GWS Slow Stick
The slow stick is an incredibly fast plane to build and a very slow and stable flyer.
The new kits come with a Fibre-glass tube, replacing the older alloy version.
An excellent motor for this plane is the Towerpro BM2410-09 with a 1047 or 11x3.8 propeller and a 1300mah to 2200mah 3S1P battery pack. In fact you can run a large range of battery sizes on this plane.
This plane can fly extremely slowly and landing at less than walking pace is common in a slight breeze.
If its 20min+ flight times and an easy stress free Sunday, then try out the legendary Slow Stick!
We suggest one of our towerpro combos to power this bird.

This is such an amazing plane... easy to build and fly... the wings are so amazing... A very innovative plane by GWS. I am glad HK is stocking them. But I wish they could lower the price a bit as these can be sold at a much lower price than this. Or tey can include the electronics in this price... I am pretty sure about that...this plane is not for the absolute beginner. start of with toy planes like the air hogs that can take crashes and are resistant to damage. because you need skill to fly this bird. the slow stick cannot endure multiple crashes not even one good crash. when you have the necessary flying skills, then fly this bird.happy days are here again. i have 2 of these, if the wind is down break out the slow stick .dont forget to add right side thrust and down thrust. Im going to add lights and ailerons soonim very satisfied with this kit. i was a suprires about two things: mine was yellow, i didnt know that they come in random colours. and second the kit actually differs from the instruction. few holes were already drilled (you no longer have to drill anything) and they add a plastic wing reinforcment. very nice and easy kit.Excellent avion ! Trs maniable, mme avec un petit brushless tel que le combo towerpro 2410-9T + helice 1047 a depote, monte verticale l'aise ! Facilement customisable (tests de moteurs, ajout d'ailerons...) ! Rapport Prix/Fun imbattable ! J'ai mis une lipo long max 1300 mah, autonomie trs correcte en pilant comme un fou avec gaz presque toujours fond !
A cult classic! A great test bed for various motor combinations (e.g. TP2408-21 and 2 cell LiPo works fine with 8040 prop). Can fly in a confined space and carry a camera for Aerial Photography. Oh - and great beginners plane!
Highly recommended!Have been flying Slow Stick for 2 Months. Initially I set 3 degrees right and 3 degrees down thrust and used BM2408-21T with 10 x 4.7 prop. Motor ran hot and used the battery too fast. Did some tests and changed to 9 x 4.7. Now had lots of power but it climbed too much. Set downthrust to 8 degrees down (still 3 degrees right) and the model flies beautifully from very slow to fast. Motor ran cool and got double battery life - about 20 mins from 1300mA Lipo. Lovely combination.Got it for my 9 years old child' very simple to assemble and great on flight. using it with std.r/c ' 8gr 1.4 kg mini servo 2200 lipoGreat little plane mine was yellow bolted on a towerpro combo and flying with 3s 1600mah its got plenty of power for them loops would recommend reinforcing the wings tho mine just buckled so getting some cf rod now
want another one but no more in stockgreat plane,bought with the recomended towerpro motor upgade and an 1800ma lipo gives vertical performance and still comes in steady for a landing.have bought another one already.
