I can hopefully do both so let me know. It sounds like most are flying Friday though so lets most of us plan on that for sure.

Do any of Aradhana's planes (rcbuilder.com) qualify?

I'd say they do. I just didn't think about them when Mike posted. His are top notch and he is very helpful.

I agree. The Lighthawk, Lightspeed, Razor, and Blade are definitely all "one step up" qualifiers for sure. Just didn't think of them at the time. Previous post edited...

A sore subject for some but - is there a Sirius 2010 or 2011, and are they (both?) rudderless?

Hope the "Rudder Police" doesn't spot this question - I get a lot of flak ...

Don't know. No big deal to give it a rudder if it doesn't come that way though. That's what I'd do for sure. Gotta have it.

Do I dare ask what order you'd put these in? Mike, Jeremy, Jim, boys? I understand you may each have different order. I'm just plotting and schemeing, this month looks good at work, and it's a BIG investment!

Can I comment even if I am not from the area? (comments from the perspective of someone that just had this internal dialog and spent some cash) (well, lots of cash........) The reason I ask is because this is a geographical thread and I want to be polite.

I think there's a fine line between Mikes categories of step one and two and some might argue how close they are, but his top list are the most sought after DLGs for sure... And so are the the others now that I think of it. IML*O *limited.

Shadow, Any comments are welcome.
We're just trying to help our local guys to the best of our limited knowledge (speaking for myself) and welcome any other comments which is why we posted our club thread in the Hand Launch forums.

Can't quote from the mobile site but in relation to Alex's question...

1. Stobel (just cause all the top guys fly 'em)
2. Steigesen/Sirius/Concept/FW5
3. Anything from RCBuilder
4. Blaster
5. Taboo

There is no scientific theory behind this order, because I haven't flown all of them.

What's a rudder?
My rudderless Taboo flies great, and has one less servo worth of junk to not break.
