WWI planes...

I'd love to have any of these models again with a 60" wingspan...

A lot of fun with some ultimate classics. I only wish I could have had the Sopwith, though the SE5A definitely made up for it.

If you have anyone of them, be sure to include the latest pilot...

Obtained from a fellow Veterans Park flier.

My Aussie buddy John let me have this after he had three unsuccesful flights on it. Turns out he didn't have enough ballast up front and it was extremely tail heavy.

Luckily it survived, and I was fortunate to just replace only the motor/cowling piece and repair a landing strut.

A beautiful and slow classic flyer. Really enjoyed this one...

Another of the planes that have recently passed through my hands...

The EFlite Pitts. Designed by Quiqui Somenzini from the original.

I loved flying this plane because of how solid it is. You are definitely flying a classic aerobatic/stuntplane and you'll feel everything you throw at it.

I bought it on RCG years ago from a Northerner and have just passed it on to another Southerner. I'd have probably kept the plane if I had that spinner...

I added the wing wires and rebuilt the landing gear mount at least twice. The weight makes it hard to float this plane in when landing, a bit of airspeed helps...

Awesome plane with a 4s 2800...

The Fokker and the SE5A have been sold and I'll list the Electrifly Yak 54 and the WorldModels Voodoo Mustang next. I'm going to offer a few Texans and the Spitfire again...

I'm getting ready to move and I'll be selling off the rest of my smaller planes. I'll miss the bigger birds and will soon be missing most of my smaller ones.

It's been fun having twenty plus planes to fly but the time has come to pick out a handful or so...

I'll post the keepers and will post some of the others that I've sold. (For nostalgia's sake)
