My wife wants to know what I want for Christmas?

My wife wants to know what I want for Christmas? I figured a new plane, but which one? I curently have the Big Stik 40 and Lazy Tiger, both .40 size electric conversions, 2 slowsticks(1 for AP), a Formosa, Tiger Moth 400, Megastreak and a Sky Scooter. All brushless and most are Lipo powered.
Obviously I don't NEED another plane, but if get one, what should it be? I was thinking maybe something a little sturdier than the SS for a camera plane. I also think a ducted fan might be cool. I'm not really into gliders and indoor planes, so that is out. I have already owned some wings, and a couple Twinjets.
I am not sure what to ask for, any ideas?

Wow! What a cool wife unit!

A good spot to get the juices flowing is the review section. I was just over there, looking at the Aero Groove http://www.rcgroups.com/links/index....at=198&id=4670 Hmmmmmm..... Looks like a winner!

Have you tried 3D flying?
Want a better Transmitter?
How about tuning gadgets (wattmeter, tacho, digital scales)?

I'v got about every accessory I could want including video downlink, and a few AP cameras.
The Aerogroove looks cool, but with 3 kids, I would never get a kit finished.
I may just get a Magpie and set it up for AP, but with my wifes blessing, I wanted to spend more than $50

Already got this from sanny clause/wife.....
However, why not try this.....get yourself a nice sailplane or hotliner? Get like a Jerry or a Nike, brushless motor and folding prop and have yourself some serious fun!!!! I have 2 sailplanes and they are a complete blast!!!!
