Which "Old School" planes would you like to see go away Forever!

Well why not! the question needs asking , I started sloping in the mid 70's and I wanted to get rid of the Gentle Lady types then , but they just won't go away Am I alone with this?

If, btw this really rubs you the wrong way , I would refer you to my Avatar , "Treat me like the Pig that I am"

It's not old school but what the heck...I tried selling my Spirit Elite ARF to no avail , alas I'm stuck with it and it's using 6 valuable servos that could be in a more precision ship.
I should have saved my money for something that flies a little smoother. Live and learn! The wine in the photo is for after flying this thing!
