I'm just getting back into flying after an extended hiatus. I've got a SPA3D for my 3-D trainer and I'm starting to think about what plane to build after I stop crashing so much. I'm thinking either a Burrito or a Sledge. (But which one? O.M.P. or Morris?)
I've noticed lots of you guys have been blessed with a multitude of profiles. But try to envision yourself living in a cruel, harsh land where, by Decree of the Emperor (wife), you were allowed One, and only One, Profile model. Which of your babies would you choose to keep, and why?

OMP 65" Yak. Incredible plane. I'm a 3D newbie, but this plane makes it look easy. Did my first torque roll today with it, and my hovers are getting a lot longer. Rock solid elevators with zero wing rock, knife edge loops with no elevator or aileron correction needed. Overall, it's just a VERY fun plane that flies great on a 91 2 stroke. (I'm using a Magnum 91). I think it would be respectable with a Saito .91. I'll probably try it soon, just for reference.

that "other" plane is pretty popular.how about some details on it.Looks like the OMP Sledge is beating the Morris hands down.

With all due respect to the respective designers, the Morris Profile Edge 540 is the Sledge. The OMP Profile Edge 540 is the OMP FF 540P.

And I can't vote, I guess I should have voted before I posted, I like the Sledge and the OMP 540.

Well, welcome crazystix. But you really aren't gonna learn anything here. They're all great! And to call one fav, can't do it man. I don't have the OMP but the Sledge and Burrito are totally diferent animals. Both are great. I think Burrito is better for 3D newbie, but I love my Sledge. And then you gotta figure in the other VERY popular models: FF Taco, EF Edge ARF, Knife, Yaks, etc.

Pick one, build it, fly it, you'll want them all.

Thanks Gordo. I was leaning toward the Sledge, but if you say the burrito is better for a 3D newbie, I should probably go w/ one of those first. Also, I like to support the little guys whenever possible.Before I quit flying several yrs. back, I designed and built my own profile fun fly plane, and it really flew sweet, although I never quite got the "hang" of hovering back then. My favorite thing was to basically just fly harriers all the time, but I didn't know there was a word for it! At any rate, I guess I'll have to wait a while to buy any new kits, as money is in short supply right now. Guess I'll have to just go fly my SPA3D. It really flies great, it just happens to be one of the ugliest planes you'll ever see, since it's made out of a Pepsi sign. I still crash a lot anyway, so I need more practice before I can 3D on the deck with a BALSA model.Anyway, it's Sunday, so I think I'll go fly until I run out of props!!
