The 'not completely horizontal tail' was all the rage on pattern ships of the day... it's called 'anhedral', kinda the opposite of dihedral.

Brother-in-law had some Spare parts laying around, Plenty of wings and not a fuse in the house. and at $45 and up a piece they werent in the budget. Two Nice Solid Sticks and a plywood motor mount later and we had two Great flying planes. These are alot more agile and fun than they originally were.

Below are a couple of pics of my last scratch build 'conventional' plane (i scratch build a bunch of flying wings). Its basically a blown up Tiny-X, but with a KF step cut from the symmetrical airfoi. Wing is EPS foam, boom is an arrow shaft and tial feathers & ailerons are FFF. Power is from a TP 2408-21 rewound to a 34 turn equivalent swinging a GWS 9x5HD prop (or same prop cut down to 8x5 for faster climbs and longer flights). AUW is about 9 oz and can do nearly everything in the book except knife-edge.

Here is the latest video of my scratch built Speed Stick. Unfortunately, it was also the last one as a high-G manoeuvre at the end split the wing a bit. My favorite plane is now hangared, but a new one is deff on the way. A good project for the winter...)

Very nice!! I love how a plane can look like another, then perform soo differently. Now I know why you called it a Speed Stick.
