Based upon a modified version of the original Ugly Stick, the Giant Stick Sport 90 is our take on a classic sport plane. With fun flying and relaxation in mind, the Giant Stick Sport 90 is the perfect addition to any hangar. The high set wing, thick airfoil, large tail surfaces, and generous tail moment all contribute to a very stable flying plane.
The Giant Stick Sport 90 comes almost ready to fly, requiring just final assembly and equipment installation to complete. The all balsa and light plywood airframe is designed to accomodate gas, nitro, or electric motor configurations. A large hatch on the forward fuselage grants access to the wing bolts and fuel tank or battery tray depending on your chosen power plant. To aid in orientation and at the same time looking great, the Giant Stick 90 is covered in a printed plastic film with a multi color scheme. Rounding out the model is a nice pre-painted fiberglass cowl. To aid in cooling of the engine or electric motor, a tunnel is built into the bottom of the fuselage, which can also accomodate a tuned pipe. With the high level of pre-fabrication only an evening or two is all that is needed to go from work bench to flying field.
Transporting the Giant Stick is easy thanks in part to the 2 piece wing. Once at the flying field, assembly is quick. The simplicity of this model will make it your new go-to plane for every trip to the flying field. A light wing loading and big control surfaces make this an extremely fun sport plane. Shooting touch and goes, loops, rolls, flat spins, the Giant Stick does them with ease and comes back for more.

Ive had this plane for about 12 months now and due to the fact that it is very tail heavy I am running a Saito 1.80 F/S swinging a 16X10 pattern prop. The quality of the kit is really good (its actually a VQ model kit) and they do make pretty good quality kits. Even with the 1.80 on it i still had to put weight up front so its a heavy plane and the 1.80 hauls it around the sky pretty well. i have found that it washes off speed quite quickly in any sort of hard turn. The only modification i made was to put a bigger fuel tank and don't use the supplied pushrods they're way to thin. I personally think that the recommended power options for this plane are way off. It needs a big motor,,more than what they are suggesting. I would be surprised if a .90 would get this plane off the ground if it was balanced properly. Once setup this is a great value for money kit. Happy flying.The plane looks OK but the covering is really poor............Its the sticky type of covering that has no strength at all.......... I wouldn't pay full price for this kit .......just about worth the sale price and no more.............I have stripped the covering off completely .....even that not easy as it leaves a sticky mess on the frame......try to avoidok I have just finished the assembly and I have fitted a NGH 25cc petrol and I am using standard size servo i have fitted a tow point just at the trailing edge of the wings ,I was concerned at the reports of TAIL HEAVY so i installed the ELV/RUD serves foward of the spar tube, I have two Batteries one for spark 1800 life and a 5 cell nimh 6v for the Rx I still had to add about 60grm of lead but I suspect that was due to the tow hook and release servo behind the wing ,
anyway all up weight came in at 5kg
I will maiden mid week so will update thenThe announced weight is false. Mine weighs 5400g with an engine DLE20 and 290 gr of lead on the engine. BIG PROBLEM OF CENTRING. The DOCUMENTATION IS FALSE.
Used 110mm for the CG.
It flies very well and asks for a long runway for landing.
I was obliged of moved forward the engine of 20mm and thus of made a support. Always because of the centring.Der Stick ist von guter Qualitt und der Preis ist super. Ideal fr den Einstieg in den Gromodellbau. Ich wrde ihn sogar zum Lehrer/Schler-Fliegen empfehlen, weil er sehr gutmtig ist. Auch die Fluglage ist gut erkennbar - Eigenschaften, die ein gutes Trainermodell ausmachen. Allerdings wrde ich einen greren Motor (ab 23 ccm) empfehlen, da der angegebene SP, mit leichteren Motoren, nur durch Zugabe von Blei erreichbar ist.
Prdikat: Sehr empfehlenswertThis is the most tail heavy aircraft I ever bought. The manual specified a 120 four stroke engine is required. So based on this info I tried two different engines
OS 110 and RCV 130 and the airplane is still far tail heavy even with 2 servos removed from its tail end. Despite all my efforts I could still NOT balance this airplane. Hence, this airplane is useless. I can't do anything about. By the way there is an error in the Centre of gravity. See "section 18" of the manual. The wing diagram says 99mm to 106 mm while the sentence above it says 89-91mm. Confusing?
Habe das Modell 1 x mit 26er Benziner und 1 x mit dem C 5065 und 8S Lipo in Betrieb.
Beide Motorisierungungen erlauben den senkrechten Steigflug problemlos.
Segler mit bis 7,5 kg sind kein Problem.
Ansonsten zu diesem Preis ein echtes Schnppchen. Verarbeitung ist ok.
Fahrwerke habe ich auf CFK umgendert und die Aufnahme verstrkt.
I have a CRRC 26i installed. Weight is 4kg. Performance is very good, unlimited vertical. Superb aircraft.I used an ASP 90 glow motor from HK ( superb engine). However, I encountered the same problem reported by others, plane was tail heavy. After some discussion with my club members I decided to move the elevator and rudder servos to the forward locations, using 5mm hollow carbon rods and 3mm control rods with 3mm clevises at the servo and horn connections. I added over 300 grams of lead ballast drilled, screwed
and epoxied to the front end of the engine bearers. I beefed up the undercarriage by adding a large alloy plate to the fuse to spread the load on landing together with 100mm low bounce wheels.
These modifications provided me with a super stable and highly aerobatic plane. A great follow on to a trainer.
Habe mein Modell mit einem DLE20 ausgerstet. Um kein zustzliches Blei zu bentigen, habe ich die beiden Hhenruder Servos nach vorn verlegt und die Anlenkung ber Bowdenzge realisiert. Der Erstflug verlief vllig unkritisch. Mit dem Schwerpunkt bei 106mm macht man nichts verkehrt. Das Modell fliegt wie auf Schienen, Starts Stall erhalten und Landungen sind unproblematisch.
Beim 2. Flug kam es zum Hhenruderflattern und Verlust eines Hhenruders. Die Landung mit nur einem HR war kein Problem. Ursache war sicher das Spiel in meiner Bowdenzuganlenkung. Nun habe ich die HR Servos, wie vorgesehen, ins Heck gebaut und am Motortrger 200g Blei befestigt.
Die Schaum Rder werden sicher robusteren Gummirdern weichen. Die passen nicht zum Modell Gewicht.
