Default Sig Ryan STA-how does it fly?

Does anyone have experience with the flying characteristics? Also, what power choice did you use?
Thanks for any info

I've never owned one, but know guys who have. It flies like any other constant chord, low wing sport plane. No bad habits. If you scale it out then it will take off and land at higher speeds but still very reasonable. You'll like the plane. Don't worry about how it flies.

Thanks for that. I already started. What I have is plans and the instruction book - no "box of wood". So I will be cutting my own parts as I go along. Takes a bit longer but very satisfying.

You will want to check out this excellent build then and if you have any questions VJ will be more than happy to answer. Sig Ryan STA I was fortunate enough to see this work of art in person.

Oh yes, finished, crashed, cried, rebuilt, ready to fly again this Spring. Powered with O.S. .95 4-stroke glow - perfect choice for this plane.

Default I have a OS 95 V, I know I want the 4 stroke sound!

How did it fly? and what caused the crash?

Flew fine, for a year and 1/2. I lost control in a higher than usual wind, and down she went.

Look here, it flys like a trainer. The only thing is, mind of the landingspeed, if you are to o slow, it would do a headstand...
Always happy landing !
