Toughest Plane?

I've been having a bad streak of "crashitis" lately... I need a good "bash around" plane that is tough and easy to repair. What do you consider the toughest plane out there?

Mojo..... then maybe a tufflight4D. But for sure the Mojo is extremely tough.

check the SPAD website/topics. they're made of Coroplast and you really have to work to destroy one. All the ones I've built fly really well (if you build them straight).

superfly is very strong and can be flown slow when needed

gwinhh is absolutely correct, check out:

Also, the forum at

http://spadworld.net/forum/

If you are looking for more of a trainer type plane, consider the Debonair. If you are looking for something more advanced, try the Das Plas Stik. I've built and flown both, and they are great flyers and the toughest planes you'll ever come across. Give it a try, you'll be glad you did.

The Duraplane is very strong. Get the acrobat version.

Duraplane is indeed strong, but the aluminum boom makes the tail twist; it's nervous to fly. Taping the servos into the boom also wears them out quickly.

Get a coroplast kit, or do the SPAD thing. You will be lots happier.
