SIG T-Clips EP ARF - 2013 SEFF Best New R/C Aircraft!
“T-CLIPS” is no ordinary clipped wing Taylorcraft. This legend-in-the-making SIG model is a pure aerobatic RC ARF aircraft. This is a 60" span sport scale version of the full-scale Clipped Wing 1939 Taylorcraft airshow airplane. Designed by Steve Givens, it is flown by airshow pilot Erik Edgren, who refers to it as “Twistin’ It Old School”. SIG has teamed up with Erik for 2013 to offer a new R/C model of his one-of-a-kind airplane. Purpose built for electric power, the new SIG T-CLIPS EP is a pure aerobatic delight. It's not meant to be an exact scale model, but more of an everyday no-frills flying field favorite. This quality balsa frame ARF features a semi-symmetrical airfoil and strong light weight construction. Put in a 40-size brushless motor with a 4S battery pack and your favorite new takeoff style will be straight up! Loops, rolls, snaps, and spins are routine with the T-CLIPS and the basis for more advanced 3D style maneuvers. This airplane's acrobatic repertoire will be sure to mesmerize at the next R/C fly-in!
Comes in Erik Edgren replica Black/Red color scheme.
