Default SIG-Somethin-Extra

Looking around and ran across this one. Looks like something I would enjoy flying. Any comments from those that have flown it or speculation of flight characteristics?

This is very close to my style

It is a great all around funfly plane if you like to throw a plane around in the air and just enjoy yourself. It is a very stable plane but does require the use of expo and dual rates in order fly it comfortably and not have to fight the ailerons on takeoff and landing. It does wicked inverted flat spins.

Agree with what was said above. I would add it is not great at knife edge. The tail is just to short. I've seen people make the rudder bigger and this helps but it's still not great. This is the only shortcoming I've found with it. It does nothing to surprise you. I've flown them with Saito .72 and .82 power. Along with ST 51 and OS55 for power. The Saito 82 is my favorite for it even though the install on the throttle linkage was a bear.
