NSP Edge
Craft-Air Viking (unfinished)
Oh yeah, and the only powered plane in my hangar-
Herr Cub..electric of course!

Just out of curiosity-Why do you guys buy more planes when you already have 2 or 3(or more) still in the box?

I'm going to have my wife read this thread. I've been flying 20 years, and all electric the past 9 or so, and my list is far more modest than most of those here!

Er, put it like this guys :

The NICEST model airplane shop I have visited in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD is Willy Owen's establishment in Bray, Republic of Ireland. No bull, I really mean it.
He advertises it as 'the biggest model shop in Ireland'. He's probably right.
The last time I was there I mentally totted up how many kits he had in his shop and came to the conclusion that I had more models and kits in my cellar than he had in his shop.

Like my problem is walking thorough the aisles at Toledo 30 minutes before closing time on the Sunday and the nice guy from Balsa USA implores me to buy his last Stik 40 kit for $29 so he doesn't have to cart it back to the truck. Oh, and as I was so nice he'll do me a real special deal on a Bristol Monoplane kit.

About 10 years of that kind of weakness and your cellar will look like mine.

PS - I had to write an Excel file to remember what I have and where it is !!

Umm, this is gonna hurt... (updates after my last flying/crashing session.)

(This list is electrics only in flyable status, no sailplanes or glow which taken together may be a longer list than this- I'm afraid to count. But the electric stuff is getting flown more than 10X as often anyhow. Time for more conversions.)

Megowcoupe
Sopwith Tripe
Piper Cherokee
Twister
Mayfly
Skylark
A7 ducted fan (RIP- rest in pieces)
Mercury
Wren

In flight testing- Super Snooper (continuing- needs more power- trying bigger prop)
Nearly done- Buzzard Bombshell. (now ready to go.)

No BARFs for me- the A7 doesn't count- there was plenty of building to do.

I've started thinking about another Multiplex Cockpit- I filled up the model memories on my first one and I don't want to have to fire up the computer when I go flying.

And yes, I'm another one who could open a well stocked hobby shop based on the kits I have lying around. On the other hand, I only started doing electrics a little over 2 years ago....maybe I should join EA (electrics anonymous)?

Uh Brian

If we both die now, I think you win....


(reference- He who dies with the most toys wins if it's a little too obscure...)

Either that or I'm too scared to do a full list as well.
