What would you like to see as the new FT scratch build aircraft.

As a french dude, I will ask for an EDF Mirage 2000.
Design is very simple and somewhat similar to the vigen, you could build it with a cardboard tube and a cardboard triangle really.

I've been thinking if scratch building one of these using a 3s rated FMS 64mm edf. I even drew out a few things then stopped because I don't know how to do the C of G on the plane.

Usually you can just look up the engineering drawings of the plane and get pretty darn close to where it is supposed to be.
 
I’d like to see more challenging designs that use Power Pack ‘B’ or smaller, swappable engine & electronic pods, with wings cut from a single FT Foam Board or DTFB (wingtip to wingtip) fitting at the biggest within the board diagonal, same for the fuselage. Larger than micro, but including some master builder techniques with up to 6 channel options like ailerons, flaps, flaperons, spoilers, multi-engine, fixed gear or retracts option, etc. Call these, advanced mid-size designs. Some builders might like the master series designs but lack the bench or shop size to build those.
Your in luck buddy, I just finished up an f pack Master series spitfire!

I've always wanted more design for crop dusters. The more the merrier! Whether it's a Cessna C-188 AgWagon, an Aries Thrush, an air Tractor, a G-164 AgCat, or even a Transavia AirTruk. Any and all aerial applicators would be awesome.

There also seems to be way to few designs of WWI craft as well. Maybe a Fokker D-VI with it's rounded fuselage similar to the DR1 but only the two wings similar to a D-VII. It's one of the best looking aircraft of WWI.
