If you had a $100 to spend on any plane, what would you choose?


Hello, all --

Just as the title says -- I am looking to do a giveaway to "kickstart" my R/C site and want opinions on what plane to target. If your budget was $100 to spend on an electric model (ARF or RTF), what would you choose?

A few examples of new models on the market:

Hobbico Playmate
E-flite Fokker DVII
ParkZone micro plug n' play model

I need your ideas -- suggest any popular, new model out there!

Thanks,
Garret H

Don't forget to ask an RC Group mod before you start this contest

As for a plane, I'd be interested in the Hobbico playmate

Thanks -- the giveaway is off-site and I did not mention the site name. Just to be safe, I edited the thread a little.

Umm no. that plane cost 40% more.

One cannot beat the value of the eflight P40 arf! It comes with awsome scale detail, a stand, and motor installed. $99.

BEST OF ALL, IT CAN BE RUN ON TWO, THREE, AND YES, FOUR CELLS! WITH THE STOCK MOTOR!!! IVE DONE REPEATED 10 SECOND BURSTS WITH NO PROB.

Using SS 12 esc as follows:
450mah 25c 2 cells.. 50 watts @ 6amps 7.5oz (stock)
400mah 30c 3 cells.. 100 watts @ 10amps 8oz auw = 200watts/lb
2x450mah 25c 4 cells.. 130 watts @ 11.2 amps 8.5 oz auw = roughly 250watts/lb

Easy hand launches, efficient, amazing slow to high speed transitons, amazing verticle,
nice box to carry it in, and great display stand for your desk.
If I destroy one, I will buy another promptly!
