I learned to fly on a Parkzone Stryker and have enjoyed a variety of fast and varied models since. A friend of mine recently rewound one of my burnt out outrunners (donít ask) and, looking around for something to put it in, I realised I had run out of models. Feeling that I had missed out a bit on the slow side of flying I decided to get a GWS Slow Stick. They are cheap as chips and quite versatile, being good indoor flyers and able to take a bit of wind outside. First job was to tweak up the performance a bit with the addition of some full wing ailerons and a strengthened wing. Then I added some light strings and wing tip lights for night flying and, just recently, built the excellent auto gyro accessory kit from slow-g.com: http://www.slow-g.com/
There are some more pics and vids in the customer gallery on the site.
In a secondary posting here there are some pics of some strange light effects I stumbled upon mucking around trying to take a night shot - also, some pics of mods others have made to their Slow Sticks.
