Wow, boomerace that is a nice collection of planes, all sort of them. I only have four, with only two built. cant wait til I have as many as you, but then I may never have as many, since I tend to crash, but havent crashed yet since the Mini Max got totaled. Hopefully I wont crash all that bad and will have a big collection.

Boomer you crazy e-flight nut!!
OK Boomer I know this is a hard question but which one is your favorite all around plane?
I can't believe there is no Tiger Moth.

Glad I asked , boomerace, it didn't take you long to line them up, take the shots and post here !
I'm a newbie of 4 months and a scratch builder mainly (don't know why, its just in me, 'spose). I built a foam biplane wing for my J3 stick the afternoon before an indoor meet - designed it on the TLAR principle, took it along with the glue still curing ! It flew !
Don't know who was most suprised, I kinda thought it would fly, others not so sure.
The wingspan was short although area OK, looked a bit bumbly bee but was very nimble, thinking of making a tripelane for next time with better visual width/depth ratio. Today hope to have my foam skyglider flying, also have a canard in the 'thinktank' they call my head.
Ok,Ok so I'm envious of all your planes, the afore mentioned Bleriot of course, I want most of the planes in the pic, the Sea Gull 2000 is a good looker too. I gotta have a Gym-E.
In the back room - ("I want that room cleared by the end of the week" -says 'The Authority') - J3 stick,
1200mm x 350mm black garbage bag plastic floater IPSA - the crows attach it,
Thropmonster 2000 - no TE and wire ends to wing IPSA/geared280,
BumblyBipe IPSA/geared 280,
plus several bits that were wings including a delta single skin version of Ken Hardlock Hills brilliant JSF, to be rebuilt properly as per his directions.

That's a great collection Boomer, but you know I have to bug you about this... there's no switchback there!
Add this to your repertoire:
|Jun 15, 2002, 07:55 PM|
If you'll notice most of the planes are foam! I am slowly recovering from the Kid's Dog eating my Scratch built bipe sometime back! After that happened I swore I would never build another "stick plane"
I built my first since which was the Gym-E and now will start on the Rake... after that maybe the Switchback... Trouble is I can still see that dam dog destroying my pride and joy on it's 2nd flight!

Boomer, great collection! A most enviable gathering of hardware Are they all geared up and flyable?
If you're like me, I bet that's the 1st time you've seen them all in one place! I've got planes in the garage, in the craft room and up in the attic. Some time I'll have to take a group shot like yours that's really cool!
Geno, nice start on your collection!
==I'm need one more==
Of course you need one more plane, we ALL need one more plane

Boomer, is a Mini trainer IFO what I think it is, that is, a Mini built with dihedral? How's it compare to the regular T-IFO? Did you set it up with elevons, or rudder/elevator?
What a nice looking fleet. I'd love to have a driveway full of parkflyers. One day...

Nice fleet Boomer! You could start your own flying club. BYO pilots.
I'll have to compile a group photo of my fleet sometime but on average my planes are much larger. But then so is my backyard.
