Ever thought about a Maxford Jenny? Seems to be quite nice and has a 38 inch wingspan. On sale this weekend for $150.00. Looked at it many time and wish they had a Tiger Moth.

Nice plane. I would like it better if it was not transparent. Not sure my budget would allow for it.
Aluminum case is nice touch.

You can get it in solid yellow also in the pull down under the price, but I understand it is rather steep, but for what you get, it ain't expensive either. Just noticed it is out of stock.

Closest thing they have to parkflyer is a 55" Bucker Jungmann. Have you checked out MaxfordUSA? They often have interesting stuff.

I drive a Honda Accord Coupe ( 30 mpg!) so I have to watch the size of airplanes.
I am actually thinking of simple airplanes.
The Stevens Aeromodel Squirt might work. But still looking. An arf would be helpful to me. But GF might be able to build the squirt for me.

You may know this but Murocflyer has collected volunteers to build planes for those who can't... might be worth checking out.

Yes I do know. And it is a wonderful idea too.
My GF has been learning to build and fly. She built her ptm and did a nice job. She is working on her MM SmoothE sport now. And is proving to be a clean builder.

I still have to decide on the right plane. And come up with $$ for it.

1987tc, you might want to look at the e-flite Cessna Aerobat. Moderate size. Beautifully made and detailed. Not quite as slow as a Pico TM, but wonderful flight characteristics. Very realistic in the air. Or on the ground, for that matter with the trike landing gear. Give a look. Do let us know what you ultimately get.
