The GWS Slow Stick is a great platform for almost any electric RC activity. It's made with low cost in mind and it works fairly well right out of the box. However, did you ever wonder what it would be like to have one setup with all the nice hardware? On this page, you'll find those goodies. Improved motor mounting systems, control horns, landing gear choices and etc... Also, there are many parts here to make reconfiguring the kit into other types of models easy. Ever wonder how they fly V tail? Would tricycle gear be cool? Want a great camera mount? How about a twin, tri-motor, quad-motor, 5-motor or even multi ducted fans?

Do one up with all the nice parts one time and you'll never go back.

More complex upgrades come with an instruction sheet. The simpler stuff, all you really need is the web photo to know how to put them together. Some items are not complex enough for instructions but might include a few pointers in the description. Generally, I sqeeze the kits together first, then wick thin CA into any joints requiring adhesive. Nothing here requires any other type of adhesives. Obviously others may be used if you prefer as adhesive choice is non-critical. Construction is straight forward with most items having only 1-4 parts to make them up.

Extensive E-Zone discussion of these parts and many hybrid projects here.

Slow Stick 5mm T Tail Mount - Product Image

Slow Stick 5mm T Tail Mount

Finally it's easy to convert to a T tail. Complete with washer plates. Glue to your stab and horizontal or use 4-40 nylon bolt/nuts in the pre drilled holes. May also be used for mounting verticals to the ends of your stab. Works with any 5mm foam. If using with stock Slow Stick parts, trim the top of the vertical down until you have a flat spot long enough for this mount. Comes complete with washer plates to prevent bolt damage to surfaces.

Slow stick parts come in both 4 and 5 mm. 4mm is .157" or pretty close to 5/32". 5mm is a little over 3/16" at .197". Measure your parts before ordering. One images shows part being used to mount a fin to the center of the wing on our Twin Tractor Canard model in the shop.

Slow Stick Adjustable Camera Mount - Product Image
Click for larger image

Slow Stick Adjustable Camera Mount

At last a easy way to mount your digital camera to your Slow Stick boom. Our Camera Mount is loaded with form & function. Platform is large enough to fit almost any hand held camera. 4.2" long, 3.95" wide. It is slotted for Velcro One-Wrap and has 5 rubber band pegs on each end. Plenty of room for adhesive backed Velcro also. Mount allows adjustment axially around the stick in over a 90 degree arc. By repositioning the mount on the different facets of the boom any position around its 360 degrees may be set.

Another nice feature is the camera platform does not have to be glued to the supports. If used in this way, rubber bands are required (you'll probably use some to secure most any camera anyway) to lock the mount plate in its supports. This way you can remove the camera without undoing it from the mount platform plate. You may want to remove the camera to lighten your ship up for play or maybe you wish to change to an alternate camera for a special shot. Extra mounting plates are available for this purpose.

Want to get the sunset shot of the city (or mountains) with the wingtip in photo? This mount will make it possible. Aerial Photography "high-eye-in-the-sky" fun can provide endless entertainment and has some potential for profit. The Slow Stick must be the most popular camera platform ever. Easily carries the extra weight of a camera and is great for limited access takeoff and landing areas.

Note, you have to devise your own mechanical or electronic trigger to snap the photo. Velcro One-Wrap and top quality hardware included.

Configure your Slow Stick any way that suits you. Tricycle gear setups may prove desirable to provide the best protection for your camera. Parts to accomplish this are available in this category.

Schools and Universities: Science & Engineering classes interested in hands-on projects can consider a class project to obtain a student produced aerial photo as a combined lesson in engineering and project management. The school, local public works projects or even locally topical subject could be considered as the "Mission". Perhaps an infrared camera is available that could be used to photograph a neighborhood or school facilities on a cold winter day. The ensuing analysis of heat losses present endless opportunities for ongoing student projects and direction. The mission could be to study water runoff and retention during the high precipitation season. The number of fresh, new and exiting project ideas is without end. Combining science/engineering and construction of a UAV project with a real tangible result is certain to keep your students interested and engaged. An enlarged photo to display or publish your success can serve well to motivate the next group of students. Let us know if we can assist your curriculum in any way.

Horizontal Stab Stiffener Plates - Product Image
Click for larger image

Horizontal Stab Stiffener Plates

Ever crease your horizontal stab in a crash or flip on landing? I've made this mistake a time or two and the reason why we designed this part. Not a bad idea to put it on from the beginning. A great way to repair an already damaged stab section. Made from 1/64th aircraft ply. Each package contains 2 parts. Glue to the surface of your stab. Top and bottom or just one side if you like. Factory mounting holes are already pre-drilled and ready to go. The thin ply is still flexible and is designed to prevent the stab from creasing at the boom when stressed too far.

If your building a canard, this part would really be a must have as the canard is under much greater flight loads than a horizontal stab. Also not to be overlooked is anything you run the model into hits the canard first. Save yourself some troubles later on by using this part now.

Suggested method is to glue to surface(s) with a thin smear of GWS's provide glue or CA, center carefully and weigh down with a modest weight like a book against a flat surface until dry.

V-Tail Stab Stiffener Plates

Use to stiffen up the mounting points on your V-Tail sections. It's possible to crease the V-tail foam parts if you flip the model over harshly on landing. This part set will fix that damage or if instaled to begin with perhaps eliminate the failure all together. Super light weight, made from 1/64 aircraft ply. Each package contains 2 cut sheets. Mounting holes are pre-drilled for easy mount up.

Part may be used on one or both sides of your stab sections. You decide. If you plan on using on both sides, 2 sets must be ordered.

Suggested method is to glue to surface(s) with a thin smear of GWS's provide glue or CA, center carefully and weigh down with a modest weight like a book against a flat surface until dry.

Slow Stick Balsa Tail Group - Product Image

Slow Stick Balsa Tail Group

Tired of your Slow Stick tail bending, flapping in the wind at your higher than normal speed? Wishing for more rigid control? Here is your ultimate tail upgrade!! This tail will not flutter and is many times more rugged than the stock tail. If your worried about tail loads lifting heavy weights, flying fast or just plain love the idea of Slow Sticks but hate foam, welcome to heaven.

A fully self jigging stick built tail. You can press this together and shake it up in the air hard as you like, nothing is falling apart. I'm tempted to cover one without glue for experimental (show off ;-) purposes. However, I do recommend you glue it together. Simply piece the jigsaw together, hold to flat surface and wick thin CA into all the joints, bevel the elevator and rudder 45 degrees for tape hinges (or 90 degree points for CA hinges), round out the edges, surface sand, cover, mount, hook up control rods and fly.

Kit comes as complete package with our custom upgrade horn set and vertical stab mount system. ($6 upgrades value) and instructional drawing. Parts are exact stock shape (except no hard to cover scallops) and hinge lines. Laser cut from 3/16 balsa right here in the good ol' USA. Mounting holes and control horn holes are all pre-made. Your tail will go on straight and true. Additionally, the stab mount has provisions for moving the stab forward from stock location in order to give you more elevator throw if your building an aerobatic monster. Fully compatible with Stevens Aero or Millennium upgrade kits.

Don't forget to get some transparent covering for this kit, she is a real beauty when complete.
