Default Full-size Ugly Stick homebuilt aircraft

Someone somewhere built and flew an experimental aircraft based on the RC classic Ugly Stick. I have seen pictures of it,but am unable to find now. Help?

Fokker E (Eindeker)

Have a look at that. I think that is an antique aircraft that the ugly stik could be modeled after?

I always thought the Ugly Stik was modeled after it in a conceptual fashion. I remember the first pictures of an Ugly Stic that I saw as a kid, had a big rounded vertical stab, angular wingtips German Crosses on i's wigs, suggestive of the EIII. I don't know if what I saw was in it's original "Ugly Stik" form, or if it was someone's suggestive rendition.

On one of my three EAA Oshkosh trips (probably 2003 or 2005) I saw a crop duster pilot kind of straddling a fuselage beam with a straight simple wing and tail with traditional surfaces. This was all over in the ultralight field. The "stick" aircraft was hand built and could be construed as an ugly stick of sorts in that the wing came straight out of the "I" beam fuselage. I'm sure it was one of a kind..
