Hi Guys,
When I was younger I use to fly the "Astro Hog" does anyone here remember/know that aircraft? I just loved flying that plane.. , and for my question... I would like to go back and fly some planks, can you recommend something similar to that wonderful plank?

While I have no experience with that plane these two may suit your needs (based on style of plane). A guy at my field has the Escapade and loves it, looks very smooth but I've never flown it.

Edit: Or just get another Astro Hog, good call Canuk

Preferably electric, I used to fly nitro but I don't really like the "dirt" that comes with it..

Electric wouldn't be bad. The problem with glow twin props is the chance of one cutting out mid flight.
