My Fleet's not changing that much

This is what's currently in the hangar:

Keys- rarely flown- 1-2x a year.= 1
somewhat flown- 2-6x a year =2
flown 6x 12x a year =3
flown a lot- more than 12x a year = 4
resurrection in progress.

Megowcoupe* flyable 2 (rebuilt twice this year!)
Sopwith Tripe* flyable 2 (here now, but will return to Brooklyn)
Twister 1 (I've got a crease in the wing- will probably lighten the airplane up and go to a lot less power.
Chrysalis HLG conversion* (given away- but still in my hangar) 0
Wren 2
Flyline Curtiss Robin OK conversion 1
Corbin (glow conversion) 2
Rimfire (glow conversion) 3 - finally happy with the power setup- 850 watts, Phasor 45/3 swinging an 11" prop on 5s.
P-38 2
Li'l Gypsy* 1 in NJ
Meridian 4
Minx 400 1 in PA
Bugatti 1
Leveque 1
Aeronca K (rubber conversion) 1
Antoinette 1
Forward Freddie 1
Miss America 1 (now in CA)
Jr. Skylark twin 2 (gotta add ailerons)
Super Skorpion* (glow conversion) 2
HOB P-51 (36") 4
Easy Built Spitfire (glow conversion) 1
FunX-E 3
The Real Thing (glow conversion) 2
Comet Gull II -converted back to rubber-oops converted back to RC- left in Brooklyn.
Matador 2
Boxster (own design) 1 (now in Richmond, VA)
F106 3
Herr 30" Pitts 3 (finally got it sorted out.)
Sterling 16" Curtiss Hawk P-6E 1 (it's probably done- it's pretty crunchy)
BMJR Race-E (underrated airplane) 3 (new fuse earlier this year.)
Low wing Skimmer 400 2
Sig Doubler 2
SR Bantam 1 (in PA)
Cannonshot (recovering)
Avro Arrow EDF 3 (getting new fan)
Sin Naps (2 now in Brooklyn)

Hot Kanary- Glow conversion (my first 1 kW plus airplane!) 2
Tweedy Bird - Glow conversion 3
New EDF flying boat 2
36" Buzzard Bombshell 3

New Stuff since then

K + A F-86 2 (still sorting it out- but I like the power system-it's a small, fast airplane that doesn't accelerate all that great.)
Radical RC Mini Stik biplane (great little airplane)- 4
Diels F-100 (still sorting it out.)
Kevin Cox F-18 3- probably my best flying EDF.

Foamies F4D 1 RIP

Gliders:
Talon 1 (in CA)
A4 1 (in CA)
Skeeter 2 (in CA)
Swyft 2
Sidewinder (awaiting repair- still)
#Apogee 1-2
Brian Agnew Vertigo II (new) 1-2
Resurrected- Thermic 50 RC 1-2

Discarded since last list- basically too bad to repair-

Craft Air RV-4 (OK airplane, but no real love lost.)
Wee Go (not a great airplane)
Caprice (tow line glider- eaten by a tree.)
Schweitzer 1-26 (annoying airplane- good riddance.)
Skylark (FF conversion- my bro creamed it. It had a full life.)

What's dawning on me is that I may be about in equilibrium. I'm spending enough time fixing, so I'm running out of time for new construction- or at least its slowed down a lot. EDFs take a lot of fixing- I'm more likely to dork one of them than anything else. In the last 4 EDF flight attempts this week, I had only one flight that didn't need some repairs (the F-18). On the other hand, I've made a dent in the stuff that was piled in boxes or hanging around unflyable. I've still got some long running projects that I haven't touched in a while though.
