It’s time to put your thinking cap on! If you could have only 1 RC model for the rest of your life, what would it be? Chime in on our FACEBOOK PAGE, YOUTUBE PAGE, or in the comments section below.
Giant Ugly Stick with enlarged control surfaces.
Capable of just about anything…
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.
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!
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.
one scale model….biplane o triplane model.
It doesn’t matter
easy to fly for its proprietor
An Airtonics Olympic 100″ hands down. Endless relaxing low-stress fun.
traxxas revo with options for electric and gas “switch-ery”
I would have a SAB Goblin 700 Helicopter for sure. It’s a timeless classic that will be around for years to come!
With bi-directional, full bandwidth HD video
I think that it would be the P 51. I like it because it is fast and will do everything that I can do
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
Henseleit TDR or Goblin 700 and a Krill Extra
slow enough even for me
I like the v22 yes !
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.
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.
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!
I would say a micro helicopter, because you can fly them indoors at any time.
I’d like to have a giant scale Lavochkin LA 9, what a beautiful aeroplane
Little Sukhoi 31 by Hyperion. Nice to fly but will bite if you get slack.
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!!!
