Default Looking for a big Profile

Hi,

I have a Saito 2.20 and OS BGX 3500. I am looking for a large size, great flying 3D crazy profile to put one of these motors on. I prefer a kit but would accept an arf if thats all thats around.

Thanks!

Charles

I also like the OMP 80 inch edge. I don;t know if you can still find the Giant su-do-khoi, but this is a great choice also. this was from morris hobbies originally. A tough-to-build kit.

I'd definitely look at the big Fusion. The 2.20 should work like a charm in that! I can't say that I have much love for the BGX's due to their weight and ridiculous fuel consumption but ok it'll probably also work just fine.

We do have both 80" Fusion and 80" Edge profile kits in stock. Right now my favorite is the Fusion as I like to do a mix of precision and 3D together. The Edge is a pure 3D funfly plane with extremely light wing loading. You have the choice of both styles and need to decide what kind of flying you want to do.

Hi Charles:

We've had a number of guys flying the Golden Eagle Talon ARF with the Saito 2.20 and love the performance. The OMP's are great stuff too so there are some good choices for the giant profile birds.

Thanks for all the suggestions. So far, Im leaning toward the OMP Fusion. I see its only available in a kit form. This is fine with me though as I love to build my planes. Been doing it for years and enjoy building just as much as flying. I just hope the 2.20 Saito isnt too heavy for the Fusion. Seems like it would be ok as the fuse is around 77 inches long.
