After a minute or so of ground-running, the Cox 010 was started again and the Hobby King Mini Stick thrown into the air. It flies.

The engine was still rich (only in its second minute of running) so power was rather low but the model handled very nicely, even if Barry didn't catch much of the flight.

Unfortunately, despite the gentle landing, the tiny plastic Cox propeller broke so I've had to order some spares and won't be flying this model again until they arrive.

However, from the limited air-time I had, I'd rate this model as a great "micro" machine with excellent handling and no bad habbits.

Once the new props arrive, I'll lean that little Cox engine out for the full 27,000 RPMs and find someone with better camera skills so we'll put the Mini Stik through its paces.
