just got through building the king cobra a couple of weeks ago and i had an old OS 61 long stroke that i put in it and it pulls the plane with ease, this plane flies like a pattern plane and performs a solid knife-edge. the plane turned out weighing about 8 1/2 lbs. painted and ready to fly. but i was surprised at how quick it takes off and how slow it will land .

RE: Sig King Cobra
You did a nice job on this one!  Did you use retracts?  I think the King is one of the better sport/pattern birds - I'm going to get one of those kits someday <g>

i used fixed gear because i fly off a grass field and i would highly recommand this kit to somebody who likes to build their own plane.
here are some more recent pictures of my plane with the decals on it.
thanks bill

I don't know that it's possible to appreciate just how good of a design that the King Kobra is until you've actually flown one. 

It's a fully aerobatic airframe that is very comfortable flying at high speeds and tracks like it's on rails, yet it exhibits no bad habits while flying at any speed and lands as easily and slowly as any basic low wing trainer.  It looks amazing on the ground or in the air, and the more you fly one the more you fall in love with it.

RE: Sig King Cobra
Thanks for sharing your nice looking King Cobra and the video was good too. I have had one of these planes before about 20 years ago that I had a guy build for me that I ended up selling, but I built this one and I am not going to sell this one. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Bill

Kougar? Did someone mention Kougar? hehe, here is my just completed Kougar....

Have just started a King Kobra,figured it was time next for the big brutha! Hope to have an OS91fx pulling it around,have glued the skins to the cores and just finishing sheeting the tail,but can't wait till she starts to look like a real airframe. Love Sig Kits!

Yours looks great Wild Bill,congratulations!

Nice looking cougar you have there tassiemank, which the cougar is just a smaller version of the king cobra. Which i think they both fly really well. Thanks for sharing. Bill

Nice Kougar, are those retracts or strut covers, whatever they are they do look good!
Nice job.</p>

RE: Sig King Cobra
Thanks Wildbill and Smoknrv4, they are Robart strut covers and really are worth fitting for the look, have the larger set ready for the KK when the time comes,we fly off short grass but the suface underneath is not that smooth and it really seems to bring most mech retracts unstuck at some stage,might be the first flight or the twentieth but I like to not have to worry about with fixed gear.So the KK will also be fixed(besides I am sure an OS91 willtake care of a littlewheel drag in flight hehe) I have an Ultrasport 60 next on the build queue after the KK whichI intend to put retracts in,not mech tho probably Robart 605HD pnuematics or some Aussie made pnuematics from Custom Retracts in Australia which look to be mighty tuff, but that will be a tail dragger and not a foam wing so I will brave it with that bird.

So whats the consesus with the pushrods for a KK? Solid or some sort of GoldNrod's? I used solid on the Kougar but might go with bracing inside the fuselage and some GoldNrod's for elev and rudder....

RE: Sig King Cobra
I'd build a servo compartment in the tail, so you could have short pushrods for more positive control. and it helps balance it out too.
