My airhogs evolution story

So I started with the biplane after looking online (here) for the best micro off the store cheap plane. I saw aero ace, and thought there was only one aero ace.
So I bought the biplane. That ended up completely abused, and after I tried to do some electrical mods; I realized that actually takes some practice. The wires are frail, and the soldering points are tiny. I pretty much killed it.

So after getting all excited about the aero ace, I went back on here. And saw the F18. First one I got was a dud. Took it back and it was truly amazing. Flew like a champ. However it got kinda old, maybe it was a little to easy to fly.

I wanted to get a new plane so a friend could fly with me (since my biplane was dead) so I went with the sport. This BY FAR is my favorite plane. I dont like speed. I like being able to watch the planes every move and have precision. The sport is just that.

Then I modded my biplane into the gull wing. Looks good but doesnt fly too hot.

Now there has been too much wind so I bought the cyclone for indoors. I really like it. If you dont fly it like a stunt plane, then it really flies well. The trimming is a constant battle since the design isnt symmetric but it works well enough. (the first one I bought had to be returned within a couple of hours; the rudder just quit)

anyways I thought my progression was interesting, and might be helpful for other new people deciding what to get.

Touching Story.

However, I didn't like to sport to well. I loved the original Jet Aero Ace. Was the best thing ever.

I purchased that Green Dragon AA Bipe today. Now to wait.

about the cyclones, i've went through 3 of them! Those pesky rudders always snap. Grr.

Put a paperclip or 2 in the front of the sport to make it stable.
