I just can't believe it's taken me over 25 years to finally get one. I flew my Big Stik 60 again yesterday and really can't say enough good about it. I'm upgrading it from the 80 to a 91 4 stroke so we'll see what it's like with a bit more power.

I agree, no bashing. It took me 25 years just to decide I'd like one, always thought they'd be too fast for my taste. Try one Zor, you'll love it! There is a couple every week on Ebay, Chinese ARFs for sure but a good way to have some fun.

I think that what defines a stik are not the general proportions or some specific aerodinamics , but rather having, along with the basic simplicity of a boxy, squared design, the added character of a ww1 german plane look alike, that is what makes everybody recognise it at a glance.
For istance, the german plane video with the 3 cyl engine, is a basic simple plane, but not a stik
IMHO

Really? We're going to reinvent the wheel here? Are we really going to go down the road as to what the definition of "is" is?

The link that latinRClover gave us in post #41 said it all. Simple - all one has to do is read it - case-closed. Bringing the horse to the water, so to speak. Toysareforkids brings some exerts to this thread from the link in post #41. So now, the water has been brought to the horse...

The theme of the post is: "Lets see your Stik Planes Dead or Alive". S-T-I-K - Stik. I know that our spell checkers automatically correct s-t-i-k into s-t-i-c-k. In the heat of typing we don't catch it. No big deal. As a matter of fact, when the Stik was still in production, there were several "Stick" kits on the market, including the 'c' in the name to stay away from Copyright infringement. again, no big deal.

The "Stik" has made it into the glossary of generic R/C terms just like the term "Cub". There are many, many models that are Cub-like, but not Piper J-3 (et al) Cubs. Relax, that's okay. Modeled after the original Das Ugly Stik, tons of Stik-like plans, kits, and Arfs have spawned from this design, some following the round vertical stab/rudder and scalloped ailerons, and some not. When I first saw the Quickie 500, I thought "Stik on steroids". And as the saying goes, "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." Nuff said.

Now, can we get back to enjoying this time-proven and fun design?

agreed. I believe the question has been answered more than thoroughly both directly and indirectly.

there have been, are now, and will continue to be MANY off-shoots and re-imaginings of the "Stik" theme. my U-Can-Do is one of them. I think there is no real concrete definition of a "Stik" or "Stick" type plane, and what qualifies as a stick or not a stick is rather nebulous and open to interpretation. which is the general idea that has been expressed here.

im sure the "what defines a stick" posts are not directly meant to be troublesome, though they are rather tangent to the discussion at hand. I think some people find that kind of redirection - when the solution to the question is obvious - to be trolling or even overtly quarrelsome when the question is re-asked with pictures of an object that is clearly nowhere close to being similar to any of the airplanes or designs being discussed. which is understandable i guess.

I don't, as i simply ignore posts that aren't relevant to what I am interested in reading about or discussing (no offense Zor.) Though I think there are others that don't find that so easy to do.

Yeah the Uproar is a lot like a stik but it's not. Love those giant Stiks by the way!

Don't have any pics of my Glow Stiks - all have met their demise long ago. Das Ugly, Sweet-n-Low, and Canard Stik. However - have a NIB Canard Stik that will be my winter project.

Here are my modified Slow Stiks - I think they qualify even though this is a fuel forum. They definately are made in the same vein as the original Stiks. If you look closely - you can see these are from the dark ages - no brushless and NiMH batteries.
