I've been flying for 6 years. (2ch helis may not count...
I started with an Esky V3 Lama. (a great beginner heli, IMHO I still have the poor thing) I decided I didn't like helicopters, and got into planes; never looked back. I received a Hobbyzone Mini Super Cub for Christmas 3 years ago. Another great airplane. I still have it, since converted it to glow power.
Then a couple .40 size planes, a handful of micros, and a Copper Head Aviation Extra Stiffy. That was an awesome plane, until the HS-55 on the elevator died.
I test fly all my uncle's new planes before he flies them.
I have been able to fly any plane that I have tried to fly. Wings, Big Stiks, float planes, slopers, bipes, EDF's, etc. I just wish I had more time to for this hobby.
I have a 1st Gen micro Sukhoi. Once it was heavy with repairs, I installed a corsair motor, a GWS 5x3, and a Hyperion 160 lipo. It flies like a pylon racer now.
