|Couldn't find a similar thread so just wondered. Just beginning to muse mine. For a number of reasons, nostalgia,performance, looks, longevity and memories (I still fly it) it has to be my Multiplex Alpina.|

A Junior 60. Because I built it, and it flew. Without repairs. After every flight. God, that thing was precious.

I've had several I've really liked over the years. The Ruhig Tiger, built from the 1990 Radio Modeller plan was a really great flyer, as was my Pulse XT 40. Mind you, it was designed by a US aerobatic champion. The third would have to be my old Dave Smith Saphir.

Has to be the Acrowot with 70fs in it. Just does everything, all the time, with no problems.

That's a good one. Hard one, but think it would be the Acrowot.

Two models stand out, both superb,hard to say which was the better model. First model was a Sid King designed Radio Modeller plan built "Pussyfoot",I built and flew loads of them! The other outstanding model was an enlarged Don Stothers design of the "Krier Kraft Acromaster".I flew it for years,sold it to a clubmate,and he wrote it off first time he flew it. It flew so well I've just built another,it's just awaiting painting..........................Mal

I'm finding it impossible to answer as models are so individual with differing characteristics and qualities.
Would it be one of several scale models that I've so enjoyed building and looking at but have been subject to flying limitations due to the original design of the subject, the beautifully finished and well mannered Mahers Pacer that I bought third hand, the vintage (in all senses) Sterling Stearman built in the early 80s which a downsizing member passed on to me which flies so realistically, has a genuine patina of age and draws admiring comments on how it looks in the air, my "own design" Hawker Tempests which triumphed over my ineptitude to win me the Aces 1/12 scale combat championship title one year, the impeccably mannered Extreme Flight Extra in which I'm currently testing a stabilised receiver which has made an already fine handling model even better or the handling purity of a Priory Models Super Nova saved from the club bonfire in part built condition?
I have no idea!
So many of my models have been my favourite to fly at any particular time but how do you compare such variable qualities?

Mine has to be my Hangar 9 blue nose Mustang, got it beaten up second hand a few years ago. Was really fit for the bin, but got it repaired and loved every moment of flying it since.
