John, that is a TOUGH ONE!There's not one that i dont like, but.......
Yak 54, Sbach, Beast....any of those 3 because the AS3X makes them so predictable to fly and do stupid things with, even the Gee Bee...as i am on my best day, a pathetic excuse for an average pilot...still dont know how to do anything 3D, so i just twist the sticks all over the place to see what happens.....AND ITS REALLY COOL(most of the time)!!! Im sure that any of the "by the book, thoroughbred" pilots are gettin sick to their stomachs readin this stuff!
Sport wise, the PZ stuff is fun too...T-28, Polecat, Sukhoi..all good stuff, at least 'till the wind kicks up.....no As3X keeps ya on yer toes!
Warbirds, hands down, the Flyzone P-38! Moves right along and more maneuverable than any of the PZ warbirds, which fly decent also(AS3X again!)
Jets-ALL OF 'EM!!
Sorry to be so lloongg winded about this as they are ALL fun for one reason or another, and they are all holding up well....i and do crash em now and then! I guess no one will ever ask ME that question again...har har!!!

Got 2 more flights on the Pitts yesterday. A bit windy, so the moments before and during takeoff were scary, but she was fine once in the air. Snap-rolls were quick if you fed in elevator early enough. Tried a knife-edge, and did it really nice. At RCG a lot of people are moving the pushrods in on the control horns, I don't think I'm going to bother. Can't wait to try without so much wind sometime.
