    YES! Saw this earlier !

    All I can say is....... what took so long?

    I have the original 120 Ultra and this one's a bit larger but the same weight. Nice colors too.

    Hope this one's as good as the old ones!

    Super, I sold mine many years ago. So much fun when using the crow for speed brakes.

    This will be my replacement

    Looking forward to getting this new revised plane from H9. I've had a H9 Twist 150 for many years until a tree branch reached out and grabbed for no reason during our new years day fun fly. I was kind of heart broken, it's like losing a best friend. I'm thinking about putting a DLE twin 40 on this one with 20 x 8 prop. Any thoughts?

    A friend has a VVRC 40 twin on a Giant Big Stick and it's a real beast (in a good way). The GBS is a heavy plane, much more so than my US 120, You will be overpowered a little in my opinion, but in a good way
    I say go for it!

    Always better to be overpowered for sure

    DA 50 way heavy and would be no fun, a DLE 35 ra or 30 twin would be the max. do anything you could ask for and not be a brick on a dead-stick! Just my opinion.

    Would you say a DA-35 would be the ticket?

    The 35 sounds good. Should be similar to the DLE. I have tried some engines that were way to large on various planes, usually it was no fun, a lot of work to fly and a dead-stick was disaster, it's not the power it's the weight.

    Hi Guys,
    I already pre ordered one from Horizon Hobbies. I will be powering the model with a VVRC twin cylinder 40cc gas engine and one sweet vibration free engine. I have no idea when it will arrive...but I can't wait to put it together. I am a part of the Stick Brotherhood...so you Ugly Stick guys...join up and I will do my build on the Ugly Stick brotherhood.

    I've built and flown these ugly sticks for over 35 years...just love their predicability in the air...and easy to land.

    Soft Landings Always,

    The latest I've heard (from the company) is late this week or early next week.

    Got mine last week. Just finished wings (delayed start due to Perry, GA swap meet.) Going to put a Turnigy 32 on it. Have several of these and they run just fine.

    Maiden voyage this morning went very well. Plenty of power and with only one tankful of fuel thru the engine for break-in it runs surprisingly smooth. I used an 18-8 wood prop and I think it wants something bigger. Will see how a 19-8 works but may have to go back to the 18 if ground clearance is an issue. Had flight controls toned down pretty significantly which wasn't necessary. Moved back to more throw on the ailerons and things got better. Thing very stable inflight and a dream to land which I've done without flaps so far.

    Because the gas engine I guessed to be heavier than whatever they suggested I opted to locate the two elevator servos in the aft cutouts just forward of the horizontal stab. Turned out to be a mistake and I should have used the forward cutouts internally in the fuselage as it took 1/2 lb of lead on the firewall to get it balanced even with both batteries located as far forward as physically possible.
