With Goldberg's chippy coming in at $89.99 ARF and a kit would be around $75.00 - I just don't see much use. Of course, I'll eventually get around to doing some of them just for me. What we really need is a kit built Yak-54 to suit the current trend.

I got to see the Mini Ultra Stick in person at the ihobbyexpo at the L.A. Convention two weeks ago. Very sweet little plane. Nice beefy landing gear (no wire one!) Nice covering job, Servo holes are already pre-cut for optional flaps.You can convert it to a quad flap configuration if you want it. 22-25 oz AUW, 34" length, 38.75" wingspan. I should have taken a picture of it.

Saw this plane today at the JR Indoor event. No need for pictures as it looks just like the bigger ones except for proportionally taller landing gear. It flew in the dome during the Noon time demo - it was really too fast for indoors, but looks to be a good flyer. Appears to be well-built and reasonably light without being too fragile. The only change I would make is to add a tailwheel instead of the plastic skid. If you're a fan of Ultra Sticks (I am), you'll like this plane.

So this is a seperate control surface? Oops... I just thought spoilerons were a computer function on our transmitters that makes both ailerons point up at the same time (and flaperons if they both point down). So is that called something else or does that simply just not work?

Spoilerons are what your thinking they are.. Spoilerons make both ailerons act as spoilers.. To use spoilerons you need the computer function on the computer, as the signal to the servo's is mixed with the tx.. Flaperons sorta makes both ailerons "droop" to act as flaps, but it also lets them move so to still give aileron control.. What your thinking is pretty close..

The crow function sorta uses flaperons and spoilerons - in that the flaps go down and both ailerons go up to create large amounts of drag, which won't allow the airplane to build much airspeed.. You can point an ultra stick right at the ground and it won't build excessive speed.. Lots of fun..


Thomer- Like Kevin said, mine is backordered from Horizon..

Gotcha!

Cad,

You are correct! I used to be a member of the night owl club as of October 2, 2004. Since then, I have said, "I do" to a certain special lady, and we call it a day around 10pm on weeknights and around 11 on weekends. Yah, I miss it, but the benefits of marriage outweigh the club!
