I had one of these kits a long time ago but had to sell it due to a move. Now I am kicking myself.

IIRC it was for .10 nitro, 05 electric or as a sloper. It ought to be a rocket with a nice size AXI in it. Or maybe a good sized Mega.

This plane or a better/your own version is very easy to make, especially when you use a V-bat ARF for the main wing, the rest of the planeis easy to make. Rocketman on Ebay has been selling V-bats, many of the sell for about 30.00. V-bat is also a great flying plane on it's own.

Good luck! Mickydee

I think I have 4 sets of wings for this kit in my shop- I'll look.

Anyone else remember a sweptforward main wing canard sloper that was in a magazine a few years back? I think it was grey and was a built up. Seemed like a 2 meter. He flew it behind an assembled group during a photo taken for the get together at the slope. Just wonding if anyone had more info?

Larry,

I would like to know this plant of SIG Tri-Star it contains the drawings of the ribs of the wing. I would also like to have one it copies of this plant in natural size 1:1.
Thank you

The wing is foam partially covered with balsa on the leading and trailing edges
The plans show the wings airfoil at the center section and at the wingtip. You will have to extrapolate the rest to make balsa ribs.

I added more plans on post # 14

Sig's a neat company. I'm working on a STOL based on a Sig Senorita kit. I didn't want the kit but only the prints because of the heavy redesign. It's a lot eaiser to bash existing prints rather then start from scratch.

So I called them, talked to a very nice lady and the sold me the prints for about $14.00.

Drat, now I want to build a Tri Star canard. I saw one fly once and it was really a good flyer. Print's alow you to build to electric needs and get some weight out of a heavy kit.
