What's Your Most Favorite R/C Airplane?

Okay, just a short question, Out of ALL the airplanes you've ever had, what's your most favorite one out of them all?

I don't have a favorite one yet, but I'm sure I will....

So feel free to post your favorite rc airplane!

P.S. If there is already a thread like this, please tell me.

My Favorite? Well, it would have to be a tie between my 60" Cermark Pitts S2B (slimer) and my 59" Lark X (elec. conversion).

The one I fly the most? My Day/Night flyer... the trusty old Super Fly.

Close enough... Super Tigre 3250 swinging a 18x10 prop. I cant wait to get it re-covered and back in the air. Its looking good so far.

I wanted to do an electric conversion on it, but just cant swing the $$ right now. Gotta finish my 46 Dodge Truck first.

My new plane, whatever it is... Until I get the next new one :P

Seriously, my old and battered GWS zero with Hacker B20-22S won the honours until I obliterated it after flying every week for 5 years. Must get the new kit together soon

My Surprise 14 is by far my favorite.

So much so, after I crashed my first one into a tree making too far of a turn on base B, I bought another.

This one survived last season and after well over 100 flights total (By myself and two previous owners), it is still going strong.

It has had at least 7 different power trains installed, and currently sports a 2450 watt system. They all ballanced out just right.

This is my all time favorite plane, not my best flyer ever, and it requires a lot of maintenance, but it's always a good day when I bring it at the field.

Electrics ??? Humm that's a tough one... it goes with the season, or which side I get out of bed , but atm, it's a three way tie betwen : Aerocraft' Apache, miniSlinger and Graupner Microjet.

I love taking my ParkJet F-18 to the park. It has crash damage galore but it still flie perfectly, and since it is damaged and not looking too good, I'm not nervous flying it. I flew it right through a stand of tall trees. It lost some foam here and there but flew straight out and kept flying. I also like flying my MM J-3 Cub on those nice, non-windy days. I'm hoping to get another park plane soon, I'm flying at the park more than ever.
