    Giant Ugly Stick with enlarged control surfaces.

    Capable of just about anything…

  2. John Reid says:

    One that would be crash proof, otherwise I only be able to fly for one or two days. ☺

    But if that were not possible, I would pick the Yak 55M from AeroWorks, this plane can do it all. Or some large plane like that.

    While not crash proof (although that’s a great idea, John!) I’d take a Ritewing Zephyr 2. It’s easy to build, a blast to fly, can haul a full FPV load or lighten up for slope flying, and it can withstand just about anything I can throw at it.

    Or rather, it can take everything I throw it at!

    Clancy Lazy Bee – I will never be without one in my stable, it always brings a smile to my face and others too.

  5. Conner says:

    I would fly the Hangar 9 Sukhoi SU-26MM 3.1m only because it is my favorite r/c model.

    Left this on Facebook too…but here goes.

    The Assassin from Crashtesthobby.com. I have been in the hobby for about 5 years now and started flying full contact combat a little less than a year ago with an Assassin. I now have 2 of them and they see far more air time than the rest of the planes/helis that I own put together.

    If you ever try full contact combat with a plane that is designed to handle that kind of abuse you will be instantly hooked. It’s the most fun you can have…with your clothes on.

    That’s easy! the new 1/3-scale Fokker Triplane from Balsa USA. I would set it up with a Zenoah GT-80 engine and a Spektrum PowerBox reduntrant receiver system. If only I could figure out which “Flying Circus” color scheme to pick!

  8. Donald Bolt says:

    The F22 Stryker. It is inexpensive. It does not need a runway to take off or land. It flies fast or slow. It can do all aerobatics. It is easy to repair. It is challenging for expert and a good challenge for a beginner. I love it. i have built dozens from scratch.

  9. blonde says:

    one scale model….biplane o triplane model.

    It doesn’t matter


    easy to fly for its proprietor

  10. Clay Johnson says:

    An Airtonics Olympic 100″ hands down. Endless relaxing low-stress fun.

  11. big dog silva says:

    traxxas revo with options for electric and gas “switch-ery”

  12. Jerry Walker says:

    I would have a SAB Goblin 700 Helicopter for sure. It’s a timeless classic that will be around for years to come!

  13. Drew says:


    With bi-directional, full bandwidth HD video

  14. Paul Glidden says:

    I think that it would be the P 51. I like it because it is fast and will do everything that I can do

  15. Renderman133 says:

    A Giant Scale F-4G Phantom, with two Jet Cat P-120 Turbines, like the one I flew in the air force when I was in Vietnam

  16. Bill Safrit says:

    Henseleit TDR or Goblin 700 and a Krill Extra

  17. retired relic says:

    retired relic

    parkzone radian

    slow enough even for me

  18. M. Melton says:

    I like the v22 yes !

  19. Paul Mayhan says:

    That’s an easy one: an Ugly Stick. It can handle any wind, it can slow down and be lazy if I want it to or do fast aerobatics if I want it to. It’s also robust and easy to fix.

  20. Gavin Willacy says:

    I would like a Submarine on a micro scale equipt with camera and tv remote on the transmitter :) I’d love to surf the reefs here in Miami and explore the canals.

  21. Garret H says:

    Definitely my GWS Corsair…I have lots of other planes, electric, nitro, and gas, ranging in size from micros to giant scale. Nothing is as much fun as my custom-painted GWS Corsair. You can pick up the NPS kits for $35. They are lightweight, powerful, and there is just something special about flying them. Best of all, a friend has the same plane….dog fights are a blast! We’ve even put on a few shows for the local elementary school as part of a military memorial event…they are always a hit!

  22. Gary Vaughn says:

    I would say a micro helicopter, because you can fly them indoors at any time.

  23. Graham says:

    I’d like to have a giant scale Lavochkin LA 9, what a beautiful aeroplane

  24. Anonymous says:

    Little Sukhoi 31 by Hyperion. Nice to fly but will bite if you get slack.

  25. Marten says:

    Comp-ARF Pitts python!
    Durable with beautiful finish. Put the new DA250FS in it or a Moki 250.
    That would be the one.
    Let me check the numbers on my lottery ticket.

    My Parkzone P-51 Brushless, that thing is a missile and flies like a dream!!!
