An easy, straightforward assembly project, the Giant Big Stik ARF goes together in just hours. Its strong balsa/ply airframe arrives precovered in genuine Top Flite® MonoKote® film with the traditional Maltese cross trim scheme. Great Planes-brand quality hardware is also supplied.
Instructions are included with the Giant Big Stik for installing taildragger landing gear — the configuration that must be used with most gasoline engines — or tricycle style, which provides easier ground control with a steerable nose wheel.
The Giant Big Stik's spacious fuselage compartment offers plenty of room for comfortable, secure installation of your fuel tank, receiver, receiver battery, throttle servo, and nose gear servo if you've chosen a tricycle landing gear configuration.
