   Trike     

All metal construction, choice of tricycle or conventional gear, power up to 180 hp. and the ability to mount floats makes the Murphy Elite a versatile, affordable two-place aircraft.

The Elite is a Rebel, originally redesigned for the use of tricycle gear. It is now also available with conventional gear. The redesign required a strengthened, heavier fuselage to handle the gear loads. Other design features include a new cantilevered stabilizer, one-piece elevator, all-metal control surfaces, split flaps, and heavier, beefed-up wing attach points and leading edges. All of these changes give the Elite an 1800-lb. gross weight, partially compensating for the heavier empty weight, plus the ability to accommodate engines up to 180 hp.
