Replaces the PicoStick?
Must be one of the few planes introduced in 2013 that is still viable using a cheapo brushed motor... Assuming brushed motor & ESC is still less $ than brushless... :popcorn:

I'd guess the brushed power version must be an option only. There have been many cheap combos of brushless outrunner + 18A ESC available on markets.

I just ordered one from the LHS and it is being shiped to them now. I should have it by the end of the week. I looks like it comes with the motor

I also have seen it online at BP, Tower Hobbies, and Advantage Hobby

Ordered two micro slow sticks from advantage hobby, received them this past Saturday. They come with a brushed 150 geared motor. No other choice. There is a square 10 mm adapter with down thrust that is glued into the 6mm stick. Have a blue wonder brushless motor with a 10mm stick mount. A 10 esc and two 5 grams servos for it. A 250 motor and 10mm stick mount would provide plenty of power for it. Goes together just like the big slow stick. Cost me $24.09 each from Advantage Hobby. Use the brushed motor for a paper weight.

For a 26" span plane, isn't 7.4 oz - 8.1oz a bit on the heavy side?

#8 little nail Jan 29, 2013 01:56 PM

Rob P, You are right, it is heavy. Should weigh about 6oz. The weight they specify is with the brushed motor and gearbox which weighs 2oz. without a prop. A brushless 250 motor weighs between .6oz and 3/4oz. My blue wonder which is way too much power weighs 1oz.

Couldn't see them on http://www.gwsus.com/english/service...ane_manual.htm
Just wondering what the packaging size is...:confused:

#10 little nail Feb 02, 2013 10:21 AM

Package size SAE is length 25" width 7.5" heigth 3.5". Directions, you don't need no stinkin directions, they are in Chinglish. Pictures are pretty good. It builds just like the big slow stick. Assembled without any gear is just a little over 2 oz.

Got the kit the other day. Got it put together with bluebird servos installed. Need to make a motor mount for it. Plan on running a 250 size brushless motor.... and a 9 amp speed controller...probably run some 400MAH 2 cells, or in that neighborhood. We'll see. I already have the little eflite 2200KV 250...got it when they first came out and haven't had the chance to install it on anything yet. I think it would fly it.

My son picked one up at the Arizona electric festival last week. He got it together and test flew it today. What a cool little model. We cadded up a motor mount and cut it out on the laser from 3/32 ply. He mounted a Hacker A10-9l which is beyond to much power. He's running a 2 cell 320 battery and a 8x3.8 prop. Well worth picking up this little guy. I might have to get one for myself now.

conceptmachining, If the bearing diameter on your 250 is 6mm, Headsup rc sells a stickmount that would fit it. I have a blue wonder on mine, has an 8mm bearing. He has them also, but no more blue wonder motors. Mine weighs 7oz with and 800ma 2 cell lipo. Has enough power with the blue wonder to fly straight up out of my hand.

little nail,

Hey, thanks for the info on that motor mount. I used the supplied mount that has the little 6MM rod sticking out. Then got a little round piece of plastic and drilled a 6MM hole completely thru it. Then just pushed it on the GWS mount and hit it with some CA, and then mounted some set screws on the side for my motor, and one set screw thru the CF GWS frame. Works pretty slick, and the GWS mount already has the down and right angle in it already. I plan on using the 250 2200KV motor, and batteries from my Blade 130X I think they are 300MAH 2 cells. Should be fairly light...and pretty much just a slow sport flyer.

#15 little nail Feb 03, 2013 03:38 PM

conceptmachining, sounds like a good match, should come in under 6oz. I use that motor on a eflite jenney which weights about 8.5oz and flys very scale. If it ever gets warm enough around here and wind quits blowing will give it a try.
