AMR Monster Stick 150

When I asked if anyone had any ideas for my next project legoman mentioned doing the AMR Monster Stick 150 and after looking around a lot I ended up emailing the fellow that designed it in Canada and he ask me to call him. We had a nice chat and he's going to help me get some better pictures to use in 3ds Max for a template. So I guess this is my next project. I like Sticks (this one is a Stick not Stik) and the color scheme by Pedro looks pretty cool to me so that's what I'll use. So here's a picture of the starting point and a link to the product page and build thread with the color scheme I'm planning to use. But as always things change some times so nothing is set in stone right now.

Here's a link to the AMR Monster Stick 150 product page with Specs.

Here's a link to the build thread I'm planning to use the color scheme from.

I thought the CS on the AMR page and the one on the flyinggiants page was the same?

Monster stick 150, now that is an interesting project, will be great with your radial up front.
I guess I will have to buy a bigger monitor to fit the plane on. ???

There you go a good reason to get a new 4k monitor with a 2080ti to go with it. I might rework the valve train on my radial to look more like a Moki 180.

Duh.. Dumb ole me I just thought the CS wasn't finished yet so the text on the wings wasn't there. But I didn't notice the checkers were missing on the AMR page. Oh well we both like the one in the build thread and that's the one I was going to do. Will I put the text on the wing, dunno at this point. Maybe.. maybe not. Here's another picture from page 11.

You know I think I want to keep the color scheme open for now. I've seen a few interesting color schemes for it and I might even come up with my own. So no the color scheme isn't written in stone. Maybe a baby blue theme with chrome moon hubcaps. <just kidding>

It probably will be under powered with a moki 180 it will need a 215 or 250 maybe even a 300cc moki. The 150cc to 170cc is for 2 stroke motors thus about 15 to 17 HP a moki 180 is about 8 or 9 HP

Okay, will you work with me on what radial to use and do you have engine profiles for them? The graphics model is the same for them, right? I'm going to model my radial a little but not redo it.. just tweak the top of the valve train where the Moki is open.

I rotated the picture of the Monster Stick and used it as a template to reshape my Stick. I reworked the wings to match the monster stick and then copied them and used them to create an hstab with an airfoil. I also created a new tail wheel bracket to match the one they use and reworked the main gear to match there's too. So lots of work on it today. I'm stopping now but I thought I'd upload a picture for you.

I have torque curves for all of moki's radial and a few of them with the high rev valve kit. Which is a carbon fiber pushrod and different spring and maybe some thing else I am not remembering that lets them rev higher. let me know which one you want and I'll supply the engine or I could send all of them and let you test them out.

For now just send me the one you think is right for the plane. Then after I get it going I'll send it to you and you can be the judge of what engine it needs.

Here you go there is a 5 and 7 cylinder option. remove the .txt extension and place it in documents/realflight 8/vehicles/engines. 32x18 2 blade prop or 30x18 3 blade should work for both

I worked on the Monster Stick some more tonight. It looks like I'm ready to upscale the wingspan to 144 inches now. This seems weird it feels like I'm back where I started modeling wise.
