I have my planes hanging from the ceiling above my desk. In the picture, from left to right, are a 3DHS 41" Vyper Bype, a 3DHS 47" Extra 300 SHP, and my gorgeous E-Flite Taylorcraft 450. On the top shelf of the book shelf there is a HobbyZone Champ UM, a ParkZone Ember2, and an old E-Flight CX2 helicopter. The CX2 is what got me into RC flying. It still flys great but I seldom fly it.

In my garage I have a GWS Slow Stick with LED lights for night flying, a GWS E-Starter (a favorite foam plane of mine), and a GWS P-51 Mustang with retracts.

I am satisfied with my hangar. I have nothing on my mind to add at this time except another GWS E-Starter that will be painted "my way".

Ceiling, walls, shelves, closets, coffee table, garage, storage, etc...anywhere and everywhere the better half will tolerate for a brief amount of time. My currently flown stuff gets hung in my bedroom and gets rotated around with other flying planes from storage or the garage. Right now on my bedroom ceiling I have the tcraft, 42in slick, maxford albatross, and an eflite Cessna 150 aerobat. Also a stack of micros scattered about the house and arranged closer to the back door are the ones I fly more often.

My second thoughts - I have seen that Toledo Special fly. A friend of mine had one with an IC power system. A nice, pretty plane. Being a top wing GA plane it flew a lot like the TC. And I have a TC. But the Toledo Special is an impressive plane. Just not as pretty as the E-Flite Taylorcraft. And, the Toledo Special will not fit in my van with the wing on. The TC fits in my van very nicely.

Isn't the Hacker A20-22L a better motor with even more weight savings?

Hacker A20-22L better than the E-Flite Park 450? That is debatable. Both E-Flite and Hacker are high end motors. The Hacker is 15 grams lighter and has a great reputation. In the end, I think the Hacker would be a reasonable choice for the Taylorcraft 450.

If you do it, let us know how it turns out and what else you use for the power system.
