Key Features

  • Covered in genuine UltraCote®
  • Quad flaps
  • Extremely lightweight construction

Overview

The secret to any great sport aerobatic model is reducing the amount of weight the engine has to lug around, thus providing excess power for vertical and other extreme maneuvers. It is here that the Ultra Stick™ .60 succeeds admirably. It comes 90% prebuilt, using the same open-structure construction of the Ultra Stick .40 that minimizes weight without sacrificing structural strength.

All necessary hardware needed for finishing assembly is included, and it's covered in a dazzling transparent yellow UltraCote® trim scheme that shows off the structure's fine workmanship. Our model weighed in at a fit-and-trim 6.75 pounds completely built with a Saito™ 100 four-stroke bolted onto the nose.

Like the other Ultra Sticks, the 60's flight performance is a thrilling blend of wild aerobatic maneuverability and, when equipped with the optional quad-flaps, unbelievable short field capability.

The Ultra Stick 60 is designed to accept most any .60 to .91 two-stroke or .72 to 1.00 four-stroke engine. The Saito 100 that our test model was equipped with worked more like an anti-gravity device than an engine. It handled vertical uplines with ease and would pull the plane through just about any wild maneuver we dreamed up. We could literally feel how light the airframe was by how quickly it responded to power changes when hanging on the prop.

This "airy" feeling naturally made other slow flight maneuvers a piece of cake too. The Ultra Stick .60 will float and "harrier" with the best of them. Stalls at low rates occur as a gentle forward "mushing" motion, with zero tip stall tendencies. Landings are equally satisfying. With low rates and the engine at idle, we had full roll and yaw control all the way to touchdown. In high-speed level flight, the generously proportioned ailerons yielded blazing roll rates. The big elevator effects the plane with equal authority, yanking the plane from level to the vertical in a split second or keeping perfect track during consecutive tight-diameter loops—inside or out.

Naturally, we had to give the quad-flap option a whirl and were not disappointed. Entering a dive from speck-in-the-sky high, we tried the trademark Ultra Stick vertical approach to landing. It's quite a showstopper! Switching flaps to the "crow" position (outboard up, inboard down) was like popping a drag chute. The Ultra Stick 60's super lightweight airframe really responds to the extra drag, allowing it to come straight down, level out, and land in less distance than the very capable Ultra Stick 1.20.

In sum, the Ultra Stick .60 stays true to the Ultra Stick tradition of excellent high-speed maneuverability and rock solid slow-speed stability. Its striking blue-and-yellow transparent UltraCote trim looks brilliant in flight. Sure, looks aren't everything, but considering the Ultra Stick 60 has just about all the performance any sport pilot can handle, it's just icing on the cake.

FAQs

Product Support Tips

What engine should I choose?

Choose the lightest weight, highest power engine you can find, within the engine recommendations. The Saito 100 is a very good choice with this plane for unlimited performance.

What radio system should I choose?

A four channel radio is the minimum to be able to fly this plane. A 5 channel system is the minimum to use the quad flap set up, and a 7 channel system is the minimum to use all of the functions of the quad flap set up listed in the manual.

What servos should I choose?

Standard servos are more than adequate for the plane. But keep in mind that the better servos you use, the better the plane will fly.

What can be done to improve performance?

Using a computer radio, you can mix elevator and aileron to rudder to make knife-edge track straight. Keep in mind the lower the weight of the plane; the better it will fly, so keep additional weight to a minimum. Also a lightweight, high power engine will give the best performance.

Section 5: Installing the Horizontal Stabilizer

Step 4 and 5

The diagram for adjusting the stab relative to the wing shows the elevators in the diagram. The elevator is not to be mounted at this point, so just measure to the rear of the stab as it states in the text.

Step 7


Take great care not to cut too deeply when removing the covering on the top of the horizontal tail, or a failure will result.

Section 6: Installing the Vertical Stabilizer (Fin)

Step 5

Here again, take great care not to cut into the fin and the fuse when removing the covering, or a failure will result.

Section 9: Installing the Rudder and Elevator Control Horns

Step 3

Drilling the 3 parallel holes for the control horn is very difficult and takes some time to get the control horn backing plate onto the screws. Just be patient and drill them the best you can, and if necessary you may need to drill them out a couple times to get them to line up. Some CA put in the holes drilled will help keep things secure.

Section 12: Mounting the Engine

Step 4

The firewall will need drilled with an 11/64” drill bit, rather than the 1/8” listed. 1/8” is not large enough to put the throttle guide tube through the firewall.

Step 6


Note that the washers are only used on the bolts going through the firewall. They are not used on the engine, nor are they included.

Section 14: Installing the Aileron and/or Quad Flap Linkages

Step 5

As in the case of the elevator and rudder control horns, the 3 holes are very difficult to drill parallel to each other. If necessary drill the holes a couple times and use some CA to keep them securely mounted.

Section 15: Installing the Rudder, Elevator, and Throttle Pushrod

Step 7

The pushrods do have to exit the fuse at a difficult angle, but after completing the assembly sequence, they work well.

Step 10

With the Saito 100 and some other 4 strokes as well, the throttle pushrod has to exit the fuse at an angle to get out to the throttle arm, as the arm is outside the fuselage. I bent this pushrod slightly to make the pushrod move easier on the throttle, and it worked much better than leaving it straight.

Section 16: Control Throw Recommendations

It will be necessary in most cases to use 1” long servo arms to get the high rate control throws listed.

Section 17: Balancing the Ultra Stick 60

With the Saito 100 and standard JR equipment installed where stated in the manual, the balance came out a little nose heavy. It required 3.5 oz mounted on the top rear of the horizontal tail to balance properly. This is not excessive, and should work out very well, especially with the Saito 100.
