Default Vote for the $100 EDF semi scratch anything goes contest!

The deadline has passed, and we've lost a few along the way. There are 5 submissions for the contest. Please vote for your favorite. As usual, a tough choice. Good luck to all! Polls are set to close in 14 days from today.

Totally Awesome Builds Everyone, Well Done, All the Planes Fly Great and its almost Impossible to Vote for just One.
Unfortunately, I had to drop out of the contest, Just to many issues that I have to help others with, My In-laws have a double wide Trailer home built in 1978, 37 years old, and the plastic plumbing is sprouting leaks and damaging the Press Wood Board floors, I am Having to cut out water damaged floors and replace them with plywood and replace the plastic water lines, what a pain, one day I repaired 3 water leaks, one by the bathroom, and 2 by the kitchen, I repaired one water line that pulled apart, and after that about 3 feet down the line, it had a pin hole leak in the plastic line, cut and splice that for now untill I can replace the entire plastic line with a new red hot water plastic hose, I replaced 2 sections of Pressed Wood Floors so far and have to replace a 3rd section in the kitchen, before people fall though the floor I hate press wood once Press wood gets wet, its a goner, as people have noticed, I have not been on Wattflyers very much, I bought a Hot Water Expansion tank and need to install that by the water heater, I belive the hot water heater is building up Excessive water pressure and causing the old plastic water line to fail, the expansion tank will help to keep the water pressure down to where it should be at, water expands when it gets hot and builds up the water pressure, I had to install a water expansion tank on my home too because of the same problem, high water pressure from expansion, popping off the hot water expansion valve, I solved that problem Take care everyone, Chellie

Thanks AEAJR for making this a sticky.

To all who drop in here, of course you don't have to fly an EDF to vote. Just appreciate the hard work the entrants put in, and just review the products of their work and vote on your favorite.

These guys made it a difficult choice. I haven't even voted yet, as I'm still trying to decide. I really like the scale planes and appreciate the work and skill put into them. But I also like the high performance ones, and appreciate there's skill involved designing and setting them up to fly that way. If any of the entrants could help sway my decision ( $! ) that would sure help!

Man - some amazing builds in this thread. Congratulations to everyone.

I'm not even remotely tempted to vote for myself.

Every one of these are just fantastic! I've watched every video twice and I still can't decide who to vote for.

Well done to all of the builders. Two thumbs way, way up!

The polls are closed, and it looks like Crispy's Batwing came out the winner! Congratulations Crispy! They're all great builds but there can only be one winner. Now, where did I put that trophy...?

I felt Bad about having to drop out of the EDF Build Competition , just to many problems arose that I had to take care of, The plumbing in my home and My In laws trailer home and floor repairs still have me going, almost done with them now, Soooooo to make me feel better, I went out and Bought a New Summer Dress LOL, here it is, I think I will need to wear some cut off Jeans with it, it might be a little to Short I May be a Little Bit of a Hoochie Mama, But I am Not That Much of a Hoochie Mama LOL

How'd you get that picture of my wife, Chellie?

Lol! Well better luck next time for all of us dropouts. I'm still hoping to see some of them that were partly done fly. They were all cool builds, and it really was hard to choose. A 'job well done' for everyone who made any progress. (Unlike me!)

Crispy, I sent the request for your award. Hopefully you'll see it soon. Congratulations again!

Thanks Don for the award, to those that built planes for the competition and those that voted.
No real winner or looser just a good excuse to build something!
