Electric Sig LT-40


I am wanting to gt an Lt-40 as my next plane however I do NOT want to do it with gas/glow. I have been doing my research and I can't find much about it and it is making me aggravated so I came here as a last resort so I didn't waist anybody's time. So please help me out to try an get this plane as an electric and on a budget of about 150-200 dollars not including the actual plane kit. Thank you and if that budget is too high or low still drop some advice. Thank you for your advice and time for helping out beginner rc flyer.

1. Go to the Glow to Electric Conversion forum here https://www.rcgroups.com/glow-to-ele...nversions-247/

2. Click the search this forum link on the right side and choose the advanced search option

3. In the keywords space, type LT-40

4. Under the space, click where it says Search Entire Posts with a down arrow and change it to Search Titles Only

5. Click the Search Now button.

You should get 17 or so results on just Sig LT-40 conversion - very rich pickings

6. Ideally come back here to this thread and close it (use the Thread tools link) as you'll either find what you need in one of the LT-40 threads, or you can start a new one in that forum

They also made an LT 25, it also had a lot of electric conversions. That might fit your budget a bit better. It's still a pretty big plane at 63" wingspan

ARF costs less and no conversion required.


Are you building a wood kit or getting an ARF. By the time you buy all the glue, hardware, extra wood for conversion and covering the ARF will cost much less by the time you get it flying. Thae the money you save and get a high quality motor and radio. Tower recommends the Rimfire 32 motor and 4s 4000 to 5000 LiPo battery.

Most ESC's with built-in BEC will be all you need for sport flying. Let us know what ESC you are thinking of getting.

I see that Tower Hobbies has a link to the old PDF manual. SIG has made some improvements. SIG websight has the correct manual

Not needed, but for something that size I'd go with a separate BEC. They're not expensive and provide a lot more power than ESC's built in BECs since you're probably using big servos. They're not expensive anyway.
