The legendary SIG Kadet Senior is widely-recognized as the finest R/C trainer plane ever made. Just wait until the hobby gets a hold of the redesigned SIG Kadet Senior SPORT! The new Sport is a taildragger airplane that features strong, formed aluminum landing gear.
The SIG Kadet Senior is one of the most versatile R/C model airplanes ever designed! The success of the Kadet Senior is not only due to its wonderful trainer plane characteristics, but also to its versatility and relaxing flight characteristics. It is one of the few trainer planes that will never be outgrown as the pilots’ skill level grows. Originally intended for training, its light wing loading, inherent stability and slow flight speed combine to give the student pilot time to think, react, and learn. However, over the years the Kadet Senior has also proven to be a multi-purpose workhorse – float-flying, banner or glider tow, airborne video, parachute drop, night flying with add-on lights, and just about any other load-carrying task is easy for the giant Kadet Senior Sport. The huge 2-piece wing provides massive lifting ability, even when flown using .40-.46 size engines, or equivalent electric power. It is perfect for R/C pilots of any skill level who want a relaxing flying session - doing leisurely touch and go landings at the speed of a walk on a beautiful calm summer evening.
This latest rendition of the venerable Kadet Senior Sport has been "sporterized" with taildragger landing gear and wheel pants. Converting Kadet Seniors into tail dragger planes has been the #1 modification for years. Now, it is available to everyone in a model that is sure to satisfy the radio control airplane hobby.
The Kadet Senior Sport is the latest SIG plane in their SIGnature “EG” Series – giving everyone the flexibility to fly electric or glow without any modifications. You will only find this innovation in SIG R/C aircraft.
