F-16 is my fav. Just look at the popularity of the Enroute, X-flight, Phase3, etc, F-16. I would love to build a little bigger one. Perhaps for the 75mm fan like the J-10 or A4. No one has one in that size that can take retracts yet, that would be a real winner. If you could do an F-16 with retracts I think you would sell a ton of them.

True but it's not that great. Hot wire cut fuse sections and Depron tails. It's not molded with panel lines like a GWS and no retracts. GWS can do way better than that.

Too many F-16's already. Chen, please do something else. How about an F-104, or better yet, an F-4 Phantom. No foam F-4's out there at all unless scratch built...and even those are extremely rare.

I agree with Kahloq, An F-4 similair to the A-4 and J-10 size would be awesome. How about an F-9F Panther or even a Cougar? X-flight does put out a F-9F but like RCAV stated before a GWS version would be very nice. I am building a Micro version of the Panther but would love to have a 70mm size one with panel lines and such.

Ditto. You tell me that you are going to make an F-4 Phantom the size of the Saber and I'll order one right now.

Ditto on the F-4 ... if you guys built one of those and could keep it close to scale, I'd definitely buy that. One of my favorite planes ever, and they're pretty much non-existant in the foam plane market right now.

F-4 EDF RTF already coming from E-domodels.
Panther/Cougar is a good one, you can change only the wings and tails and get two different aircraft. Good flyer, lots of paint schemes, easy to fly with no vices.

F86 is ALWAYS popular. Do an F-86RTF EDF, small size, not like the fly fly or GWS ones, but the same as your other planes.

Look around over the years and see how many F-86 DF models were made...more than any other type, there are good reasons. They all fly great, there are a ton of paint schemes, and the plane is always, always popular.
