RC History's Most Popular R/C Trainer Design - Built for Electric or Glow Power!

NEW for 2016! Now available in Green, as well as traditional Black/Red color schemes. The SIG KADET LT-40 EG ARF follows the long tradition of the Kadet R/C trainer airplanes. It maintains the signature Kadet stability which automatically corrects itself when the controls are released - a simply invaluable feature on a trainer plane. You won't find another trainer or leisure plane that can fly slower due to its large size and light wing loading features. The slow speed capabilities allow beginner pilots more time to think, to react, and to understand what the airplane is doing. This speeds up the learning process and gets new pilots flying like a pro in no time...and keeps experienced pilots yearning for one more flight!

What is new with the KADET LT-40 EG is it is a KADET that has been redesigned to accept either electric or glow power. No matter what your power preference, you can still learn to fly with a KADET.

NO FOAM! The SIG KADET LT-40 features authentic balsa wood construction, making it lighter, stronger, and more durable than other popular trainers. It is meticulously covered with UltraCote® premium polyester material. The KADET LT-40 is designed for fast assembly with a minimum number of parts, and the detailed photo-illustrated SIG instruction manual guides you easily through each step. Kavan wheels, SIG Easy-Hinges, pushrods, engine mounts, and Du-Bro fuel tank are all included hardware. 

The Perfect Airplane for Learning to fly R/C! Legendary Kadet Flight Performance: 

  • Slow Flight Speed
  • Hands-Off Stability
  • Easy to Fly
  • Light Wing Loading

Much Better Than I Expected
I just received my Kadet LT-40 this week and was very pleased to find a much improved airplane over what is described on this website. The wing is now 2 piece with a jointer tube and you do not need to glue it. CA hinges are used and installed but not glued. There are 5 servos required rather than 4 but you can still use a 4 channel setup with a Y-harness for the 2 aileron servos. The hatch is much bigger and easier to get to the gas tank or battery if you need. It sis attached with magnets also. The decals are already installed for you. The nose gear bearing is already installed on the front of the firewall and the nose gear already has a flat spot for the locking screw. The horizontal stab already has the covering removed for mounting on the tail and for mounting the vertical stab. Metal clevis are supplied for the push rods so you do not need to do z-bends These are all great improvements. I am now having fun doing the assembly.

First Experience with R/C Airplanes
My first experience with r/c airplanes was with a SIG Kadet LT-40 Electric. This truly is an ideal "trainer" airplane as it is easy to control, forgiving, yet lets you experience the thrill of flying. There isn't another trainer I would recommend more highly than a SIG Kadet. It should be the first airplane for every aspiring R/C pilot.

Happy Flying ...
Easy to build even though some of the instructions are not very clear. Once it was built I had it up in the sky and flying smoothly.
