A-4 Skyhawk Ducted Fan Jet
Once of my favorite aircraft of all time.
I was very happy when Alfa released the A4. The A-4 is what the Blue Angels used when I was a kid so I am partial to the A-4. I do not like the avionics hump on its back so I actually cut it off mine but some like its charm. This plane is on the smaller size and you must keep the aileron throws low especially if you plan on flying with higher wattage setups. I flew mine on a 5400 KV outrunner and on 3S was about 105 mph. The battery compartment is small so lipo selection is critical, too big a lipo and it will be quite nose heavy. Also use the 5 blade Alfa fan for best performance and I also recommend the use of a 1.8" diameter exit nozzle cone to optimize thrust and speed.
Second winner is......
Russell Mueller. Congrats. I'll be in touch via email to send out the GC.
Twister Medevac V2 RTF Co-Axial R/C Helicopter
I have several coaxial rotor helicopters, and without a doubt, this is the most stable, and easiest to fly of the bunch. I like it better than the Heli-Max Axe EZ and Coco Lama V3. I put floats on one of them, and even though the extra weight makes for slightly shorter flights, it doesn't seem to affect the super stability.
