Gents, I thought it would be interesting to see some of the airplanes we have all loved over the years. I started flying I think in 1998 and I've had a few that I just thought were the greatest thing since sliced bread at the time. Looking back they probably wasn't so great but at the time I loved them!

Airplanes that I have loved over the years: in no particular order

US Aircore Cub ST .45

TT Fun Tiger Extra OS 40FX (my first profile circa 1999)

Exactly! I think we've all had several but it's interesting to see which ones we really liked at the time. I know some of them I would hate at this stage in the game if I tried to fly them again. That little .40 size GP Extra I no doubt would despise now, but back then it was awesome!

I have only been flying for 5 years so my list is not as long as most of yours.

My all time favorite is a Focus Sport pattern plane. I never flew pattern but I learned a lot on this plane. It was the first plane I really took the time to set up properly and it flys so smooth and strait. I don't fly it much anymore since it is unobtainium now and I can't replace it if my brain-thumb interface fails.

Other favorites include:
Skeeter 36
Zamfir's GBR foamie
Fun Cub, wheels, floats, and skis
60 size Ultra Stick set up with crow, wheels and Skis

I have had several other plane RIP but the only 2 I have replaced is the fun cub and Zamfir's GBR foamie.

Cool idea for a thread. I started flying in 1992 at the ripe age of 8 with a Hobbico Flightstar 40. My Dad started flying with me and then about 3 years later my Mom began flying as well, so it became a family affair. Dad doesn't fly much anymore as he's returned to his childhood hobby of model railroading, but he's got a few planes left. Hard to narrow down 'favorites' as they were all great at the time.

Flightstar 40
Sport Flyer (low wing type plane, forget the MFG.)
Goldberg Eagle 2
Goldberg Tiger 2
Scat Cats with 40FP's (2)

Hmm... lets see. Notable birds:

Sig Kadet Jr - because I learned to fly with one. My father is actually building a replica of it right now. Should be fun!
Sig fazer - Not just because it was my first profile but also because I flew and loved it for so many years.
Ultimate Kaos - again flown and loved for many years
Sabre 56 #2 - probably taught me more about profiles than most of my other birds combined
MoCapAss #1 - my first real "next gen" profile.

I've had dozens of others over the years but those are the few that stand out.

Sport flyer 40L was made by Thunder Tiger and was an ARF. I had one for a VERY short time. Another one that had my old YS .61 on it lol.

I've flown a lot and liked a lot but only two/three qualify as favorites. Primo's 40 and 60 and FliteLine Skooter II. I guess Mojo 60 should be in there somewhere as it was my favorite before the Primo's debuted.
