Yeah, I threw down for the Hellcat but after seeing he results wish I had pushed the Hawk! The B & V is cool but I think you would sell a lot more Hawks!

Presumably the lateral balance issues could be solved by judicious placement of the battery, whilst any yaw under power could be corrected by a throttle/rudder mix on the transmitter .......?

Yep ... what will sale is always an issue and as it is, hobbiest continue to want the same old WWW 2 planes. The spit, the F4U, the 109, the P-51 ... etc.

I would commit and prepay today for an LA-7 and Toni if Jon would make them.

Sorry to hear about that littlebird00. I guess once you've voted it's a bit like watching paint dry if the one you voted for is not at the top.

I promise the design/build/prototype and production of the winning aircraft will be a lot more exciting to observe and contribute to if you so wish.

I personally am getting very excited about the outcome of this poll. The current leaders are both unusual and challenging. That was the original idea that sparked this competition and provides an opportunity to show some skills! (Or not )

The Curtiss is "just a simple biplane" Of course a bipe has two wings that need to be aligned ... and some wires if you really go for it.

The B&V ... I think some very precise alignment and balancing will be needed.

While we're waiting () ...Let's look at the top five (as of 16 Nov, in order of votes):

Hawk
BV-141
Stuka
Zero
Fury

No doubt in my mind that the BV-141 would be/should be at the bottom of that list.
