    RE: Which type(s) of products do you prefer - PNP, RTF, etc.

    Looks like I am in the minority, Kits, Kits, and Kits. Have amassed more motors, servos, ect. over the years to finish many kits.

      ARf / PNP I already have a couple of transmitters. Might enjoy a kit also..

          PNP or Spektrum BNF. ARFs from time to time as well.
          You might be able to fly it, but can you land it?

            Did the poll get removed from the first post?

            Anyway, prior to 2014 I preferred ARF/KIT (plane mostly completed but no electronics). A lot of the servos and power systems that were shoved into PnP's back then were basically crap and had to be replaced to have a reliable plane.

            These days however, at least with FMS, Freewing and the new FlightLineRC, it seems that everything we get is of decent quality. So now I prefer PnP.

              +1 for the current range of quality PnP gear available -
              More PnP EDF & Warbird options from Freewing, FMS, and FlightLineRC would be awesome!

              "Almost ready to fly" (and its variants) has come a LONG way since I first started tinkering with RC in the '70's!!

                    PNP for me, I enjoy the final assembly and selecting the receiver I want to use.

                    I crashed my Freewing F-86 so when I replaced it I went with the ARF version and reused my electronics and motor, that was a fun project as well.

                      PNP (Receiver ready), I don't mind BNF is the AS3X can be disabled.

                        PNP for me as well. Preferably with the decals not yet applied, like the Flightline models. I also don't mind BNF if it is offered.

                          PNP, BNF Kit if I have the plane as others stated.

                            It would be nice to have an option for the kit version (all white) of a model. That way us builders could more easily mod the ship and paint it without breaking things in disassembly.
                            You probably would not sell too many. But I know I would buy one if it were significantly cheaper than the assembled and painted version.

                              PNP for me usually.

                                I prefer PNP as I want to use my own Rx's & don't want or need any kind of stabilization.

                                  PnP for sure now that you dont have to remanufacture them. Good power,servos that work,quality retracts. I do think arf plus (for edfs)is a brilliant idea. The guy like me who brain farts one into mother earth can pick up his pride along with the larger bits of foam,save some dough re-using the power system and be back in the air in 3 days(thank you mrc shipping). Nitro and gas only place for kits and old school arfs in my opinion due to the huge number of motor brands,sizes,and types.

                                    I prefer PNP, however, I also like some planes as ARFs so I can customize them to my liking. I want to do this with the FW A-10. Buy a PNP to fly out of the box, and an ARF to build how I want.

                                      As a young I built models from the sketch / plan. Recently I wish to fly more... so ARF fully meets my demands , especially some of them are very good quality.

                                        PNP first . Then after crashing, Arf+ Sometimes just ARF + when I have the required Power system available or want to put my own power system in. .
