RE: LETS SAVE SIG BEFORE THEY GET SWALLOWED BY THE BIG TWO!!!

Some planes are just designed for flight first and looks second. The sig sport planes I've flown just have a great feel in the air. Maybe it's time tto give one a try?

RE: LETS SAVE SIG BEFORE THEY GET SWALLOWED BY THE BIG TWO!!!

I had a hard time deciding which kit to get, Four Star 120, King Kobra, or the Kavalier. I want them all but it seemed the Kav was just calling my name. In the past I've been a slow builder and now...

blw, thanks for the info. What kind of issues did you have with your fin. Also does the standard rudder have enough area to do knife edges? Two servos in the wing and less dihedral sounds like a good...

RE: Top-Flite Contender

I built a Contender about 8 years ago with flaps standard wing tips and a Super Tiger .51. Easy build and a very durable plane that can fly at a snails pace if you want it to.


Happy building...

RE: LETS SAVE SIG BEFORE THEY GET SWALLOWED BY THE BIG TWO!!!

RE: LETS SAVE SIG BEFORE THEY GET SWALLOWED BY THE BIG TWO!!!

There seems to be a lot of talk about the kavalier. I'm kinda leaning towards it, especially since I was born and raised in Virginia. A good UVA cavalier scheme would be a perfect!!
