Next plane to add to my collection?


Ok, I love my Aerobird and Slow Stick, I haven't even flown my estarter yet and my gws corsair is being built but won't be flown until well after I feel comfortable with the estarter...jus a bit of background info.

Now I want to know what else to add to my growing collection of planes???

This hobby is a sickness I tell you!

My family wants my xmas list and I'm thinking planes, radio equipment and batteries are way high on my list...well… way low on my list too, you see they comprise my entire list

So what do you recommend and what should I steer clear of? Links would be awesome!!!

Nimble with Gimbals
Do you already have a lipoly setup?

If you're liking the GWS kits the Formosa is technically the best flyer, IMO. A must-have for any GWS fan. If you're anywhere near water you should consider floats for your E-Starter (foamfloats.com) as well.

May the holidays bring you a hangar full of planes!

GRAVITY... Just Say NO!

parts, parts, part. You can always use servos, ESC, etc.... planes are cheap it's the parts that you'll always be looking for.

Or maybe it's just me.

If your getting all of these planes you should get a nice remote. Something you will always use and won't crash. I would recommend a 9cap with a campak. 16 memories.

Have to agree about the Formosa.

Also, Berg receivers, Naro + servos, a Himax 2015-4100 with Phoenix 10......

How about getting into the balsa...once you go, you'll never come back. Perhaps the easiest to build is the Dandy from www.mountainmodels.com

What about an IFO? They are almost indestructable and can be flown in a small area.

Gravity is my downfall

I second the Mountain models. My next plane is going to be the Cessna. Doug's planes provide an enjoyable building experience.
And they fly great.

What kind of build time are you looking at with these planes?

My estarter took 7 hours straight through, which is a lot of time in my hectic schedule.

Agree with Morb
I'm working on my first balsa kit now (Miniflash). I can say it will take more time than GWS kit, but not much more. I don't have that much time now so, it still undone
Foamie is good. Balsa is good. A little different building experience. Same fun!

It's the last plane honey

If your considering balsa, Mountain Models has some great kits, as does Stevens Aeromodel ; both have high quality, lasercut, interlocking models, and provide great customer support.
