Here is what I'm currently getting out of this conversation. "The Balsa USA design for the Stick 40 is crap. So you need to make modifications so that it works correctly."

I will see what I can...

Last year, I had basically all good luck in the hobby. No crashes, or failures to speak of. This year has been a little ruff for me. I had two dead stick landings. 1 with the WACO. 1 With the...

I crashed today again. More repair work. I hate this. I have been flying every summer since 1996, I've been flying more advanced models then this, and yet a trainer plane has been giving me the most...

I can give you and everyone a little bit of an update. Dad and I put weight on the stab, and let it sit that way over night. That didn't seem to fix it. After you removed the weight it gradually came...

As long as the wire is dragging on the ground that airplane tracks straight. It is after the tail comes up for take off that it starts swerving all over the place.



This the only model that...

I made these pictures smaller so that I could upload them easier. But these are all the tail draggers I've flown. And none of them gave me the trouble that my Stick 40 has been giving me.

The one you flew, was it a tail dragger or did it have a nose wheel?

BALSA USA: Stick 40, Having trouble with take offs.

I've been having trouble with my Stick 40 by Balsa USA. I have it configured as a tail dragger. They have you put a little wire on it, instead of a tail wheel. It just drags the wire on the ground. I...

As you can probably tell from this thread. I haven't been getting as many responses as I used to get here. Maybe I didn't post in a good spot, or use a good title.

That's a nice engine. It's out of my budget range! Seems like that would be too much power for this size of model. Probably drinks your fuel down extremely fast!

It has been a really good airplane. I enjoy flying it. It's one of my favorite models to fly when it's cloudy because it's easy to see, and flies slow.
