Re: PLANES THAT DONT GET FLOWN

I have about 40. that need to go up. Some need to be finished and others just need to fly. I guess thats what happens when you buy out a group of planes like that. I will have most of them running by the end of the year though.

Re: PLANES THAT DONT GET FLOWN

My showtime 4d 90 size had its gear break out 6 different time, even after some methods of extreme re-inforcement. That coupled with the baby saito 100 in the nose and all that crap that gets left on the airplane after every flight and the canopy wooden rods wearing down to nothing and the sloopy loose fit of the wing tube in each socket has made me not want to fly it for about 6 months. It flew so nice but it has been unbelievably frustrating. Some one please stop by the house here in Dallas and pick it up for $25.

Re: PLANES THAT DONT GET FLOWN

I have just over a dozen airplanes that I havent flown in the past year or so... most of which are RTF... some examples:

Sig Smith Mini Plane that I built about 13 years ago, RTF
Scratch Built Rich Uravitch Extra 3.25 that I built about 15 years ago. RTF
Kaos .40 that I built about 10 years ago RTF
Stinger .10 RTF, cant remember when I built it...
Airtronics Warlock 05 RTF (1970's kit that I tracked down and built 7 or 8 years ago)
Funtana 40 RTF
Funtana 90 RTF
Lanier TR260
Royal Cessna Citation
Xcell .60 graphite
Xcell .60 (regular version)
Estes Astro Blaster rocket glider
Hydeout II, YS140 RTF
Scratch Built Boxer Pattern Ship, YS120

Off the top of my head... thats most of them i think... Pretty much anything thats not gas, hasnt seen any airtime in the past year, some of them, several years.

Re: PLANES THAT DONT GET FLOWN

0, if I don't fly it in a couple months, I get rid of it. Sometimes I like something so much and don't want to get rid of it that after a month and a half or so I'll bring it out and fly it just so I don't break my rule.

Re: PLANES THAT DONT GET FLOWN

The only planes I have right now that haven't been flown in a while.
An Icarus wizard - built never seen a motor or radio (bought at the Huckfest).
A little foamy cub off Ebay (not been the air since fall 2005)
A 36" combat wing (not flown since spring)
I have another foam wing that i built from scratch in 2005 never seen radio.
I have a old CL stunt plane profile with slab wing. Over 30 years old given to me by my boss never flown by me - needs a CL stunt tank.

I also have a quickie racer that I just acquired on the first that has not flown yet.

Every other plane I have has flown in the past 6 months.
