Default 4 star 40 manual

I just bought a used Sig 4 star 40 built from a kit. I need an instruction manual for the CG, throws, and such. Can anyone help me. This is an unusual plane. It looks like an Ugly Stick. Saw it at the hobby shop and couldn't resist.
Thanks,
Indgroove

You can order the manual from Sig: Go to www.sigmfg.com/ click on Aircraft, click on Aircraft Parts RC, then Sig Aircraft Parts and Four Star 40.

4* looks like an Ugly Stick [sm=confused.gif] You sure you got the right plane?

Call SIG on the phone Monday and they will give you the CG and control throw info. They are very nice to deal with.

Now take the covering from one and put it on the other and you will have a 4 star 40 with an ugly stick look.

Indgroove,

Based on my 4* 40 ARF instructions (Probably the same):

Elevators 1/2" Up and Down - 1" Total
Ailerons 5/8" Up and Down - 1 1/4" Total
Rudder 1" Left and Right - 2" Total
CG is 2-15/16" behind the leading edge (Center of main spar)

Hope this helps,
KW_Counter
