Hi Webdragon,

The SS is not discontinued. Please visit www.caliberhobby.com or contact kuan@gwsus.com if you could not find out from your sources.

Hi Steve,

The old prop is broken now, so suggest making its hub broken, then you could get it off totally.
Applying a pliers on it can be very helpful for this job.

Where to find a SlowStick


I can't find any place online with the Slow Stick, used google, etc. Caliber is out. If they have not been discontinued, why aren't they available? Even Tower Hobbies shows them as discontinued, which really means they cannot get any.
Thanx,
Rod

See the post by GorillaBob on Jan 26, 2017, 01:44 PM:

"If you haven't noticed, the Slow Stick is getting hard to find in the US. I talked with GWS USA, trying to order more stock and he told me that they will probably not be getting more Slow Sticks. He said that they don't make enough off of the Stick to keep importing them. Needless to say, I have less than 2 cases left of them and they didn't have more for me to order. I hope he is wrong because we love this bird. Keep em flying and post some more photos!!"

Unfortunately, it appears that www.gorillabobsrc.com is out of stock of Slow Sticks as of April 24, 2017.

I wanted some Slow Sticks for a couple of kids starting out. Tried www.caliberhobby.com or contact kuan@gwsus.com. No reply.

I saw the writing on the wall a couple years ago and stocked up on the wing and tailplane kits, but still holding out on hope that they will be available again sometime down the line.

It seems the micros are unavailable too.
