Poll
The next FMS warbirds in the 1400-1500mm (55-60inches) class! 2ND ROUND!!!

Hey guys,

after the first poll, the 16 weakest have been eliminated and 6 new late entries will be added to this round.

The option "none of the above" is also eliminated as there was plenty of time to add late entries.

Again:
- for pictures of the various planes, please kindly copy&paste the name of the aircraft into Google Image search.
- this poll is not to find the one next warbird. Every plane that reaches a certain score is a potential future design!!!
- there is no different version for a Spitfire in this poll. The Spitfire could use a redesign anyway. If that is ever going to happen, there will be a separate poll about the preferred Spitfire version...

Ok, there are 30 options in this 2nd round. One vote each...

EDIT: this poll is closed now! Please join the Semi Final Poll!

Cheers,
Bernhard

The top runners of this poll are going to enter a final runoff, just to see which of these top runners are amongst the top 5...

That does not mean that all of the others won't be done.
However, bets are that the probability of one of the finalists being made next year is greater. No real surprises there anyway

Cheers,
Bernhard

The high number of votes in the first poll shows, that the interest in new FMS planes in this class is still present. It will be interesting to see, how many votes are given in the second poll. I hope that people who voted for eliminated planes will continue to vote till the last poll. This should concentrate the votes on planes which would find most byers in the next release.

Otherwise 90% of potential byers will be disappointed if a plane wins the last poll with the same number of votes like in the first poll.

HJ, this is not the final poll...
The final poll will have about 10 or so planes in it, so it should be that the winner of that final poll has more votes then any of the others before...

And as I said: this does not mean that the winner of the final round will be made and all the others will be discarded. These polls are more to show the general interest. Any of the final round birds would qualify for production. And also, there are even planes amongst the loosers of Round 1 that still might be made in the future...
In fact, any warbird qualifies in the long view. This series of polls is a mark for priority if you will
Without guarantee that is

Cheers,
Bernhard

Only fair to have Me262 properly presented as well

Mig 3 for me, might not be the best bet for an easy to fly model though which seems to be a bit of an FMS prerequisite. Would be interesting to see if they could create one that would slow down nicely for landings.

Anything foam will fly well. If not, the e.g. Bf109 would be pretty hard to fly.
The wingload is just so much less than on the original birds...

At my RC Club, a member used to have one large 60 size Bf-109 and it was very scale and great looking but, it was made of traditional "Kit" Balsa and Light Plywood and it was Glow. On final if he throttled down too much it would award you with an Ugly tip stall. He had to fly it in with nothing less than 3/4 throttle. It was heavy!

Foam is the ticket for a more manageable experience

I have to admit.... I'm a little biased towards American planes... I might be able to grimace and buy other countries' planes... If they were allies.... But I can't bring myself to own an Axis plane.... Don't really know why... It just feels wrong...

However...

For some reason I would feel no guilt in buying a Dornier Do-335... That plane is just awesome!

LOL Barrett!

Anyway, the Do335 saw most of its airborne time under allied command anyway I guess, so maybe that's why you don't feel the unbearable guilt of sending a German war machine to the sky

Sorry for the teasing
It's just that I had the feeling that these days, after 70 years, the only people who feel wrong about having an axis model plane are the Germans themselves

Cheers,
Bernhard

In other words: As a German, you have to bye two allied birds first, say a P-51 and a P-47, before you feel free to fly a Bf-109. As longer as I think about it, it really makes sense to practise with these birds before you try a 109

I hope we will see a MIG 3 in the nearer future with Winter Moscow paint scheme only for my tired old eyes.
