I think the 2 vapors were very attractive, cute, the only airplanes that girls really loved to see and watch.
The red on the mini vapor isnt exactly cute, but on the vapor the colors are extremely easy to change.

Either that or the Horizon Hobby folks realy do pay attention to their market.

I'll weigh in and say I'd like to see brushless/2S warbirds. Maybe a Hurricane?

Regarding HH - yeah, they definitely pay attention to us! They even incorporate some of our mods into future releases. When they released the CC, I thought they had taken my request in one of the 'next AS3X plane' threads & built it for me. I had asked for a true-scale single-engine bush-plane with flaps - such as a Super Cub, Cessna 185, or Beaver. They made it even better by choosing a modern full-scale subject that happens to outperform nearly all other aircraft in the category when it comes to short-field ops. As the saying goes.....the Carbon Cub SS climbs at a deck angle that inspires involuntary expletives!

+1M on the 2s bl warbirds! With proper fighter-plane airfoils, flaps - and hopefully also with retracts!

we need retracts. its a shame to have to belly land and handlaunch if you want it to look scale and fly better. dangerous to the plane, you know?

Well the Habu and the ICON A5 were both wished for in this thread, and they are here!

I wish for a SAAB J-21A pusherprop or SAAB J21R jet, the first Swedish jetfighter.
I think its the only successful Fighter plane that was converted from piston engine to jet propulsion and flew in any airforce, not 100% sure.

I know it wont happen...

For a twin, I'd love to see an OV-10 Bronco. Just fits with the UM idea of small field work. I want something slower and more stable. These small planes get up and go in a hurry and my 40 year old eyes start to have orientation identification issues.

Low and slow, with built in bomb drop? Maybe a rotary GAU cannon add-on for the belly

Someone did a nice scale tricycle gear, low wing retract in the Indoor & micro forum a while back. Horizon should just copy it verbatim. I think it was a two place turbine powered military trainer used by several countries but I don't remember the name.
