Default Which Morris Plane?

Which Morris Plane should I get? I have a os50sx for power. I am looking at the the Knife, TopCap, and the Su-do-khoi. Just looking for some input and suggestions. Thanks

I am currently flying a .40 Su-Do-Khoi which if a great airplane, but does not knife edge without a lot of coupling. I think the sledge 540 is a great all around airplane, You should check it out! Ricky

Sledge!

Everyone who has gone from a Top Cap or the others to a Sledge says it's better. I have flown all the others and if the Sledge is better, then it's one hell of an airplane! Mine should be here tomorrow...

I'll try to answer your question as you haven't responded to the other suggestions. If you want to learn to hover, do slow upright and inverted flat spins, some decent knife edge, and all around slow and close in flying, the Knife can't be beat if kept as light as possible. The Top Cap hovers too but not as easily as the knife. The TopCap is a bit snappier in tumbling maneuvers and a little crisper in spins etc. I usually add the leading edge vortex/stall strips for better aerobatics. Haven't flown the SuDo but have seen some fly and they are good fliers. Just pick one and start somehwere. Good Luck_bob

Default They're all great!

I love my Sudokhoi (Kit) with JR radio and OS 46FX power. I have a knife on order. There are some great threads on the Sledge right here in the Fun Fly forum. I don't think you could go wrong any way you go.

Well, I love my Morris GeeWhizBee but I am starting to like the Sudokhoi a lot. I got one from Gator in a trade, and flew it yesterday on a 46FX with tower muffler. Easiest plane I have ever tried to tork roll.
I flew it a couple of times until the elevator stab broke in flight. It did not fly as good with only one elevator half as the pro twister did here in Houston, and went in. Fortunately just the landing gear broke. No problem. Will use another gear I have, and the elevator should be fixed in no time.
The Sudokhoi is now my official beater plane. I don't think it will survive very long LOL But once it goes in, I will put my Sudokhoi ARF together and keep flying a Sudo.

One reason Gary's twister flew with half a stab gone is that it has dual pushrods going to the elevator due to a mishap where the torque stick broke so the elevator halves were seperated. If you have a typical plane where the pushrod is on one side if the wrong side breaks you are screwed
