For more than 20 years, Ugly Sticks have been a perennial favorite among sport modelers. Their basic aerobatic abilities and stable flight characteristics make them a natural second or third plane for the intermediate pilot.
Hangar 9 has taken
Stick concept to the next level. The Super Sticks offer several advantages over
previous designs, including more nimble aerobatic performance and a more modern
appearance. With their striking dark blue, bright green, silver and white trim
scheme, these "Sticks" are anything but ugly!
The Super Sticks
offer increased control authority, due to their larger control surfaces. In fact, the aileron and elevator chord (width) has been increased by over 25%
for absolutely incredible roll and pitch response. At high speeds with full
aileron deflection, the roll rate is almost too fast to count, while the large
elevator gives tight 20 foot diameter loops inside or out. In addition, each
aileron is driven by its own wing-mounted servo, which not only provides more
precise and direct control, but opens up the pilot's options for flaperons or
The Super Sticks
are 90% pre-built ARFs, with a bolt-on wing that gives better security
and cleaner looks. For added flexibility, each Super Stick kit comes with all
of the hardware necessary to build it as either a tail-dragger, or a tricycle
landing gear plane. A universal aluminum engine mount is pre-installed on the
firewall, and features a clamp-in design, so no drilling or tapping is required.
Stick is available in both a .40 and .60 size configuration. The .40 size accepts
.40-.46 two-cycles, as well as .50-.65 four-cycles. The .60 size plane accepts
.61-.75 two-cycle engines, as well as .65-.91 four-cycles.
For pilots who are
ready to move up from a trainer, or sport fliers who want more spirited aerobatic
performance in a quick-to-build, high-quality plane, Hangar 9's Super Sticks
are the ideal choice.
