I think I am just about maxed out at this point. Literally I can not think of anywhere to place planes beside inside the cars now.

110 Planes as of June 2020 with a couple of RC boats and cars mixed in. Some are definitely hiding in the corners, those planes I tend to fly once every several months.

If I had a 'favorite' plane in my fleet I would have to give it to the Eflite V900 - 3s and 4s capable, flies fast and slow, decently long flight times, easy 120+ mph when your feeling the need for speed. Yes, I do have 3 of them, 2 are hanging out, 1 is in a box in the corner. I rarely buy 'duplicate' planes and try to keep them varied but this plane breaks the rule.

I'd reckon a good 80% of my airplanes are bought from the used market. Rarely do I buy new unless its an absolutely new and innovative plane when released that I doubt would be in the used market for a while like the UMX ultrix, the V900 or the original Convergence.

Every single plane I own has a receiver and electronics ready to go for a flight in minutes. I do not like to have projects sitting around, I'd like them completed quickly. All planes fly without problems and controlled with a single transmitter. Thanks to Spektrum for the 250 model memory

Had a go-pro recording the event. Near bird strike right after takeoff maybe 100' agl. Interesting to say the least.
