The Burrito is a great plane and easy to build. If you want an ARF, take a look at the Extreme Flight Edge.

Any of the Morris line profiles. I have the Morris Knife ys .63 rocket plane plenty of power hover at just over 1/3 throttle. Proped correctly that is. 13x4W on mine. Good Luck

Well, in the words of Billy Hell...."I barely consider the Fazer a Profile any more...."


Burrito would be a great choice to get into serious 3D. As would so many others. But You may have trouble with that motor. Most of the time these planes need a strong .46 or more.

It wasn"t my intention to use the os 40. I need a home for a 53 Irvine or a os 46fx. I'll trust you guy's to point me in the right direction.

Ah, then Burrito is my first choice....Irvine .53 or the .46 would be very good.

Just bustin a little on the Fazer, once you get annother you'll see how much the Fazer lacked. But it's good for basic flying.

Burrito:

Builds Fast, REALLY Fast!!

Is STRONG, much stronger than the "average" primarily due to the big fat Carbon Fiber Rod down the center of the fuse. Most profiles break behind the wing in a really hard hit, The Burrito won't. This is GOOD for learning 3D!!!

Burrito flys VERY well. The slab wing and larger surfaces make it "forgiving". You can yank it around without loosing control. More "manuverable" birds can do more, that's for sure, but they also will get you into trouble if you don't "stay on it"

OMP Edge flys GREAT and It would be a good choice too. Depends on you, your skills, your confidence you won't dork it, and your taste. The normal answer around here at this point is GET THEM BOTH!!!!

hey, don't get me wrong, I love my omp edge. currently have 2, one with a burrito airfoil and carbon fiber rod in it. HOWEVER, the burrito is more rugged and sinks better, and is much easier to do most stuff with. the omp has a more nimble rudder. but for your second profile, a steadier more controllable sink rate, better "walls", more rugged plane is hard to beat! not that the omp is bad, get one if you want, it does the stuff.

Consider the BURRITO as a trainer and then some. I learned three d with the burrito, now when I fly mt OMP Yak or EF 540 there is a huge difference in the comfort zone. Mine has been abused and nosed in several times trying to trim some tree's ans still fly's....it is one that I will always have!! Along with my OMP Yak

Don't know where you are. I hope to make it to a couple of them around here. Ordered my Burrito today don't know what else I'll need to complete it. Should I put the 53 Irvine or the 46 os in it? I'll be using a Hitec Eclipse 7 any advice on servo's. Man I wish that plane would hurry up and get here!

Thanks for the order Hans!! It'll ship out tomorrow morning.

Here's what you'll need hardware wise to complete the Burrito:

6 oz hayes fuel tank
2 2-56x30 control rods w/clevis (elevator and rudder)
3 2-56x12 control rods w/clevis (ailerons, and throttle)
Tail Wheel assembly (I like the DuBro 40 size one)
4 1/8" plastic landing gear straps.
1/8" Antena tube (optional)
5 standard servo's ( you can use a mini on the throttle if you like. )
1 6 volt battery and switch
1 RX
2 2 1/2" foam wheels
2 5/16" lock colars

I have to agree with Gordo. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then.

Just kiddin' Pauly. The Burrito is a real winner. I've never had a plane survive this much abuse.
