    So I was looking through the TFwiki site today trying to see how many Autobot's there are with aerial modes like helicopter/jet modes and I noticed theirs not as many as I once thought and I'm curious out of them which is the most popular and why?

    So if you have a favorite Autobot with an aerial mode like the Decepticon seekers and such, I was wondering who it was and why? :)  If not favorite, least favorite. I definitely don't like Slingshot, but i bet I'm not alone on that one.

    Gawd, that is a tough question.
    (i can separate this into toy, character in general, comics, etc.)

    Not counting Omega Supreme, G1 Blades.
    I am a huge fan of the UH-1 Huey for his alt mode. i like his color schene and his bio is neat.
    Close 2nd would be G1 Whirl.

    Hands down Silverbolt (G1). I mean, he is the leader of a jet group and he is afraid of heights! :)

    Blades, Mach, Wing, Star Saber, and I actually like Slingshot. C'mon, Rob Paulsen's voice!

    JETFIRE has been my most favored Air Guardian since before he was a Hasbro Product.

    I think Slingshot is the most remembered Aerialbot, and I liked him, he was true to his tecspec, and for sure Springer, best bot ever.

    Favorite charactor, Springer hands down, intact he's my all time fave. Toy I remember the most, Powerglide. For a long time he was the only air support my autobots had.
