About this Plan

Big Stik aka Big Stick - Radio control sport model, for Evra or Quadra power and 4 channel RC.

Quote:- "A 101 inch wingspan version of Phil Kraft's famous Ugly Stik (oz5175). Designed and stressed for engines up to two cubic inches. Internal strength is great enough to allow the use of mostly any covering material. Construction of the model is all wood and kit design is with simple fast assembly in mind ...capable of most stunts including inside and outside snaps, inside and outside square loops, spins, rolling circles, inverted eights and more..."

Quote:- "Thanks for the awesome site Mary and Steve! Here is the 101in Bud Nosen Giant Stik for gas power. Enjoy!"

Anyone have the instruction sheet from the kit? Laser Cut Kits in Australia do a very similar plan + short kit.

I am so pleased that somebody has had time to put these plans back up, as I believe there will be a number of people who will want to fly one of these Giants Stixs. I built my first one from a $35 kit found at a yard sale and powered it with a Zenoa 80 twin. Sold the airplane to a friend who passed away and his wife will not sell anything that is still sitting in his hanger. So I am ready to build another. They fly fantastic and would equate it to a big aerobatic trainer. Thank you so much, my original plans did not show formers and I would have to modify to have ribs and formers laser cut. This will save a ton of time. Cheers.

Along with your plans there was an article outlining the build of that particular aircraft but it ended with a comment of refer to page 68. Am I missing some text or do you have any further information regarding page 68? Thank you so much have a great day.

Hi Mary. As mentioned earlier, something from the archives. Our shop kit builder, Agustine, is holding a 25cc Big Stik he built for promotional purposes, in the photo [more pics 004].

More old photos [more pics 005-007]. The Big Stik with a sky-diver underneath belonged to my partner in "The" Hobby Shop, Barry Hunt.

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
