Syma S107, my first RC aircraft ever, which I recieved for Christmas 2010. This was the spark that ignited a fire, more of an explosion really...
KDS 450S with dealer installed Flymentor.
I crashed this heli a few times before figuring out that the Flymentor must have been set up with no wind. It would hold position, but as soon as position sensing was lost or I tried to move it, the wind would grab it and make it uncontrollable. I bent the airframe badly in its last crash, and destroyed 2 of the 4 servos.
Gootch 450 Pro with Flymentor. I took the electronics and motor from the KDS, and installed them on this airframe. Very nice.
Walkera 4G3 and 4G6
These are the helis I had my break-through learning to hover experience with. However their fragility and unreliability left me frustrated. They are now both on the shelf needing repair.
Blade mCP X
This is the Heli where I really learned to fly. Its robustness allowed me to make countless flights with little in the way of repair costs. I did wear the servos out however, and need to replace them.
Surprisingly, since I'm an avid fan of fixed wing aircraft in real life, and have 12 hours of time as a student pilot, I got into fixed wing only after getting frustrated with the costs and difficulty of rotary wing.
Parkzone Night Vapor. My first and still the one I fly the most, as I fly it indoors.
