Help!
Info needed on Littlest Stik

A fellow club member wants to convert this plane to electric. I'm having very little luck in finding any specs on this model. All I've been able to find is a couple U Tube videos and that it is a Fred Reese design kitted by Ace RC back when Ace kitted real model planes. I have not been able to locate any specs on this plane nor if any body has converted it to electric.
So if anybody has some info and what they're using as far as electric power let me know.
Thanks.

Electrified Littlest Stik

I have a Littlest Stik that had a Cox PeeWee .020 on it for years. Last year I went to the "dark Side" and electrified it: Turnigy 2830-1000 motor, GWS 6-3 prop, Zippy 2S/350 LiPo, Turnigy "Plush" 10A ESC. All-up weight is under 6 oz. Rudder and elevator - it's a blast!

Did mine with ailerons and elevator. GWS 50XS motor and 450 2 cell lipo. It is a hoot to fly in the back yard. Send me a pm if you are interested in a kit.

Good info. I've got a Littlest Stick with an .020 PeeWee and external tank. Am now converting to modern digital from Ace Pulse with Adams Actuator. I think adding a 3rd channel and electric is the way to go.

Nice one, Curare! I have some sweet flying electrics but my L Stik will always remain slimey to retain it's old school charm. Starts easily and flies fantastic with it's TD .020.

Magic is in the eyes of the beholder. I consider the newer technologies as colourizing films. Some say by colourizing, the films lose their charm. Nay, rather I say that they have been improved.

Here's mine.
Alpha 250 motor
10 amp esc
2 cell 450mah lipo
6x3 prop might be 6x4?
Went ahead and built two. Already cutting out parts. Only finished one.
Second wing has more area.
Fun to fly.
