I love Stinger, and am getting a little nostalgic. Anyone have a kit they want to go to a good home?

Tower sells an ARF, I think it's a 40 or 60 size.

I have a Stinger 10 kit, will probably list it in the for sale section in a couple months.

Good luck,
Dave Olson

I would think that anyone who had one of those old Lanier kits would be in a huge hurry to sell it.[X(]

"I would think that anyone who had one of those old Lanier kits would be in a huge hurry to sell it."

I think I want a 60 size. I want a smaller plane to throw in the truck, but can still go gas with one of the new mini gassers.

I know it's been a while since this thread has been posted to...but I wanted to throw in my 2 cents.

I love the stinger. Just built a Stinger 10 that I found on eBay, I couldn't pass it up, so I got it and built it up for electric. (see the specs on it in "my hanger")

Fly's like a dream.

I too am looking for another one.

"edgeflyer" The stinger 10 fits nicely in my truck



Happy flying

I have a complete Giant Stinger kit that I would be willing to part with. Everything is there and in excellent condition. Great flying plane if built with a G62.

Yes I do. Other then the reply here, I never really tried to sell them. I have two complete kits. One that's started (tail feathers, 90% of the wings) and one completed unstarted kit. Both in excellent shape. Very nice kits by Lanier. Price is $125 each.
