Das Uber Stick

My good friend, Scott, & I were bemoaning the demise of the H9 .60-size Ultra Stick. Well, you either mope or you get up off of your behind and do something about it. We did do something about it. Here are pics and comments about the progress.

The design is about 63% larger than the .60-size Ultra Stick. The wingspan is 100" and the power will be from
a pair of Sach's-based 4.2 & 4.4 CI gasoline engines. The wings are joined using 1 1/4" aluminum tube and the
stabs will be removable for easier transportation.

A few decals to spice it up.
  Ribs are made of door skin
ply. Profile copied from an
Extra 300. A router and
template was used to cut
the rib outlines.

During some mock-up testing for CG we decided to switch to a pair of Zenoah G-62's for power. This change makes this a 60-size Stick - 60cc!
