Both.

Just drilling holes in the sky is pretty boring though.

Flying planks and attempting some patterns is pretty darn challenging. Just something as simple as a loop that is a circle at constant speed instead of a loop becomes pretty darn challenging when the wind kicks in. Doing a top hat can be tough if your plane isn't weighted and trimmed properly.

At my Heli ability, it is pretty basic, cicuits, rolls, loops, immelmens some high inverted forward flight, piros, an occasional flip or two and backwards flips while flying forward, the usual stall turns, working on rolls on the verticals. BUT, some of my maneuvers are only recognizable by me.

Got Money? Send it to me, I'm a Heli Addict.

i mostly fly hand launch gliders (DLGs) and helis. at the moment more heli. i do have a whole bunch of different gliders, foamies and gas planes flying around, but helis and dlgs are my main focus.

and of course: hang gliders, nothing kicks ass as badly as jumping of a mountain with a wing straped to your back.

Oh now lets not start calling names lol. No I started with planes and I would say planes are easyer to fly but harder to land. But I like to fly both but heli's much more.

Planks and helis for me. In the summer I fly planes mostly, I usually fly my 100cc BVM Props composite Edge and my Hangar 9 100cc Extra 260, and when it gets colder and I can't spend as much time at the field, it's 90% helis. The helis are just more convenient when I don't have as much time and the weather is bad.

I've got header tanks on all my planes.

Yeah, I've got about half an inch of ice on my driveway that I can't get off. It sucked this weekend, you saw it at its worst.

I fly this

I designed the frames using my favorite features and parts from many helis, only one in existence.

I've since re-arranged the fuel tank horizontal so it can be inside the canopy.

Well I can see why the stick bangers do not like planes. What looks like 3d flying on a heli looks like noobie flying on a plane! Learning to fly a plane smoothly sure makes your heli flying look better.
