Anybody have a plane you thought you'd never have this long?

I'm sure everyone does but got any pics of that plane you've had going forever? The one that just doesn't die no matter how many times you've crashed or banged it up?

Here's mine. Very surprised for a depron foamy too. I can't begin to count how many flights I've had on it. Had one nasty crash that I didn't think it could come back from, in fact I started building another after that crash but then I looked at it and said "Heck with it, let me try to piece it together and if it flies it flies"...

My little Skyray (Corsair Nut's design)...

Still flies awesome too!

Yeah.... a Walkera F-22. That thing has been though the mill and still flys. I can't tell you how many times I've crashed it and it still keeps going back together. EPP sure is great stuff.

Lander's F9F Panther. One of the first ones released. Crashed it so many times it's ridiculous (by doing stupid stuff with it). Turned it into a bungee launcher still flys well just ugly.

My P3 F-16 - several years old, hundreds of flights, never a crash.

My Walkera F-16, SU 27 and F-22 lasted forever, too, but eventually just got too heavy from repairs.

I still have two of the F-22s, two of the SU-27s, one F-117, one F-16 and a babycat clone tucked away. These were nice big floater parkjets. too bad they were discontinued.
