My list just keeps getting bigger. A larger P-51 sounds very interesting.

You know I was just kidding on the C-130 and Connie.

Yes. Though it needs some tweaks and to have the CAD for the wing finished.

Brian-how about some mini planes that would go with 180 size motors. Maybe a 20-24" supercub or some other scale planes in that smaller size.

Now that'd be cool, too... Almost like the Gillows ones, but without all the hassle.

My requests, in order;

Floats for Tyro-150, L-4 & SwitchBack Sr.
Larger Warbird, (not so excited about P-51 but I’ll deal )
Larger Pattern Plane, (Flashback is great)
Twin anything (45” to 55” wingspan)
Up-size the EVA, (3D & Bipe)
Amphibian, (anything 45“ to 55“ wingspan)
Hotliner
A full fuselage Super Slow Flyer, (ie; Dandy w/more wing, double duty as AP & for night flying with lights)

(and somewhere along the line maybe Mike can get the Tyro-50 finished )

Brian, It would be soo nice to see a 60" Piper Super Cub, with your style of construction, it would be easy to turn it into one B.A. Bush Plane, while still keeping the wing load light so as not to loose the S.Cubs's floaty flight and at the same time, not having a plane too fragil to knock around a little. It would be even nicer to have it kitted for the winter build season, I'd like to add a scale working landing gear & slotted flaps to mine, that is if you kit the S. Cub for the winter months, Please, Please

I think it should be ready for a Christmas present this year. I hope!

Lots of great ideas for new products. But the old ones are good, too:

My wish list:

I second the motion on bringing back the Urban Flyer.

Re-do the noses of the Dandy, SB and especially the SmoothE to take rear-mounted outrunners rather than gearboxes-on-a-stick. A $15 Suppo motor and a Castle T-Bird is a better/cheaper power system than the GWS EPS drives, anyway, now.

Floats suitable for the same three planes (and perhaps rear float mounts added as part of the fuselage updates).

Floats for the EZs.

An EZ with a low-mounted horizontal tail (ala SB) which would make an easy removable-stab/packable plane option.

In any event, have a good time at NEAT!

BEC, thoughtful set of recommendations. While not an EZ, the new ACE has a bottom fuselage mounted horizontal stabilizer. The vertical stabilizer tabs and slots into it, as well. With a very small amount of engineering and modeling, you could easily make both the vertical and horizontal stabs removable. Something I didn't give much thought to when I was building mine, but in hindsight, it would be moderately easy to do. To get the kind of flight characteristics of the EZ's, I don't see why Brian couldn't do a balsa or foam flat bottom wing for it.

Would it be easier and faster to just design a motor mount box like the EVA's or SBSr.'s that fit most of these ?
And I'll add the Tyro (100) to the list.
