H9 Ultra Stick kit
« on: October 28, 2015, 09:57:10 am »
With some small plans from Bob McDuff, I tried to see about getting a .40 size kit cut since these are no longer available from Hanger 9. Didn't work out in dealing with Laser-Works for a couple of reasons.  I have had 3 of these and I need another for the fun flys,etc. I was steered to a similar plane kit: 'Slim Jim' that will take my OS 55 2 stroke. Kit should arrive in a few days.

Ultracoat covering job now complete. What we have is an ARF ready for assembly.  Engine will be OS 55 2 stroke; not new. Here are some photos.

OK, the "ARF" is put together with everything installed. CG came out good right on the wing spar. Only problem is the OS 55 is not running good. It is a new engine just past break in stage; more work there.  But here are a few pictures.
