Micro Stick Wing Used. Tested Today.

Tom, The wing used came from a single wing Micro Stick. It has 146 sq. inches area. The biplane will be available in a couple of weeks per James and I do not know how big that wing is in area. At the park today, the SSX took off and climbed out nose up with the added area up front and the new lift. The 2100 battery took it straight up toward the moon with it's lower resistance and generous current output. A Thunderbird 18 is being used and it was taking 15 amps with the 1320 battery. The new static current will be measured soon. The Stick was landed and the reflex on the aileron was changed back to neutral. It now flies level at full throttle. The big surprise was that it performs even better with the added weight and will fly longer. This is really a fun model and I am glad to have it in the fleet. Charles
