This strikes me as a good problem to have verses lots of space and no planes to fill it.

This was shot yesterday at my club field in Lewiston Idaho.
Just getting used to the T 60 for sure, but I can see its gonna be a good plane. If you Twist Gurus see anything I should change let me know. I'm thinking my low rate elevator could use some more expo. I like doing point rolls and I hate it when I pull the nose up before starting. Don't mean to, don't want to, don't need to. But that elevator is so touchy...
Anyway, first twist vid. Kinda lame. be kind

In answer to your question, No

I remember that Extra. Nice looking plane. Should be really something.

Not a bad problem, except to figure what to get rid of...
making room for a new TF P47.. when living in an RV you have limits...
3 more park electrics and a Sig 40 size trainer still to go...

that will leave the 4 electrics and the 6 nitros that I do fly ... not including the P47

Sounds like you need to add on an addition, put on a second story.

What's the best plane for Cross-Country flying? I have my 84" J3 Cub that I'm tempted to throw another fuel tank in and give it a shot...

The "sissy" route is 9.5 miles, which I figure will require 1 hour of fuel at least. I think another tank, probably 15-20oz, should be enough.

Thoughts? I'd use a trainer but I don't have one. Ultra Stick would just fly circles over us. The Twist I don't want to lose. Nothing electric makes sense... I could use my Bergen Gasser heli but the damn thing will probably just explode instead of function...
