Well, it may not be other WattFlyer member's favorite, but it definitely is one of mine:

Elfi, non-aileron verson
Elfi, aileron version

And here's another favorite of mine:

Are we supposed to pick one from your list?

All I have that's flyable at the moment is my HobbyZone Aerobird-3, which isn't mentioned. I just received a new MultiPlex Easy Star ARF today (belated B-day present), but it's still in pieces, so I won't know for a while how well I'll like it. Heck, I don't even have a TX/RX for it yet.

Absolutely not. Just post what you think are popular planes and I'll add them.

In the future I'll have a poll to see if we can pick the top three.

Thanks,

T-Hawk, is that the name of it? Is that like a Wing Dragon clone?

I'm going to let in run a little longer before posting the poll.

Any guesses on what will be WattFlyer's most popular plane?

Here's the trainer T-Hawk along side a highly modified standard T-Hawk.

Definitely NOT a Wing Dragon clone.

Zagi flying wing

Superfly delta wing

Oops Posted a picture of my Irish moss.

Frank,

You of all people, and you left off the SQuiRT? Shame on you!

Add a GWS Corsair. And all of the ParkZone warbirds (P-51, Fw-190, Spitfire).

Oh, and on the listing in post #1 for Multiplex Easy Star, put a return for the MM/Laser Arts. Right now it says...

"Multiplex Easy StarMM/Laser Arts

Switchback Sport"

and should be....

"Multiplex Easy Star

MM/Laser Arts Switchback Sport"

Well I'm glad somebody is reading it. Thanks for the pointing that out Pat. I didn't put the SQuiRT down because I didn't think it to be that popular, but will certainly add it.

Thanks for the inputs, I'll add them shortly.

Frank
