Great Planes PT40. It had an OS40LA and a Futaba 4ch 72 MHZ radio. Flew like it was on rails. Never crashed it, either.

First RC plane was a Sig Komander with a testors 40 MKII I believe. It had a squarish finned case...

First RC heli was a Super Mantis. After many years of trying to fly helis I gave them up to enjoy the hobby.

A foam Cessna type designed for a cox .020 back in the early 80's. I put a Black Widow .049 on it and flew the wings off it. Then moved on to the Q-Tee. The first full house one was the Pilot Q.B. Cessna 20 with an old O.S. Max .20 RC engine.

A Hobbico Nexstar. Bought it used off Craigslist, flew it for a couple of months, and then moved on.

I love the Q-Tee.

My first plane was the Goldberg Eagle 63 with a Super Tigre 46. I never did learn to fly it. I passed it along to my brother in law, and we flew it a few years later.

I first achieved success as a pilot with a Q-Tee built from the RCM plan and a Cox Black Widow.

My first RC airplane was a Duraplane with an OS 40FP. I never learned to fly on that as I was trying to teach myself. Second was a Goldberg Eagle 2 with a Super Tigre G40. Loved the airplane hated the engine. Learned to fly on that in a club with an instructor.

The Duraplane was referred to by the guys at the hobby store as the Dura Brick.

I think that's one of the best looking Q-Tees I've ever seen. Nice work.
