The best part about these message boards is if you don't like whats being said, you can always leave. You're taking the fun out of it for me with your tantrum, so......

See Ya!

The Slow Stick will always be fun, no matter what the critics say!!!!!!

I rebuilt my SS from parts yesterday and flew it today. I downsized the servos to HS56's, got rid of the steerable tailwheel (cool, but not needed), installed a Mega 16/15/7 DD with a 10x4.7 APC-sf prop. I robbed the V-tail from my prev SS and got it all assembled last night.

Today, I went to the park near the house and proceeded with the maiden...roll out and whoa! where did all of that pitch up come from! After a wobbly, drunk man turn that looked like I was going to spin it in, I got it on the ground..Out came some throw and in came some expo right now!
After about 6 hops and landings, I could finally fly it with some semblance of competence. The plane speeds up nicely and is very responsive. The wing is stiff, along with the tail. As I flew and got my old reflexes back (maybe 6 airplane flights in the last 1.5 years) I was able to get some low and slow flying in. It doesn't fly as slow as a reg SS, so I'll be building one for the greenbelt behind the house. It will remain pretty stock and MUCH lighter (23.5 oz with a TP2100 3S batt). This one flies like a shrunken trainer, so it will penetrate nicely in wind and will have the control authority needed, but it gives up a little in the real slow stuff...

Here's a few pix taken this morning:

Question Need Info

I have a hobbico beechcraft staggerwing that has on the #3 flight crashed due to the switch on the side decided that it was no longer gonna be a switch and turned off on its own. I managed (by sheer luck) to only break the wings and the tail section got away clean.
My question is I want to get a slow stick and have the Staggerwing elecronics in tact (minus one switch) and was thinking I might b able to use the electronincs and motor to mount on the SS.

Any thoughts and or advice if this would work as taxes on the house are due nect month and I gotta be frugal (wife's quote).
Thanks in advance for any help / info.
