I must be ahead of the curve for once, I bought this Ministick lazer cut kit from Kits123123 (Wayne) off Ebay a couple of weeks ago.

Bob, I did a search on that seller ID but nothing came up, could you give me a link, please?

Thanks Bert

Bob / Bert, is this it? Mini Stick on Aliexpress

Not bad for £19.09 inc P&P!  Other suppliers have it at a range of prices with film and decal packs, and motor and motor/ESC + servos packs.

Is the wood used balsa ply?  The reason I ask is there seem to be a lot of places where the lightening holes result in the grain going  the wrong way.

You would have more street cred in the SMA if you went for something like this.

My mistype Bert, it's kits12313, here.

He doesn't hold a regular stock inventory, he looks to be running a genuine artisan cottage industry so it's a case of seeing what he has on offer at any particular time. Might be worth contacting him to see what he has available or is willing to custom make for you.

Robin, that is a different kit, only 22" with the usual fashionable excess of lightening holes against mine's 30" span and plain sheet sides.

Hmm, is that kit for a model or a lapel badge?

I've just had another look at that, I think I had one of these pre-built (RTC - ready to cover!) Sticks a couple of years ago.  If it is the one I had it is not lightly built having a 3/16" sheet box fuselage and tail surfaces.  Flies ok but would have been better if it contained less tree.

Thanks Kevin for the SMA logo - I think a few of my most SMA-capable wee aeroplanes will be sporting that next time that they fly.

I was just going to print mine on a sticky label. It can go where the previous Cox logo went

I have found my SMA Baseball cap, a small patch and then I realised the the mug holding my assorted pens is an SMA Mug.

You could add your Op-ID too Leccy, an all-in-one utility label?

One can buy Inkjet vinyl on Ebay. I used some for the identification numbers on my models
