GWS Pico StickF 3D conversion.


Ok people its been awhile for me to build GWS plane but I was asked to convert a GWS pico Stick F into a fully 4 channel 3D type plane, I'm not going to modify the fuselage at all but build a set of wing that can be put on when you are looking to take your flying to the next level.

I will post a complete build thread here as I go so.

I will list all parts used so you can keep track of the items used.

Stay tunned ofr more information in the coming weeks.

I will be upgrading the plane using a brushless bluewonder type motor 1300kv type I will also include links to all the vendors of the hardware that I use so people can see cost and equipment used in the build, I hope to get this project started by this weekend I will start the parts list tonight.

Hi Tallflyer,

I'd like to suggest adding more reinforcements on its wing as you probably have to fly a heavier Pico Stick with more powerful brushless motor for doing AP in winds.

More Pictures


Here are some more pictures

The plane with my setup came in at 6.1 oz

should be a good power to weight ratio.

Nice Job, I love the paint scheme.

One suggestion on the power plant. If you find that the Blue Wonder doesn't provide the thrust your looking for I have had great success using the GWS 2205/15 motor and an 8040 prop. It will really get up an go on on a 2S lipo and is only 2 grams heavier than your current motor but will provide 4 more ounces of thrust.

Just a thought, John...
