Stand Out/Favorite Planes of NEAT 2014


There were some pretty cool and unique model present at NEAT this year. For me there were 3 stand outs. In EDF it was the Super Viper flown by Time Flies Hobbies. In out of the box ARF/BNF it was the Flyzone Micro Radiant. In the category of just plain cool was a hybrid quad/jet Guanli Harrier. It had pusher props behind the ordinance and quad motors on the underside. Genuine VTOL.

For me, it was the ESM Dornier. What a model to see fly! It truly looked amazing on the ground and was unique in it's own class.

Adam's Harrier was really cool. As was the vapor version he did first to test .

That donier lost it's starboard main gear on takeoff friday., flew great then nailed a perfect port side landing bringing it to rest a bit down field but upright and intact. Excellent pilot.

Does anyone have any video of the Dornier flying and/or the landing on friday? I'm the pilot's (Al Mostek Jr) father and would love to see it. Unfortunately I couldn't attend NEAT. The retracts on this plane have given us fits until Century Jets created new ones for us. My understanding from Al Jr is that they worked flawlessly; Kudos to Century Jets. I'll take the blame for the wheel falling off; I should have better checked before he left for NEAT.

Fast and getting faster!
For me Sergei's scratch built airliner for me was one of the more unique models that I saw!!!

I should have mentioned his Aeroflot airliner as best scratchbuilt. If flies so amazingly well and so realistically. Good call.

I totally agree - Sergei's TU-134 is amazing. Rare subject, super-scale details, and flies great!!!

I only saw this Spitfire on the ground, but it's easily the most scale looking Spit I've seen. I wonder if it's a Savex.... Does anyone have any info on it - scratch-built, kit, arf, manufacturer, etc?

That's one thing I love about it, it's not a hangar queen, he takes that plane out and flies it. I think it saw air time at at least 4 events this summer, I saw it fly twice myself. Seeing an airliner that size get hand launched is just a great visual.

I never stopped to ask the guys at Time Flys anything about the Super Viper. Anyone know anything about it? I thought that it was a composite model until I looked at it up close. That thing had the smoothest foam I've ever seen.
