I finished a friends 95" beaver, and test flew it, and test crashed it. We are rebuilding it together. I really don't like the situation, but whatever, it all works out.

I never ask to fly someone else plane for that very reason especially when the crash might be because of a crappy plane or faulty electronics -- but I asked.

If someone ask me to fly their plane I let them know ahead of time I will not be responsible for it especially if it's a maiden. Who knows whats going to happen on a maiden.

At times I let a select few (much better skills then mine) fly my planes but I would never expect them to replace it in a crash unless they were just flying stupid with my plane.

Pics of Stiks? Ok then! But first, a short movie.

Slow Stick Fun (0 min 55 sec)


I love Stiks. I've always had at least one in my hangar. I used to have a Hangar 9 Super Stick 60 but that was a big greasy monster and I sold it a few years ago.

I'm thinking about an E-flite Mini Ultra Stick on 4S. I might swing by Hobby-Lobby tomorrow and grab one. I miss going fast and I've got everything I need except for the plane.

Here are the two I have now. The Mini Stick is a hoot!

Well... for 25 bucks, it's cheap, flimsy in a few areas, the wing could be straighter and it's tail heavy. Fortunately and much like the honey badger, Stick doesn't care. It still flies like a Stick! It's fast, very quiet and flies forever with a 2S 450 mAh pack.

Yea I have one. Its a blast to fly! I had no issues with balance but I mounted the motor on the outside opposite of what was specified so the weight is a little more forward. I changed out the landing gear and gave it some sweet little trexlers to bounce around on. Quality seems decent not too shabby for its size and brand. I nosed it in one time pretty hard in the grass and only broke a prop, no fuse or wing damage at all.

Ooh nice!

Here's that Mini Ultra Stick that I mentioned above. Love it!

E-flite Micro Ultra Stick (2 min 4 sec)


Edit: Oops. I totally did not see that this was in the fuel section until just now. I read the entire thread and saw many Sticks of every kind. Sorry!

New Stik on the Block

Was told it was an ugly stik but the dimensions are the same as my roadrunners. 90 in wing span, installed new 645mgs all around and a SPE 26 mounted. Little cosmetic work and she looks pretty.

Description: does mine count as a stick ? It's funny but I was flying my 30% Edge around and saw these guys at my club chasing each other around racing each other. I wanted to get a stick Plane that would beat them but I think I went a little overboard with the speed. YA THINK . This has a All Stock 40 and my buddies with their OS 55 ax's can't touch me. Their doing about 90 mph and I'm doing 120 mph
