Thoughts from the workbench of Radical RC. The online retailer of electronics and kits for radio control aircraft. Dave Thacker shares his thoughts and knowledge of electronics, batteries, kit design and overall enjoyment of the hobby.
Gil Weiss from southeast PA sends a beautiful photo of his Micro Stick. Just test flown. Looks Great Gil!
Several years ago I built a Micro Stick. The kit went together very nicely. The little plane sat on a shelf until today. I enjoyed the last nice day of calm warm weather here in SE PA and test flew the plane. It was a real Hoot! Flew great and had an unbelievable roll rate. Landed fine. Other than add some more “expo”, no changes were required. I will keep this plane in my active fleet from here on out.
Check out Kern Hanson’s Slow Stick Bipe creation. I can see parts from various models and he altered the wing mount system to hold the motor a bit higher than the stock setup would have been. The whole point with Slow Stick mods is to do it your way. Great Job Kern!
Dave here’s a few pictures of a Slow Stick Bi-Plane I built using a couple of your SS hop up parts. It’s very stable and fly’s nice and slow 🙂
Just wanted to drop you a line and tell you that I received my order (31114) including the correction from my last order. I’m out here in western Oregon and received it today Saturday Feb 25. That is more than fantastic service.
I’ve been doing a little business with you over the last couple of years. Our local hobby shop burned down last fall and they have decided not to reopen. The next nearest one is 75 miles away, so I am looking to do more on line ordering. Radical RC will be a large part of that.
Also, I wanted to comment on the Stick 400 kit that I bought. This has to be the best design and execution of a kit I have ever seen. If it flys half as well as it builds it’s going to be a blast.
Example of how a well planned power system works. Model hanging in shop. Can’t wait to fly it again. John builds nice stuff. All of them light and strong. Many hand built models by John are listed on our front page as of the date of this post.
Hi Dave, (in reference to the Micro and Mini Stick kits)
………I love the kits, perfect parts fit!
