SIG Kadet Senior Sport ARF

I'm surprised this info hasn't hit the boards yet. Check out Sig's newest offering. And it is available in red or blue.

Sig sure has come out with a number of new awesome planes as of late. I am in the process of building a T-Clips right now and am very impressed with its quality.

Wow,

Looks cool. Too bad I bought a new Sig Senior ARF a few months ago. I like the top hatch and tail dragged gear on the new Senior Sport. I wonder if I could buy a Senior Sport fuse and have the best of both worlds.

I converted my Kadet Senior ARF to a tail dagger and slapped a 15cc gas engine on it. At nearly $100 cheaper than the regular Kadet Senior, the Sport is much more attractive.

Too bad they didn't add another 2 inches to the span, then it could actually be flown at big bird events (80" minimum for a non scale plane)

My last Senior was kit-built, tail dragger, Saito .45. Lovely airplane. I really wish they'd make a kit of the Sr. Sport. However, I have the wing and tail of my last Senior, so a fuse would not be hard to construct. I'd e power it, but that gets kind of expensive at that size motor.

I really like what they did with the Senior.
This Is mine that i built from the kit over 20 years ago.
Just recently converted it to electric.
It is the original 3 channel version.
If i didn't have it, i would buy the new one.

Wow, this must be a popular plane. Two threads already in one day on it.

Except for the pants and cowl, it's a Kadet Senior. Kits still available at sigmfg.com for less than $100. You could add FG wheelpants and cowl for much less than another $100..

And after checking, you could use a 3s battery pack and around $40 motor (headsuprc.com)

Looks like this would make a good motor for it.

Isn't the original Kadet Senior RET? This one appears to have ailerons.

Yes, and they finally changed it to a tail dragger which it should have been from the beginning. The change to conventional LG and ease of changing out the battery is a big improvement over both the original and the later version with ailerons. May need to add this one to the "want" list.

Yeah, it sounds like Sig has been paying attention to how the older kits were often built.

I have an old senior, which was built as a tail dragger, with ailerons and flaps. Evo 1.00 that I got with it hasn't been particularly reliable, and is way more power than the plane needs.

Maybe someday I'll put a gas 4 stroke in it.

Anyhoo, Sig's ARF's seem to be of excellent quality. I have one of the 110" Rascals with flaps, powered by Syssa 30. It's a really nice airframe.

I just ordered one. I'd been wanting a Senior for awhile and with the hatch and landing gear now it was an easy choice. I had one years ago that I converted to electric.

I am thinking to use an Eflite Power 46 with a 5 cell battery (I use two 5 cells in series for another airplane). Should be adequately but not over powered.

I'm really looking forward to this airplane. Should be a lot if fun!

Cool! You may be the 1st one here on RCG!

I just saw that Innov8tive Designs has 30% on Cobra motors.
