Sig Trainer Kit - can be built light enough for electro?
Digging through some old boxes and came across a Sig Kadet .40 size trainer kit and an idea hit --> Can it be built light enough by doing a few modifications to the structure to be worth an electric conversion?
Few things - I mainly fly 3s up to 2200 size packs but wouldn't mind running two in parallel to get 4400 mah.
I know electros have the power to do whatever you want and have read an article in RCM about a 40 size conversion. Just wondering about a build as it would be a cool winter project.

The Sig Kadet (now Mk II) was not the best trainer out there. It was okay as a three-channel, (rudder, elevator, throttle) but suffered when ailerons were added. It did some strange things when ailerons were input, up to and including 'aileron reversal'. In other words, the plane would actually roll in the opposite direction.
The SIG KADET SENIOR, SIG KADET SENIORITA, SIG KADET LT-40, and SIG KADET LT-25 all make worthwhile electric conversions and there is info here on RC Groups for converting most of them.
A 3S battery is not usually acceptable/useable in most "40" size conversions.
Here is an article on Glow to Electric Conversions:

Good info Ken. Had my doubts but at least its a nice box of spare balsa for other builds
Btw, the Senorita was my first kit. Flew great on a .28 Brat.

Turnigy Plush 40 or 60 ESC will handle 6S and has suitable switching BEC
