It's the popular, proven Stik like you've never seen before! The "Stik" design has been a favorite of sport pilots for years, offered in different sizes with different power options and in kit, ARF and Rx-R versions. Great Planes™ Giant Big Stik XL incorporates everything that has made this iconic aircraft so popular, with the added stability and visibility of a 96.5" wingspan and the option of gasoline or electric power. Final assembly is still easy and straightforward, and its flight characteristics make it a joy to fly.

  • Giant-scale proportions accentuate the Giant Big Stik XL's unmistakable looks and smooth flying characteristics.
  • Whether you choose a gas or electric power system, you'll have plenty of power for predictable sport flying, and both are easy to install.
  • A large hatch removes quickly for easy LiPo battery changes or access to the fuel tank.
  • Transportation to and from the field is made easier with the two-piece wing that connects with a joiner tube.
