BiStick (Extreme Slow Stick Upgrade)

This is a really good aerobatic plane. Easy to build and fits together with an egg crate design using no CF and very little glue. Nice looking plane that will get attention where ever you fly.

Looks cool. I don't have MS Word.

Can you save it to WordPad .doc or a PDF?

Looks Great! Definitely something for me to try in the not too distant future.

Are there any vids of it in action?

It's funny - we still call these planes "Slow Sticks" when there is often not a original part left on them.

Looks like something I would like to build.
What did you use for motor ESC and battery.
What is the weight, eh?

Does "upgrade" mean that the fuse' motor and all are the same as a SS, Maybe?

Thanks,
Walt

The fuselage is the SS fuselage, wheels, wing mounts etc. The motor is larger than I had on my SS.

A friend ask me to design a plane that had the "pitts" look and would knife edge(not done with a stick model because of no fuse) however, this model will do a loop while in a knife edge. Wish I had some vid's to show you.

I enjoy the designing. I hope you enjoy building yourself one and if I can be of any help, let me know. If you build your own BiStick, Please post a picture of your plane when you get it finished.

Here is some photo's of the under side of the wing. I glued a 4" wide 3/16 thick balsa wood to the wing and put a 1/4" block at the trailing edge to bring the wing up parallel with the stick. I also glued a thin (1/32") plywood at the leading and trailing edge that's even with the top of the wing so the rubber bands would not cut into the foam.

This motor works great with a 30A ESC
The more power the better control doing aerobatics

"Upgrade" may be the wrong word. I should have said "built on a Slow Stick frame."

Upgraded, re-engineered, or borrowed from Peter to pay Paul, doesn't matter. You have done some wonderful work in the design of that plane! The flight video was very nice, I seem to doubt WOT <wide open throttle> is needed very often with all that power.

Can you give the information around the Fuse tube, say someone wanted to build one but didnt have the Slow Stick for parts? Lengths, diameters, materials. Do you hapen to know what the weight is over all?

Bravo on the build!

Thanks Ron for the kind remarks,
I have many other designs I want to put on the net, so keep watching.

I bought the SS parts here....

http://www.allerc.com/index.php?cPat...t_order&page=3

You can buy just the parts and not the entire kit. Better and cheaper than trying to manufacture all these parts. Also you can buy an entire kit from Tower Hobbies for $22.00.

I don't have a plane but maybe I can get my friend to bring his over so I can weigh it. My guess is somewhere around 15oz??

At that price...why re-invent the wheel? No worries about the weight, just curious if you do come across it. I seem to build more then I fly, I can understand your preference to building and I look forward to what you got to show.

I took the plans that were on the site to Office Max and Kinkos, but couldn't get them blown up to scale ( 960% ) as drawn. Can someone tile a .pdf or something? I really want to build this 'Slow Stick Perversion' but can't seem to get the prints.....

I used a projector on the wall. I moved it forward or back until I got the right measurements. A tiled plan would be great. I don't know how to do that.

Check out this new model!
