Don, I just keep rotating my stock of birds. Buy em, build em, customize em, fly em, then give em away to my club buds or some other deserving new pilot. I guess I get bored with em. After all the work and such to me they just become another project done, and I'm looking for something new to start.

One of my last ones, and I still haven't flown it yet so it's safe, was taking an Eflite Airliner and going bonkers on it. I glassed it, installed electric retracts with servo operated gear doors. Installed larger EDF units and motors. Built my own working nav lamps, landing lamps, beacons, strobes, tail emblem illumination lamps, even cockpit lamps.

Even have the lamp operations tricked out. When the gear is deployed, the landing lamps and cockpit lamps come on. Gear retracts and out go the lights.

And I even take on others problems and repair em, crashed birds that I rehab back into flight status. Three of my current ones are rebuilt trash can saves.

And not just birds. I have three 1/6th Stuarts and a Hummer en route for me to work some magic on for someone else.

Hey, it keeps me off the streets at night.
