing on in the future. I've created this poll to get an idea of what the more popular ideas are. If you don't see what you want in the poll, just post your choice in a reply! Also, post pics of schemes as well, we want to hear from you guys, this is your chance to be heard!

Keep in mind, any options listed do not have a 100% guarantee they will be next in line to be made! Also, any options approved by ESM/ECOMRC will take a loooong time to come out!
-
Edit: Adding poll options as you guys submit them, please vote for your option!

Edit 2: See below for ESM/ECOM RC ARFs currently in production and not yet released:

50 cc Fw-190 A4. As a competitor to the Top Flite 190. Top flite didnt manage to get the V-shape of the main wing correctly, and a scale warbird-man
don't like monokote.

Added a few more, also I allowed for multiple options! If you post I will add it to the poll therefore I took out the "see my post" option.

Can I vote 5 times for a 30cc sized P-40!?  BIG hole in that plane size for the P-40.

Technically yes if you create several accounts but that would be cheating! It seems everyone wants the planes that ESM has in a 30cc AND 50cc. Several of their planes are just one or the other so far.

Oh yeah 50cc Bearcat. Nobody does one in this size.
The ESM 30cc Bearcat is a popular plane and a lot of guys would move up to the 50cc version not the mention all of the 1/5th scale warbird guys that have always wanted a Bearcat.
Not to mention that they are easily recovered painted into Air Racers which always look cool screaming by down on the deck!

Any of those German medium sized bombers would be great. These twins sized either for DLE 20's or 30's I would also vote for a 50cc Hellcat.

I have 2 esm planes and have built about 8 for people. They are great planes and fly great too! Toss the pull pull supplied and get the Dubro heavy duty and you'll be set.

My votes for the Mossy, the He-111 and the JU-88.All aboutthe same size as their Bf-110. (Think twin 20cc size)

A30 or 50cc sized Helldiver would be really cool as well!

I agree they should update or improve the hardware and/or pull-pull system and fully sheet the wings.
DEFINATELY replace the technical writer of their instructions. Heck, I'm sure nearly any of us could do better.

I'm sorry Tucano fans,it's just waaaayyyyy too ugly!

ESM has already done the Hawker Hurricane, Typhoon & Sea Fury.

Now we need a 50cc Haker Tempest, in the R-B (JN751) scheme.

At 1/6 scale it is 82" span.

It has to be a MkV as the MkII did not see service in WWII.
