Most Reliable/Flown in Hangar

Out of all my planes, the Electra has been the most flown and reliable over the years. I built the plane in 1993, and it has attended the 94-98 KRC fly-ins, as well as most others in South-Eastern Pennsylvania. I used to keep a log book on flights, but ran out of paper at 439

The plane is just built stock, except for a replaced nose after some bruises from trying to spot land on the tapeline, and an inline gearbox turning a 12-10 folding prop. Still using the Futaba Attack 4 with that receiver/BEC unit and standard servos. Not the lightest Electra out there I am sure, but it still cruises around the sky like a dream. Always predictable, no matter what the conditions. Simple and Fun,.....

What are some of your most reliable/flown planes?
