Default stable, easy to fly profile

I'm looking for a profile that while being 3D capable has the ability to fly rather docile as a second or possibly 3rd plane when the rates are turned down. Something with good stall characterists that isnt too hard to harrier and hover on high rate? What do you think would fit this bill? A topcap or sudokoi?

The OMP Edge 540 was designed exactly for this purpose. With the rates turned down you can use this plane as a trainer even. We did this in our local club believe it or not. With the rates turned up this plane makes a perfect 3d trainer as well. Move the cg back and have full rates and it's the best 40 size profile kit on the market. Been around for three years and still in high demand.

I agree with AFSalmon the OMP edge is a very docile and easy to flyairplane that will respond to your every thought.

Awww Mike don't be so modest about your Edge! HeH,,,even though your right!

Get the Giant GS540P from OMP if you want the easiest flying airplane! This thing can be a kite if you want it that way. Shoot, on low rates my GS540P edge was easier to fly than my Senior Kadets.....

SpencerC: You can't go wrong with the Giant OMP GS50P EDGE. Mild to totally WILD

Yeh I know,

We actually did have a new flyer in our club two years ago that wanted to learn to fly and we put his OS 40 LA on an OMP FF540P and toned down the rates and off we went. Piece of cake and he liked this approach much better than the 40 trainer we also had. The FF540P was way more stable, much less wing loading, and no bad snapping tendencies. There was virtually nothing he could do to upset the plane.

Oh yea, we could even hover at about 3/4 power with the LA 40.

I think the OMP YAK is even better than the FF540. Awsome plane!

If you are on your 2nd or 3rd airplane, you'll probably want an ARF to start with. The Morris planes, Knife, TopCap, Su-do-koi, or one of the Goldberg Extreme profiles, 330 or 540, would be an excellent choice. They'll easily fly with a .46. With mild controls or a lot of expo, they can be as easy to fly as a Stick. Start out with low rates and work up. After you are flying your profile and want to try a builder's kit, there are several available. Paul Swanson's designs, Taco and Burrito are great as are the OMP planes, Edge and Yak.
