Upgrade wing kit for GWS Slow Stick.  This laser-cut parts package for the balsabuilder SportStik, will turbo charge the plan based build allowing the modeler to quickly proceed to the framing portion of the build.  Featuring all required formers (laser-cut) and strip wood for this delightful 1/2A trainer as featured in Volume 1 | Issue 4 of balsabuilder magazine.

Background:

This product features our WingIt! wing kit and laser-cut shape parts to complete the balsabuilder edtion SportStik.  This product was reissued in 2016 for publication in balsabuilder Magazine.  The balsabuilder version of the classic Stevens AeroModel design features a plans-built friendly laser-cut parts package and support for modern brushless electric motors.  

This laser-cut parts package is designed to augment the plans, published in Volume 1 | Issue 4 of  balsabuilder magazine, and makes use of the balsabuilder WingIt! building system, this system is enhanced with numerous helpful interlocking building aids which greatly simplify the assembly process.  Unlike the laser-engineered Stevens AeroModel design, the balsabuilder version of this model was developed to satisfy those seeking a more traditional model building experience.  Construction of balsabuilder designs therefore favor the use of a building board and t-pins.  This more traditional build will reward the hobbyist with a deligtfully strong airframe featuring clean lines and beautiful open "stick" frame work to enjoy. 

This product has been designed for Park 450 class (150-200W) brushless electric power.
