Default 3rd Plane

I am about to buy my 3rd plane and I haven't even flown my 2nd one yet. I got rc planes in my blood. I was woundering what would be a good plane for a first time full build... and something a little orginal. I really like the sig hog bipe, but I am afraid that not even haveing built one wing... Two would be to much?.. Please let me know of some kits that nice looking and some what easy to build. I looked in the kit review section, but no one put building tips on any plane I looked at.

Thanks
Jason

Any of this Sig kits would be great. The Sig Four Star or the Sig Somethin Extra would be good. My Somethin Extra was my first kit, and it was VERY easy to build. The instructions are great too. The Four Star is the same way. The only thing you need to do on the Four Star is leave out one or two ribs on either side to make it more aerobatic. It will still land VERY slowly anyway.

I'll secong the Four Star as a first "full build" kit (as opposed to ARF, or ARC, or foam core wing.) The lazer cut parts almost fall into place.

Someone once exagerated a bit saying pour glue in box, shake, dump out completed aiirplane. But after building something like the Kadet Sr... it feels that easy.

BTW... the plans shrink a bit... so go by the precut webs for the rib spacing. saves quite a bit of time vs cutting 1/16 off each web... and the ribs will all be exactly straight. Start at the wingtp and work inward.

"Great Planes RV-4 40 Sport"

How does it build? This is going to be my first build. Does this plane slow down for landings?
