GIANT UGLY STIK
 

Does anyone know anything about the Hobby Lobby Giant Ugly Stik vintage 1975 (106 " wingspan 20+lbs ) ? I'm looking for info about it's flight characteristics and engine.
All the smaller stiks fly great.

Any info will be appreciated.

My very first Giant scale back in the mid 80's was a scratch built Giant Stik by Bud Nosen. I modifies the vertical stab and rudder to look more conventional. It had the Fultz dual nose strut and I made the wing out of foam. It weighed 22lbs and was powered by a Kawasaki two stroke. It flew great for years. I hated to sell it, but the scale bug bit me real hard and the plans to a Ziroli Corsair was calling my name. If you find a Hobby Lobby Stik, I would'nt hesitate to build and fly it. I've never seen a bad flying Stik in 27 years of flying RC.

It will be very friendly, and fun. the concept has not been forgotten. There will always be stik's of all sizes.

Hey Barry and others.

My AMR Giant Big Stick will be at BARKS Swap Shop this weekend, and not just to show off.

Never be afraid to build/fly a stick... Best flying planes out there next to the Hots line IMHO....

I used a 45cc on my 96" ugly stick. Here's the thread link.
