Model Aviation's promotion to discover the best plans-built aircraft
View all the entries, voting results, and winning aircraft by Rich and Gene Jorn.




We asked you to send us your Model Aviation plans-built aircraft. We were impressed with all the entries, it is great to see our members building such beautiful aircraft! All contestants who submitted an aircraft received a 40mm double-sided commemorative AMA coin.


Once we gathered all the submissions, we posted the aircraft online. For one month we invited everyone to vote for the best plans-built aircraft.


At 11:59pm on October 14, 2011, we tallied the results and are pleased to announce that "Ole Reliable" received the most votes with 13.54%. We will be working with Rich Jorn to get his aircraft a spot on the cover of January's Model Aviation.


You can view all the aircraft below as well as the final results. Thanks to everyone who participated!
