    Smile .60 Ultra Stik Fuselage needed

    This is insane.
    I haven't flown in 3 years, (divorce and re-marriage). Haven't touched an X-acto blade or a drop of CA in this time either.
    Today, I'm killing time cruising the forums and stumble upon a fella looking to rebuild an Ultra Stik that was given to him.
    As I read his post, I recalled posting my own thread on this airplane 5 or so years back. I looked that post up in archives
    thinking I could give this fella a leg up on his challenge.
    I read my entire thread and suddenly realized, I MISS FLYING THIS AIRPLANE! I mean, REALLY...
    I have 2 wings, (one with and one w/o flaps) and tail surfaces sitting in a corner in the basement. All I'd need is a FUSELAGE...
    or at least a partial one cause I'm fairly good at rebuilding, (yeah, I'm THAT kinda pilot, lol)
    So, since I have no templates or plans, I'm puttin' this out to y'all

    Thanks!

    Ah yes, snakes in the cockpit....

    Here's what I have drawn up. It is not complete as far as the wing, but the fuse and tail feathers are done. This is to scale and in Vector format. It can be laser cut or cnc cut. Hope this helps?

    AWESOME job! I'm envious of your talent. I'm a scratch builder at heart and truly appreciate quality plans. Yours are top notch.
    Thank you very much. These are EXACTLY what I need. I'll be way interested in your final wing plans as well.
    One of the things I truly admire about this site is all the great people wanting to lend a hand to those in need. KUDOS.

    I don't have access to laser or CNC so I'll be cutting these by hand. As clean and precise as they are, it will be a SNAP!

    Thank you once more!

    Regards,
    Don

    Hey, if you decide to do the wing as well, I'll be on my way to my first "plans-build."

    Don't plan on that happening anytime soon. It is not on my priority list at all. The second page shows half of a wing rib placement. The fuse page has the rib profile, so I would think anyone with some basic kit building skills should be able to make a wing from what is drawn? Just need to add, the wingtip design of your choice, make the ailerons and or aileron/flap combo.

    Haven't built a kit in 50 years but I can probably figure out how to set up ailerons and flaps from some of my ARF's.

    I know what you mean. The ultra stick 60 is also one of my favorites. So much so, I have had 2. I have an Ultra Stick Lite sporting a G26 hanging the garage. I just finished a complete refurbish this Summer. Once the weather improves, it will be ready to put back in the air. I wish they were still available.
    Will add something clever and witty if I ever come up with something.

    Here is the Original Ugly Stik wing for reference. It's not the same but will give you an idea.

    I took the CAD fuselage plan to STAPLES. Had it enlarged and it turned out PERFECT.

    Even though the plans show laser-cut templates, I simply drew straight over those for "standard" balsa wood cutting on a band saw.

    My original wing fits the saddle like a glove and hope to have my Stick back in the air this Spring...

    Thank you!

    I had a Midwest Sweet Stik 30 years ago, great airplane! I stuck a first generation OS Wankel rotary on it. The engine ran great but bled fuel like you had opened an artery!
