The Hobbyking Mini Stick is hugely popular and this pre-covered air frame version can be used as either a crash kit or you can opt to choose your own power train and RC equipment. Built right, the Mini Stick is a brilliant park flyer and massive amounts of fun!
The airframe is pre-covered balsa and is nicely made & finished. Equipped with the right Brushless Motor the mini stick will have plenty of power for aerobatics, although it is just as happy floating around the sky. We have tested this model quite extensively and it put a smile on our faces each and every time, the Mini Stick is addictive!

Great little bug, found taping the control surfaces better than CA hinges. Using a Turnigy 1811 2900 kv motor, which is tiny but powerful enough, a 5x5 prop seems a bit too big, will try a smaller one next time.First to combat the negative reviews here, you're giving about 30 dollars for a very capable kit. Yes it takes some effort to get right and yes some bits could be better, but this quickly turned into my favorite model! I flew it on the recommended setup but got hungry for more so I added a 3100 kv sk3 and a plush 10a I'm the mix. This combo works very good with 2s and a 5043. Hang on! I have some 370mah 3s packs and I plan to run 4540 with that. I love the stick! Thanks hobby king for making this hobby fun without breaking the bank!i flew my mini stick for the first time today! it flys great .best tracking small plane i ever had.with that being said.i am dissapointed with the lay out of this plane as it is way to tail heavy. in mine i have a 2s 500mah zippy compact and turngy pluch 6A esc packed in the front compartmant as far foward as it would go with a 2900kv C10 motor outside the fire wall.i also do not use the rudder nor did i install the servo for it to help with weight issue. i had to space my motor off the fire wall and put 1 ounce of lead behind it in order to get it to balance.the plane flys great and i enjoy it.very cute little classic.but prepare your self for tail heavy issues.i got 20 min air time with this setup.as i was runnin half throttle most of the flight.This thing is tiny. It's great for smaller parks, and just general fun.I bought this plane too when i seen it ,i thought is was a waste of money ,,But i built it to my own spec. And boy can it fly ,bril ,,love it ..Love it. Possibly not 5 crown quality, but as crown per $ goes I'm happy to score 5. C10 motor mounted outside on the firewall, 10a esc, recommended servos. You definitely need the rudder for ground handling. I used tape hinges rather than ca hinges, and also glued a small control horn under the tail as a tail skid. Very precise and predictable in flight, looking forward to many more cricket pitch touch n goes.Not happy with this product this is the 2nd plane out of many that im not happy with poor quality balsa cracked in a lot of places also warped after messing around with it only to realise its waste of money and time I set fire to it on my BBQ total crap DONT BUY save your moneyWhat a fun little plane. Its a fast fun flyer for sure. Mine came out heavier than suggested but flies great. I am using 5 gram servos and a 230mah 11v battery. Also as others have stated, use alternative control horns. I also am not a fan of the heat shrunk push rods but they work, if I did it again I would use lite wire and make my own and use some nylon control horns. I am buying another or two just to have. My 10 year old son who is quickly becoming a better pilot then me also loves this plane.this Is a fun little flyer. I didn't think it was going to fly well as I built it. the wing in my kit I received had the covering coming off half the underside. so I just removed it the rest of the way and ironed on some ultracote 1inch b&w checkerboard and spiffed her up. looks great now. but you must be a builder to get a good result. after the build it flew way better than I expected. CHECK THE CG. very important. if it is on the main wing spar it will fly great.The weight listed is a myth. The naked, unassembled airframe weighs over 85 grams. You can't get three servos, a motor, an ESC, a receiver, and glue in at under 25 grams. Oh, well. The airframe is good, though, and I look forward to getting this in the air at about 135-140 grams. At that weight it'll be okay, but nothing to write home about. More later.
