    Thanks Guys! I'm absolutely fond of her!

    I would say the 84" TBM and the 110" Timber are in a different class due to size, weight, and powerplants. The TBM is purposely built electric thus it is light. It has fiberglass struts, superb quality control and engineering. They are planning on making a 20cc gas version, which would be epic. The size make it affordable, and to outfit it with ski's, wheels, floats make it extremely versatile.
    I like the bigger wing on the 110" Timber. It get's expensive quickly in comparison to the TBM. They both are very similar in flying characteristics, with the exception that the TBM can get thrown around easier, and recover faster. I enjoy flying the 110" Timber on wheels more than the TBM.

    You could always order one of the 120” TBMs: :yesss:
    White w/Blue - https://extremeflightrc.com/120-Turbo-Bushmaster--White-Blue-Scheme_p_5371.html
    Yellow w/Black - https://extremeflightrc.com/120-Turbo-Bushmaster--Yellow-Black-Scheme_p_5370.html

    The 120" TBM looks like FUN... except for transporting.

    I have a MMW Beaver kit!!! I have not started to build it, as my Otter is still in the build stage.

    Thanks for that was looking at the TBM but decided to get theTimber. Looked at the 120 inch TBM yes that plane can get expensive it will cost around 2000 by the time it is in the air.

    FINALLY!! started roughing out a fuselage for a pattern plane using the Evolution 26GX that @WMcNabb gifted to me a while back. It'll be wings and tail from a Super Kaos blown up to 78" and the fuselage is going to be similar to a 3DHS Aspera in profile with a pipe underneath. Plug in wings, not sure of anything else but working on it a little at a time. Pics if/when I can actually get anywhere with it. Maybe it'll fly like crap, maybe not. Might be a bit large for the engine but I want it to be zoomy, not 3D so we'll see.
