The Hanger contains (in order of preference!):
3S Polaris - an awesome plane. I will have one of these for as long as my thumbs can twiddle. Thanks WormBoy for alerting me to the design and Steve Schumate for sharing the plans. I have coupled aileron servos for insane maneuvers, well beyond my flying ability!
4S Durafly Mk1a - another awesome plane. The Polaris only pips it because it is more versatile. I cannot say how impressed I am with the Durafly Mk1 - it looks good, flies superbly and I love it. I just need to learn to land it.
3S Dynam Spitfire Mk9 - This was a HK bargain I think circa 2014. My first RC warbird. It had a hard start to life because my flying abilities weren't up to it. It has had some major crashes but just keeps on flying. The landing gear has been raked forward and it's been completely repainted.
3S HK Skywalker Falcon - This is my second version of this plane. They are cheap and easy to fly. This one has a full set of lights fitted. Not a good choice for night-flying as there is no pitch indication! I've finally fitted FPV gear, but yet to try it in FPV mode.
3S HK Cloudsfly/Floaterjet - got me back into RC and has copped a real beating - including spending a good week up a tree (and losing one half wing in the process). Added magnets to hold the wing halves together and has mixed spoilerons. It doesn't help the landings much.
3S e-Speedo - never quite got the hang of flying this on the slope and have made some stooopid errors flying it. Will convert to unpowered thanks to spares from a fellow flyer.
6S HK500 heli - got hovering this and beginning to learn forward flight before crashing badly. Heli's are hard and expensive and then I discovered the Polaris!
HK Wicked Wing - still in the box!
