Default 50cc Stick ARF?

Is there such a thing as a Stick style ARF that can handle a 50cc engine? If so please advise.

Thanks

Yeah, that is a pretty good source. Personally, I have a Great Planes Giant Stik flying for years now with a 50cc twin I built, and it does great. Before I put the 50cc twin on it, I flew it for about a year with a Poulan 42cc on it. Other than those two options, if you want to build a kit, here is another source: http://www.amr-rc.com/products-brand...assembled/amr/

Good luck with your project whatever you decide,

------------------------
there is one more option from Pilot-RC:
Please, take a look at this post:
http://www.flyinggiants.com/forums/s...postcount=1020

It is 90" wingspan plane capable to handle 20cc to 50cc engine.
it is ~5kg heavy w/o floats and ~8+ kg with floats flying by 40cc gas engine.
the only thing ... I did front plane reinforcement with additional plywood panels and foam type glue.
it has very good airfoil for super slow flying capability.
Initially I was using it as a "stand" for my 40cc engine setup and brake in period, but later realize that plane is very capable to be loaded by over 3 kg floats and be a very good float plane flyer.
I am also using it on tires for high altitude aerial photography with 0.7 kg camera.

Thanks. I'm concerned if it can handle a 50cc for sport flying.
