Hi everybody. I am new to profiles and Pro Broship( just joined five mimutes ago lol). I alsways thought that profiles had poor performance. Well was I wrong!!! The first time I saw one fly was on my solo day. One of the flyers had some profile kit and was flying during my solo, then I saw the aircraft hovering and doing 3D moves about ten feet off the ground. Then later that day my instructor pulled out a profile wildcat that he got plans for in a magazine. He then took it up and did some baisic aerobatics with it and then he clicked in full rates and this planes turned into a great 3D machine that caught me by suprise. I am now hooked or should I say ADDICTED to profiles!
As my first profile and second plane I was looking at the OMP Edge or Yak. I was wondering if this kit is a hard build. I would be my first glow kit( I also built a zagi). I was also wondering if the pars are laser cut because it is much easier to build. I would also like to know if there are any specific glues to use on this plane.

For a first profile/second plane I think I'd have to recommend Swaney's Burrito Kit. I've not had one myself...but all say it's an easy build and can fly pretty tame until you're ready to turn it up. It's next on my list as soon as I bust up my Pro Twister. To learn to 3D I might recommend you start with a SPAD3D and/or an electric foamy. Both are really easy to build and real easy to 3D with...they also bounce quite well.

My first was the OMP Edge and it taught me 3D, so I will always be partial to it. On low rates, it's easy to fly, smooth, light and forgiving. On high rates it will do 3D very well.

As far as building, it would have been about the 10th or so plane I've built from Kit or Scratch ( I don't count ARFs). It is fairly easy to build, just follow the instructions and it comes right together.

I hear the Burrito is also a fine bird and Swany's assembly method does have many advantages, but I have'nt flown one yet.

Thanks guys....

The Burrito uses CNC Router cut parts as they are cleaner than the laser cut stuff... Many of the parts on the Burrito are already cut, so there is a minimum of fitting involved... The fuse incorporates a 1/2" CF Tube that gives the fuse it's strength and durability. No more busting your plane in half at the trailing edge of the wing when you bonk it on the nose trying out a new 3D maneuver.

You can see more at www.swanyshouse.com/burrito/burrito.html

Thanks again and welcome to the Brotherhood!!!
