and here is my micro slow stick in action:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/20929955@N03/9859051144/

bought the kit at Hobby Town , but as I did not have a brushed ESC ,
I built it using material I had on hand:
a Turnigy Park 300 motor 1050Kv 75W,
30A ESC,
800mAh 3S 20C LiPo.
2x 9g microservos
Propeller: 8x4 SF.

Had to reinforce the wings, as they folded up on me...(grin)

It is great to get into RC with this nice micro slow stick.
At least for me, dead calm weather is needed.

I thought I'd update this thread with my brilliant micro stick.

When I purchased this micro stick, instantly I thought that the motor was too heavy for the plane so I upgraded the motor to a brushless setup. The plane is now a lot lighter, glides well and catches thermals easily keeping it up for really long flight times. Best of all I can take off and land in my backyard.

My setup:

- Turnigy Park250 (fitted on with a Tamiya female battery connector just by heating and pressing it on)
- GWS 6x5 prop
- 10A ESC
- OrangeRX
- Turnigy Nano 460mah 2s/Zippy 500mah 2s
- Hobby King servos

I have bought six of these kits online over the past year and a half, and three out of the six arrived with minor wing damage from the carry handle protruding inside the box making contact with the wing during shipment.

If I could offer a suggestion to GWS, it would entail the consideration of excluding the carry handle altogether on future production runs. I must say, the carry handles on my E-flite micro models are convenient as the the box serves as storage and transport for the model. Also, those micro model boxes have molded foam packing between the carry handle and the models themselves, eliminating any chance of damage to the models.

However, once the Micro Slow Stick is assembled, it no longer resides within the box in which it's shipped. So from my perspective, the carry handle is more of a cosmetic liability than a convenience.

Anyway, I still enjoy flying these little birds in the backyard. Good, clean fun

2200kv, I purchased a 2050 also however it hasn't arrived yet. The plane flies very well, with the original 8x6 prop it wants to climb vertically however on the smaller one it is fairly good. To concur the steep climb I mixed in elevator on throttle, I do agree it needs a little down trust if the elevator isn't mixed in.

Threw mine together. Flys very, very nice on a E-flite Park 300 and 2s 500 lipo. Very sweet. Can be pretty zippy or slow down for touch and go's (once I got the gear bent forward a bit). I've got some video from front of the house flying today I'll put up in a bit. Very nice little "mini" flyer. Bigger than a micro (thank heavens) and fly's much nicer as a result. Perfect for late evening flying.
