OK, a friend of a friend had some "rc plane" gathering dust in the attic and asked me if I wanted to take it, because it was probably going to end up in the garbage....
Well, I couldn't resist, so I went and stopped by and was given this..... an unflown, assembled Hangar 9 Ultra Stick! It also included a Thunder Tiger 40 engine, receiver and most importantly...5 servos.
The tail surfaces were broken off, but a little 5 minute epoxy and TLC and now this bird is ready.
I am selling all the gasser stuff and going to electrify the bird. I normally fly much smaller, faster planes, but hey, this should be a fun project and it looks like these Ultra Sticks are fully aerobatic.
I have already ordered a big Suppo outrunner for her as well as a Suppo 70 amp ESC from Light Flight RC. Great service from Light Flight RC and GREAT prices....free shipping on $75.00 or more orders.
