Hobbyzone Firebird XL, back around 2000. "Flew" it once - not pretty - ended up in a ditch full of water. Relegated to a dark corner of my workshop until I tossed it out a couple of years ago.

First plane that I've flown and kept flying: Hobbyzone Super Cub LP starting late 2010. Finally got serious late last summer and can't wait to get her out again.

Re: What was your very first RC Model?

First rc plane completed and flown: Skyward 40(built 1996), with ASP 40 and Futaba 4 channel conquest FM radio. First flown 1997.

Prior to that, I tried building a Jetco Cessna 170 in junior high(72-3). Had a OS PET III 099 and a Udesco(Futaba) 3 channel for it. Mucked up the fuse so bad, it was never completed.
