I fly mostly helis....I only got up to a .60 with a plane, then moved to helis :P but having flown a 1.60 2 stroke pattern plane and a Funtana 90 I can say it would suck to go back to a .40. Same with helis. I went from a .32, to a .50, and now to a .90

I've never had anything larger than .60 size and probably won't in the foreseeable future. The reason is not that I don't want to move up but rather a matter of logistics and shop size! I just don't have room to build (and especially store) those big big birds. Transportation for big planes is also an issue for me. No $$ in the budget right now for a plane trailer or a pickup.....

Planes, Pedals, and Motorcycles! (In that order!)

I stopped being politically correct when I found out that some people were offended by it.

I'm in it for the variety, pure and simple

Bingo! Of the last half dozen planes I have built/bought they range from a 20" WS powered by a cox .020 through 40, 60 sizes and up to the 70cc gasser (87" Extra). I dont think going bigger and bigger is best, as there is funt o be had with all size of aircraft IMO.

Well I haven't been in this hobby long enough to see a trend developing in my hanger, other than the fact it is getting crowded. So far, everthing I've got is considered 40 size, from the Super Sportster to the Kadet Senior and 81" Piper Cub. I just know I prefer the bigger birds 'cause I can see 'em better, and I like slower fliers because I have a chance of being able to control them

We'll see what the future brings, though.

Well I know that I am limited to size but If the plane looks like a blast to fly I will try it. I have a little 31" laser up to my 40 size mustang. I have accumulated 10 planes in the past three years. Each plane is ment for different wind conditions and personal preference. If its sunny and not 50k gusts or raining I will be flying, If I can drag someone else out to the flying field.

I tried to adjust the poll after the initial post but it does not appear possible.

I think that the general concensus is variety. Few stay with just one type, whether it's the sheer variety of models available or boredom (and boredom isn't really the right word but it conveys the thought).

It seems no one flies ONE type--exclusively 50% extras or only SPAD or only 3D. A little of bit of everything seems to be the norm. And as we live our lives so do we fly.

Variety is the spice of life and we certainly do live spicy lives .

I'm finding myself building more 1/6 scale aircraft now, thanks to Unionville Hobbies ( d*mn them ).. built their Turbo Beaver ( 96" WS ) about 6 years ago and now i'm onto my 3rd 1/6 scale aircraft... All 3 are Canadian bush planes, so WS very from 96" to 126"..... I must say that it will be a real challenge to see how I get all 3 to the float flies this year though..... 2 was bad enough.....
Darren loves Floatplanes and dirt bikes

for myself i buy,fly and sell..i have a couple of guys locally that do the same..they build em,fly em maybe half dozen times or so and then sell them..i love the variety including helicopters which i tend to hang to longer.same with engines,i love trying them all out but seeing that i'm not rich enough to keep everything,beleive me if i could afford it i would .
i just love everything about this hobby.flying is only about 20%of my interest.the rest is reading and thinking about it..nothing i love more than putting together a new kit or arf and taking it out to the field for that first what a rush ...
