LOL.

I am coming to the conclusion that the internet isn't big enough for my thoughts either.

Where I come from, men can discuss ideas without fear of offending another. I do wish I had seen both videos, though, before commenting. I had no idea Jim and Joe would feel they were the target.

From what I learned today, I lack class. Now I wish I had grown up in a white collar neighborhood, where I could learn to fit in, be bland, and discuss the mundane with a smile.

think this show was dangerous!!

and its pretty unfair saying the judges are possibly on the take.
the last thing they do care about is what kind of plane you are flying.

Well, you could vote for your favorite 50cc gas plane over at FG.

Really? This is your criteria for purchasing a new plane? Really?

Sorry, I utterly fail to see what being 15 has to do with anything. Personally I fail to see what the social scene has to do with buying plane, but if that is your choice and if it influences what plane you buy, so be it. What influences where my money goes is how well it flies, and to some extent the look/scheme of the plane. Those are my choices though... how a social scene is makes me no difference. Especially a social scene full of mostly people I have never met and will never meet or become good friends with. How a vendor takes care of customers does affect my decision to purchase though, and both companies do a good job there I think. Curtis is an incredibly nice guy from what I have seen of how he handles himself on the internet forums. I've yet to meet him in person, maybe one day at SEFF.... but on here he (and the other team pilots) display exemplary conduct. That earns a lot of respect from me.

Now here at least you make a good argument about buying whatever is cheaper. I get that. Most of us do that to some extent or another too. Neither 3dhs or EF planes are the cheapest on the market, but I do believe they are better flying than anything else out there. Lord knows I've tried a bunch of the other ones finding out
The MXS is a really fun plane, but is not for a beginner. Being 15 as you have pointed out, make sure you take it easy on the first few flights, or maybe you are a great pilot already and can throw caution to the wind... She is a load of fun as you get used to it though and get aggressive with the plane.

Someone in the thread made a good point..."The tough part for a poll like this is very few have flown more that two of these so all you will get is an affirmation that someone likes their plane but hard to say the best."

Most folks just vote for the one they own, and they usually only one 1

That is true.
Or it turns into a popularity contest.

What's the point of asking about the best plane unless you have the best thumbs? I readily admit most of the planes I fly are magnitudes better than my ability to fly them.

The best plane that I have are foamies, as measured in fun/$. The very best plane on this criteria is the widowmaker from crash test hobby, due to the obscene number of times I've crashed it, hard, picked it up, and flown again without any repairs.

I am thinking about getting a 50CC sized 3D plane for next year, though I will have to do a lot of reading to figure out how to properly set one up, or weigh an IC against an electric conversion.
