If you have any questions or need help I am more than happy to assist in any way I can.
Click, did I ever ask you if your Stagger Bee is electric, and if so, what motor/prop/power configuration you're using? (I rescanned the first 12 pages of this thread and didn't see it, and finally decided I'd just ask again, if I did the first time.)

I love that this thread exists! I have quite the hive already (Stagger Bee, Speedy Bee, 60" Big Bee, Yard Bee and a Lady Bug) but I think I am going to try to do a 40" bee next. I also cut out the profiles and ribs for a Micro Bee last night, I'm making it a little larger at 12" length and 12" W.S.
I've never had one of these I don't like; now I just want something a little smaller than the 60" Bee so it can fit in my Camaro. I used to move the planes around with my El Camino and it had tons of room.

Jess, what are you powering your Stagger Bee with?

Stagger Bee Power.

I used a geared Astro 05 in mine, running on 8 1700mAh nicads. I am guessing it was a 12x6 APC, but don't remember that for sure. Yeah, it was heavy but did fly fine. The sink rate as I turned based to final was pretty impressive, but getting back on the power once I leveled the wings controlled it nicely.

You really don't want a 12" prop, to little ground clearence, I used a brushless motor with a 10" prop and lipo batteries.

Nope, not yet. Just about done the 'bones' stage, then sanding and finishing. But to answer your question, I hear that they can be mild or wild.

With low control throws and not too much power they're pretty easy to fly. I wouldn't recommend one for a first plane but if you've done some flying you should be fine.

Then you can increase the control throws and they get REALLY interesting .

RCZorro - the 40 is definately flyable as mentioned above, adding an extra rib would get you a 48 inch wing which is a bit floatier (is that a word?).
