Yep, and yep.

Don't forget high alpha knife edge (knife edge harrier), knife edge spins, knife edge elevators, and all the other knife edge stuff.

i got to fly Termagators Sledge the other day...man, that thing will knife edge all day!! Very, Very little control needed to keep her on track. That alone makes me have to have one.

Hey Gator can I fly that thing again?

Actually, the harrier/elevator stuff is the easiest stuff for me. Granted my knife edge elevators aren't picture perfect, but you can tell what they are.

KE spin is where the plane's wings are vertical, like on KE, and the motor is spin'n around trying to catch the tail.

I haven't got mine to do this , but I flew 3Dreaming light Sledge and it would do it easily

KE Elevator is just like a regular elevator, but in a KE.

I don't know about the KE spin..I can tell when I'm in one, but can't tell you how to get into one. Jeff W got mine into the first ones so I know what to look for.

These are just variations on freestyle flying, and I'm not a freestyle master. I just know my plane will do them. Once you get yours built and flying it will be easier to comprehend what the moves are.

3dfreak. The sledge will perform very well in all knife edge maneuvers. I am going to start to work on a video for Morris that is focused on the sledge but will incorporate many 3D maneuvers and how to do them. I hope to have it ready by January, these things take time you know. Jeff W.

For a Knife Edge spin just pull vertical, let it slow down, then throw in full throttle, full right aileron, full left rudder, and full down elevator.

One of my favorite things to do is put it in a KE spin and thne transition to a right negative spin just by moving the aileron stick over. You can go back and forth from a normal spin to a KE spin...Looks great! This plane will spin fast as hell...

For a KE elevator you get in a KE, cut the throttle, and kick in FULL rudder. Juggle the throttle to keep it in the attitude that you want.

The only manuever I can't do is a tight inverted flat spin...

ould anyone tell me what a knife edge elevador is
and tell me the stick positions for the knife edge spin
You're demanding!!

You been in a cave for the last few months?

Look around here...The Sledge is probably the most popular, most talked about profile around here.

It will do ANY 3D manuever and any other manuever....Much better than a Magic!

BotleRocketWar was only messing with you! I am sure he meant no harm. The sledge is prolly the best profile on the market today, for 3-d flying. You realize though that they only come in a kit form. Attention Morris Hobbies!!! ARF THE SLEDGE!!!!! with that said you will have to build it, but it isn't hard, and if you do a good job you will be rewarded by a great flying airplane. I have only flown one magic, but to compare the two would be like comparing a geo metro to a bmw z3. You want to be driving the Z3 don't you?

LOVE them!!

I went up and did a bunch of snap rolls and full throttle spins on the first flight...They have been thoroughly tested! The guy at the field that is putting the packs together now uses me in his sales pitch. Considering they weigh an ounce and give me more flight time than the nicds, I am impressed. There is a Tx pack on the way...
