Default Sig Wonder

I know that the Wonder is not a true speed plane, but for me it is fast. I maidened mine yesterday with an OS 25FX. The first flight was squirrelly for a while, then I got it trimmed and started having fun. Second flight was better with out of sight vertical rolls and the landing was smooth. The third flight was a blast until I ran out of room on the landing and snagged a small tree. Some 30 minute epoxy and it is almost ready to go again. I never knew you could have so much fun in a 5 minute flight.

Thats a cool fun fly aircraft, with some speed to it, I have plans for one, maybe I'll get to it someday, my OS .25vrdf engine would probably like it!!!

Have any pics?

Yaeh. A guy in my club flies one with a OS .25 on it, looks like about 100~110 mph, which is fast for a small plane.

Here is mine : OS.15 LA and 7x7 prop, ideal setup IMHO. Very easy to fly and land ; a .25 engine is much heavier, reducing the fun factor at low speeds...
