Here are my two. AMR Stick 85 with a DLE111. AMR Twin Stick with twin DLE 55's. Both are regular fliers. If you want to build a stick then AMR is the only place to go. Easy build and fly great.

Hard to beat a Stik for a tough fun flyer. Everybody should have at least one in their hanger.

I installed a friends brand new OS 55AX and a 12-6 APC to my GP Big Stick 40 for break in. WOW!! I could barely hover it at 95% throttle with my OS 46 w\12-4. The 55 will hover it with ease at only 50% throttle and accelerate straight up. I may not give it back. I think he should use my 46 on his SIG Somthin' Extra until his skills catch up. Whatcha think?

Default GP Giant Big Stik

A few pictures of my 'new' to me, GP. Big Stik. Bought it used, it had not been crashed, but it needed a lots of work. I actually flew it the first time for a friend with an O.S. 160 on it and it was OK. But when I purchased it I wanted a gas motor.
After reading many post on these monsters I learned that a DLE 30 would be sufficient for power. I am familiar with this motor, as I have the same motor on a Goldberg Sukhoi, pictured elsewhere in another post on Goldberg models.

First was to do something about the tail wheel mount. I used a Dubro large bracket and ran the tail wheel shaft all the way up to the fin. I use this mount on all my planes and it works very good. Next and the biggest problem was to move the motor forward to prevent having to add so much weight as ballast. Typical short nose long tail plane. But if you look at the spec's is was built around the Fuji 32 which is a very heavy motor, like 10 oz's more that a DLE 30. I wound up moving motor ahead about 1 1/2" . Along with two 6v. batteries under the fuel tank I think I only had to add about 3-5 oz's. to the nose but that was better than the solid one pound with the 160.
Then the nose and the wheel pants changed the entire looks of the plane. The best part of it is that since it is such a long, nose to tail, plane it really flies great. Big wings help too. Ready to fly it checks out at 14 lb's. But the DLE 30 does not know it as it pulls it vertical as long as you want it to go in that direction.
Sorry about the upside down pict. I could not find a way to remove it.

You don't often see a Stik with a cowl. Looks nice!

A Stik with a nose. A couple of years ago I built a 120 Texas RC Drastik with a OS 160 in it.
And before that I had built a Ultra Stick with a nose. It changes the entire appearance of the plane...
But the Drastik was a real bear, lot of power, it flew well. But not as good as this GP Big Giant Stik.

I'm glad to see that someone started a Stik Brotherhood! When I first started flying, my friends had stiks of different types. At first, I thought they were ugly and I didn't want nothing to do with them. As time passed they grew on me and I haven't looked back since! Over the years I've owned and built several.

1. Midwest Little Stik
2. 2 Midwest Sweet Stiks
3. 3 Hangar 9 Ultra Stik 40's
4. GP Big Stik 40 (kit built)
5. GP Big Stik 40 ARF
6. GP BIG Stik 60 ARF
7. Hanger 9 Ultra Stik 120
8. 2 Mini Ultra Stik's

I would like to build an electric stick from plans for a power 25 motor. What size stick would work with this motor?

Hi smkrcflyer,
The plans for the Midwest das little stick .20 would work good for that. You could lighten it up in a few places to help keep the weight down and it would work just fine.

Good Luck!

smkrcflyer, you can go to www.outerzone.co.uk
They have the plan your looking for. Do a search for "Das Little Stick". You can download the plans and take them to like a Kinko's to have them printed.
Enjoy and happy flying

I love STIKS!! I've learned on several 40 sized on brushless, and I absolutely love my Giant Stik. All my stiks have come from Value Hobby, can't beat the quality for the price and they fly very well. LOVE LOVE LOVE these planes!!

This was from yesterday, wind was kickin' and I was lovin' it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jD06_66aGG4 This video is from a while ago, I need to make a new video of it soon. She flies even better now!

I just found this thread. Please count me in. I had a Midwest Super Sweet Stick as my second plane back in the 80's and loved it. After I got back into the hobby in the lat 90's, I've had several sticks. H9 Super Stick, Ultra Stick 120, multiple Ultra Stick 60's, GP Big Stick 60, and currently I have an Ultra Stick 120 Lite I purchased used that I am converting to a low wing.
I love sticks and will always have one.
I have a question that someone may be able to answer. I have plans from RCM that Jim Feldman drew for the LW (low wing) conversion article years ago. He listed Stan's Fibertech for the cowl, wheel pants and canopy. When Stan sold the business and retired, the new owners say they didn't get these molds and do not know who has them. Does anyone know where I could find them or if they even still exist? I really like the way they make the plane look and would like to reproduce it if possible. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Rick
