The Pulse does fly quite well for an ARF.

Hi!
One of the best low winged sport plane today is the Kyosho Calmato Sports!

Hi,

I did the Product Review on the SIG LT 25 for Radio Control Modeler Magazine a few years ago. It never got published because RCM went out of production. I still have the article that I wrote, and here are a few photos. Super trainer, I taught several modelers how to fly using that airplane.

Great Flying airplane - Very light build, I flew mine with a Saito .30 four stroke and it did just fine.

But if you prefer a BARF, the Pulse is a Great Flying model.

Hi Ken,

Was that LT-25 article ever published anywhere else? I have an LT-25 kit and would be interested in other folks opinions, not to sidetrack this thread.

the LT series are GREAT trainers!!!! and with a couple of mods, are GREAT fun fly and play around airplanes!!!! by all means, build away and have a great time!!! i flatened the wing some, added aileron, elevator and rudder size and overpowered it a lot......then it became a trainer, funfly and school yard demo machine!!!! i tried to up load a pic, but the file type wasn't supported.....

if you'd like to see it, pm me and i'll send a pic....

take care, bill

I've had a ton of LT-40's but this would be the first LT-25. It's probably going to go on back burner till next year anyway. But you're right, cut down the dihedral a little bit and it's a great sport plane and they're fun to build. I'm going to try to start my 5th LT-40 but it's going to be unrecognizingly kitbashed.

Ken, is your LT-25 Review article available for reading? Sorry that it didn't get published in RCM. It's been almost 7 years now, and I still miss that magazine. Not trying to get off the original thread....
