Default Sig Rascal...40 size??

I saw the red one at the hobby shop the other day.
It's also available in blue, so I'm waiting for one of them
to come in so I can decide which one I want.

I have been flying the small electric one since last Summer.
It flies great, but could use ailerons. The big one does have
ailerons.

The .40-sized is set up for an inverted engine, so I may opt
for electric on it as well, say a geared speed 700?

What about going to one of the brushless Jeti motors from Hobby Lobby. Or better yet...go to

and check this out.

How many cells do you think the 40 size would need? 12 or 14?

Thanks for the link, I'll check it out...

I already have the Speed 700, so I'll probably go ahead and use it. I can always replace it with a brushless when it wears out! :>

I'll probably try 14 cells to start with, since I already have some 7-cell packs that I can hook up in series.

Default Sig Rascal 40 in Blue....

Saw this at the LHS on Friday. This is one sweet looking airplane! I love the classic looks of this plane. Then again, I'm a sucker for all the stuff that came out of the late 20's and early 30's as long as it has wheelpants. The covering on this was phenominal! I've never seen an ARF covered so well. No wrinkles, and the transparent areas look like they were machine cut. You can tell that the framework has been designed for faster construction, such as the horizontal stab is one large die cut balsa piece with lightening holes, then the stick framework is placed top and bottom, like a sandwich, and most of it is cross grain too. Makes for a very rigid airframe, and still very light! If you are wavering over whether or not to buy it, just go for it. Kinda like a Cub without the Cub......

Hi Hemikiller, Do you know what kind of engine was in the Rascal you saw?
