I downloaded the plans from a thread in RCGroups.
I'll post a link

Very nice plans, I shall say. Only 5 pages and simple construction. As soon as I buy a 010 TeeDee or 020 PeeWee, I'm going to build one.

I just finished mine and plan to maiden it tomorrow if the wind calms down. I went electric and landing gear so mine is heavier than most but it is over powered so I am not too concerned with a little extra weight. It is a really fun scratch build and very easy. Good Luck.

A Graupner Speed-400 run fine on a 5X5 prop direct drive but might be too much for a LaStick which is really intended for .020 glow power. I flew mine with a Cannon G-Mark .030 initially but it now fly with a 10 grams outrunner from HK+5X3 prop(plenty of power)mine is 4 channels with no dihedral:)

What does 5x5 mean in proppelers

#13 coriolan Jan 26, 2013 03:35 PM

5"X5" = 125mm Dia.X125mm pitch, will load a speed-400 at about 10A at 7.2<8.4Volts, they used to be run with 6/7 cells Nicad before brushless and Lipos made it obsolete. There is very few brushed esc still being made, ditto for Nicad and brushed motors!

What speed is a 6a speed controller with a 7.2v battery

Can I fly the la stick with a 6a speed controller and a 7.2v battery

A 6 Amps esc might be Ok with a Speed-280, but a Speed-400 or Speed-300 requires a 10 Amps esc minimum. GWS might still have some brushed esc in that range,or BlueArrow from HK or BP-Hobbies:

Might be less hassle and cheaper to just go brushless with Lipo!
