Wow, if i had that many planes id be single again. LOL.
Heres my hangar so far -
1. Art Tech SU-27, running on 4s motors.
2. HL Rafale
3. GWS F-15
4. RC Mart Mirage 2000
Freewing F-35 on its way.
The GWS would move up the scale on like/dislike if i had a better power system than GWS 4600 motors installed.

Walkera F-16 76mm
Walkera SU-27 twin 76mm
Walkera F-22 twin 76mm
Great Planes L-39 (with 55mm RC Mart fan)
Phase 3 F-16
Haoye SU-27 twin 64mm
Haoye "big foamy" F-18 twin 70mm
HET F-18 (not really a foamy, except for the wings)
Homebrew Biz Jet twin 40mm
Homebrew 737 twin 40mm
Homebrew 55mm Klingon Bird of Prey
Hombrew 40mm F-86
Alca L-159 40mm EPP jet
Homebrew 30mm F-117
Homebrew 40mm F-117
Homebrew 64mm Space Shuttle profile
Homebrew 40mm "Rayfish" profile
None have landing gear
The only one that truly sucks was the brushed GWS B2 - Can't get out of its own way.
The Alca has marginal power.
The Walkeras fly great, and are sturdy but are way not scale.
The GWS jets and the Fantastic F-86 are fragile, but look good.
I could never get the GWS F-15 or the Haoye SU-27 to hand launch.
The Haoye "big foamy" F-18 needs to be 90mm, not 70mm.
Fastest are the HET F-18, the Walkera SU-27, the GWS A4 on 4S, or the Twister on 4S. All 80mph+
Easiest flier is the Phase 3 F-16
All the flat foam stuff is very fragile

SAPAC F-22 (on 4s)
HL SU-27 (modded 3s)
My favorite is the F-22 on 4s... 85mph level
My least favorite is the GWS F-15 on stock (4600kv) motors... I can HL her but she is SLOW

Walkera V-tail converted to 75mm
Generic? Haoye? Foam SU-27 twin 64mm
Wattage S-3 Viking
The only thing I regret is not having unlimited funds.
That and I wish ducted fans consumed a little less power. My pusher prop jets really scream on the equivalent amp draw.

Oh, forgot the Wattage Vector (bleccchh!!) and the RC Mart Mirage, which flies better with an RC Mart 55mm fan vs the 64mm one.
And a flat-foam Starship Enterprise that didn't fly worth a damn.
Also put a Powerfan on an Easystar (went like hell), and a 70mm Haoye fan on a Twinstar, (in addition to the two BL prop motors - what a bizarre beast that is).
