So how did the NGH engine go, Brace? Mine is in a 60 size Boomerang but not flown yet, cannot seem to get rid of the air in the carb to engine line in spite of doing all the mods suggested in this forum. just bite the bullet and fly it, s'pose!!

so how is everyone's stick going? I fly mine nearly every trip out and have now fitted an OS .55AX engine and a bigger fuel tank 480cc i now get 19 minutes of jaw busting thrashing of this plane. It is an amazing plane. i can go flat out and push both Tx sticks to the top/middle and it spins like mad cat on fire flys hands off as smooth as can be, inverted is a breeze, vertical is unlimited, handles the wind with ease, will hover and it lands so good every time, i just love this plane

only faults i have had, is my wild flying has broke 3 of the CA hinges 2 on the aileron and one on the elevator and the covering is shite!

I just can't believe the punishment this plane takes!

i have enjoyed this stick design so much i have decided my entry into a gas plane (this glow stuff is costing way too much ) will be to build my own (from plans) 80" Big Stick and i am fitting it out with one of the new Evolution 33cc Gas Engine

hoping this will give me the "Everyday Work Horse" fun plane i want

anyway as said how are the resat of you finding your VQ Stick 1500?

cheers chuck

Love the 1500 run it on Electric, also went to the G-Stick on electric no where near as wild as the 1500 but still performs. Tend to fall back to the 1500... I can leave it assembled and just fly.

G-Stick is VQA061B B=Blue R=Red around $200 depends on your LHS if like me you haven't got the time to build

My Stick with the G46 670kv is still going strong, it has become my anytime plane, unlimited vertical yet it can be slowed down on landing to the point of touching tail wheel first.

This is one awesome aircraft, I have spare nib anyway.

I hear you chuck, mine is getting a little rough after countless hours of fun, fortunately I have spare nib. Which I am going to get ready soon.

Wow these planes go out of stock within hours of arriving.

Hi Guys, I got this plane to put in there a very old but still working & reliable OS 40FP, I took note of all the tweaks I need to do specially in the main landing gear, but also I noted the CG in this plane is way tail heavy, any suggestions where to put the receiver battery? Mine is a 2S lipo turnigy nanotech.

Thanks

Hi Larry
I solved the problem with the soft undercarriage by using one of these //www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=5578&aff=3664 no problems since. How tail heavy is it, mine has a 300gram electric motor up front and balances at 50% of main chord without the 400gram battery. Maybe if you use some stand offs you could extend your motor forward.
