Default SIG Kadet EP-42 Considered a Park Flyer?

Hi. I'm considering getting one these as an alternative to my glow-powered plane for convenient flying at a nearby large school yard. Is it considered a park flyer?

Thanks.

I just purchased a Kadet EP 42, I don't know the answer to your question myself. Sorry no one has answered, I'd like to know the answer myself.

The Kadet could be flown in a large park, but it certainly is not in the category of a Slow Stick type aircraft. I actually recommend flying it from a regular model airplane field, especially if you modify it by using a brushless motor like I do! BTW, it is a great flyer, and capable ao decent aerobatics with the addition of a good powerplant--- I use a Mega 400 brushless and 3 cell LiPoly . Have fun!!!

What kind of ESC do you use? Is the prop directly driven or geared? And what kind of prop?

I'm new to all this. My son, who flies much better than me, has a Kadet EP wants to move up. I'm wondering how to upgrade this plane.

Thanks.

I use a Jeti JES045 controller and a 9x5 prop, direct (no gearbox) The motor is a 6turn Mega 400 brushless, and a 1500 3 cell Lipo. Works great Hobby Lobby International carries all the stuff.

Good luck and "keep 'em flying"!
