VQ-GLB Giant Stick 120/23cc flight and interview video

Feb 16, 2012 3 Comments by

We all know that bigger flies better and one of the best smaller flying planes has to be the stick, so….VQ Models introduced their new GLB Giant Stick which is a 1.20 glow or a 20-23cc gas size plane.  This stick has a 78-inch wingspan and is just about 46-inches long.  The two-piece wing makes it easy to transport to and from the flying field.   Listen to what Arron Strietzel has to say about this great plane in the video and be sure to check out his review in Model Airplane News.

West Coast senior editor About me: I’ve been involved with RC aircraft since high school and have flown just about everything. I started my RC career with scratch-building, but now like many pilots I rely on ARFs to get me in the air. My main focus is on pylon racing, aerobats, combat and scale warbirds.

    Got one. Put a DLE 30 on it. Covering is stick on, not iron on. Since I decieded to recover it with ultracote anyway, I made some needed modification. Made a trap door on the bottom fron and placed the ignition module there. Used bandsaw to remove the ailerons and extend the aileron cutout to within about 3 inches of fuse; made new oversize ailerons and mounted all control surfaces with 1/8 Robart hinges. Great flyer, and the 30 cc is perfect for it. Have a couple of 1/4 scale gassers, but the really ugly stick is now my favorite for everyday flying.

    What caused the hatch to fly off at around 3:45 in the video (during the hover?)

      Not really sure Frank,
      i am thinking the pilot just wanted out :-)
      actually that happened on the first flight and we put it back on. it stayed on for the next two flights, we could not get it to fall off again. I am thinking we did not have a good seal around the magnets on the hatch during the first flight.
      BTW good eyes, you are the first one to see that, at least the first one to make a comment.
