I have heard of the magic needing some attention in the tail area for strength, the topcap needs nothing out of the box. Both are probably a good choice!

Hmmm.

Ill give everyone a guess at what I'd say......

(hint, I'd probably go with the one that doesnt require rubber bands to hold the wing on.)

Top cap, Top cap, Top cap. Both are good quality but I would go with the topcap. Of course this is just my opinion! I have flown the magic and it flew well but for me the morris hobbies planes are hard to beat.

sudokhoi or topcap all the way!! i have a Magic and a sudokhoi ARF the sudo was much easier to put together and when i got my magic RTF i realised i didn't have any stupid rubber bands!!! i havent had to use them for ages!! definetly go for the topcap ARF or the sudokhoi!!! i love my sudo so much fun to fly but i bet the top cap is just as fun if not more!! well good luck in your choice!!

My vote goes to the Top Cap! I think the Morris planes are much easier to hover than the Majic.
I have three different Morris profiles, scratch built by me, but I have flown a sudokohi ARF and it flys the same.
The Majic is also a good flying plane but isn't on par with the profiles for doing lot's of different FF stunts.

The .60 Su-Do-Khoi is even better than the .40 if you can believe that. Since it obviuosly has more weight to it, it makes hovering and 3D stuff really solid.

Ya had to go and say that!!! Okay... I guess my next plane is gonna be a 60 size sudoKhoi... Maybe you could compile a list of "gotcha's" on this plane as you said it was a bear to build. Do you think the 120 is obsenely overpowered?

Default Top Cap vs. Magic???

I have flown both and fail to see, or find the Magic, definitely TOP CAP in a choice between these two. Of course I am prejudice and would go with something all together - HA HA!

Once I had the plane done I talked to Robert over at Morris Hobbies about the kit. He really wants me to re-write the manual for them. I dont know if I want to do that or not at this point.
I did tell them to have anyone who buys that kit to e-mail me or call me and I would go over what I thought was wrong with the kit.

Paul,
If you get one let me know and we can talk.
