I had the opportunity to test out my Great Planes Big Stick 40 I acquired from Cloyce this weekend. For the past many years I have had a Stick in my hanger and this plane fills my need. It is a great flyer and I am super pleased with the OS 55 AX power plant. I cannot believe that this two stroke will reliably idle under 2,000 RPM. I got in three long flights today.
The temps got up there by the afternoon ... maybe high 80s to mid 90s. Bugs got a bit bad, but repellant kept them away.
A good time was had by all.
