    Going along with Rob Lay's Hobby and Pilot Forum threads How about all of the R/C pilots of Ferrari Chat show the contents of your Hangers? Starting with mine nothing impressive but it is a start :)

    One of my friends is into model helis. He has an xcell .60 size, top of the line a few years aog. I helped him build it. Hes a realy talented pilot. He moved onto full scale aircraft now, and is in the process of getting his pilots licence now. He still flys the xcell regularly. He also has some more helis (shuttle, had another xcell that he won, and i think he still has a concept .30 which was his first heli).

    About an hour a day, I am addicted to Aerofly Professional and RealFlight. Realflight comes with a TX box and is good. Aerofly Pro is awesome and you can use your own TX. The graphics are insane! A bunch of fun!

    I fly mostly electrics but still like those 1/2a Cox engines. Electric flight technology (electric motor and battery) has improved exponentially such that anything, even ducted fan jets, can be flown electric these days. Stay tuned for more photos; I'll post them later when I get home from work.

    I can agree with that one i try to fly RealFlight at least 4 to 5 times a week. In fact this weekend i will be teaching my girlfriend on RealFlight Before i take the Kadet Sr. out and let her get a taste of the real thing :)

    I have yet to even see Aerofly so i dont know whow well it works?

    Dale, I usually attend the Superman jet rally (as a spectator) in Metropolis, IL- the biggest gathering in the US. These jets are just amazing. The sound of their turbines are for real!. Once there was a twin turbine F-18 Hornet for sale - the owner was asking $20K! (I'll probably consider getting a Mondial 8 for that).

    Peters, GWS products are very popular in the electric community. I use some of their servos and micro receivers.

    Beast, do you fly electrics at all?

    I bought a EZ P-51 Mustang with retracts for my g/f and a Kyosho F4U Corsair with Robart spring retracts and a Top Flite cockpit kit for it for myself,

    This was over 2 years ago and I have never bothered to put them together as I haven't bought the Radios or engines, I have never flown a R/C Plane also so I need to buy a trainer as I am sure I would wreck them on the first flight.

    Its a shame as they would both be nice planes if finished, for now I just look at the boxes in the closet
