Default My favorite fun fly

I built a Morris Giant Su-Do-Khoi a few years ago and it was my favorite fun-fly ever. I may build another. Flew it for a couple hundred flights I guess before losing it to a mid-air.

It takes a while to build - perhaps 100-200 hours? The fuse is like a truss (they call it a egg-crate design). there are lots of pieces. the wing is typical d-tube but with in internal cardboard tube to accept the dowel joiner. Each wing removes from the fuselage for transport.

I flew mine with a Moki 180 (2C glow engine). this has relatively good power to weight. you could also use a gas engine, but I think it will end up a little heavier. The plane hovers well, flat spins, flies low and slow. handles well in the wind.

I also had a similar plane from aeroworks - the extra 300L profile fun fly. i liked the su-do-khoi better.

I have the instruction manual in DOC format. send me your email address and I will send it to you. I also have the DF file of the plans. If you can read DXF file (you will need a CAD program like autocad), I can send this to you also. [email protected]

Killer 3D model with a 2.6 gasser. You can hover/torque roll this sucker all over the runway and then some...

We tried many engine combos with this beast without a doubt the 2.6 gasser was king...

Make sure you inventory the material supplied. Mine kit had lots of errors. Morris made good on them but it was a real pain. It's not a fast build but I didn't find any special difficulties.
You can see some pics of mine at

FlyHard,

Very nice, I would love to see one fly. Anyone have any video of a giant funfly in action? Please post a link to it, thanks.

I was thinking of scratch building this plane..... just getting the ribs laser cut or something.... The plans are pretty straight forward... Instructions are okay.... I spent a hour friday reading thru the Instructions Dave sent me... What do you think about the Zenoah G 38 in this thing? I'd really like to get into gas....
