"What a plane" - you can say that again!

During the past 10+ years that I've allowed myself the privilege & huge responsibility of helping other guys become airborne we've done so about 25% of the time with various versions of the Stick - mostly with the Ugly Stick...
Probably not the "easiest" of Trainers - but most certainly one of the most versatile of RC Planes.

I did not learn on a stick from the start, but a lot of my learning took place with a stick. What a Plane. Some pics of mine over the years:

Upload a pic here of the Stick you built.... And tell us why you built it - and more importantly - why it has not flown as yet....? B)

I learned to fly RC Planes with a seriously 2nd hand Stick that had the redoubtable privilege of being the Training Aircraft for about 7 other wannabee RC Pilots before I even got close...

And then after a couple of mishaps and repair-sessions and the like ... I decided to Strip and Re-furbish completely. Many a club mate queried this "bold" step - but I persisted and the result was very very pleasing - to me at least!
