Ultra Stick / Q500 Pylon Hybrid ???

Looking for a Plane that's Like a Ultra Stick 40 but one that can Haul but. I never had a Q500 and would be willing to get one but I assume it wouldn't have the Aerobatic Performance of the Ultra stick. There is a guy at my Field that scratch builds A Beautiful Stick that has a thinner wing and is stronger built than the H9 Ultra stick but He's tired of building. Not sure what to do.

Well, TexasRCplanes.com has a series of DraStick planes that work really well, all different sizes too.

But the Q500 types of planes will do aerobatics quite well. But maybe knife edges aren't so good as a plane with a more side area in its fuselage would do though.

Yup, just as long as you don't get goofy and only use one aileron for control. I'd say a Q-500 with conventional tail, or T-tail (more aerodynamic) and slightly larger ailerons with greater throws is what you want. And if you want it to be stick-like, just lop off the wingtips and build up some Stick wing tips.
