I'm quite impressed with the line-up that E-Flite has come out with... I think my only disappointment is that they seem to feel that 3D planes cover the parkflyer niche.

While the SE5 and the Jenny are nice planes, they're really indoor flyers. Apart from a flock of 3D planes (which do nothing for me) all E-Flite has in the parkflyer size are the P-47 and the Lightning.

As Bob_Suruncle said, it would be nice to see something in the 36-40" span range. While the Taylorcraft is a beauty, and close to that size, I think it's still a bit on the large side for park flying.

When E-Flite produced the P-47 a couple of years ago, I had high hopes. It's an excellent model with excellent flying qualities, and the price can't be beat. The Lightning, while a beautiful model, is a bit more complex, and defintely more fragile than the Jug.

Has E-Flite abandoned the idea of park-sized scale-ish foam planes?
