Some of the biggest news in the RC ARF industry in 2013 was the return of the SIG FOUR-STAR 60 ARF to production. And, not only is back, but it is back in a big way with major upgrades!
The first is the name change. The old FOUR-STAR 60
is now called the 4-STAR 64 EG. The "64" in the names indicates the wingspan of the airplane. Yes, the new 4-STAR 64 is shorter! Clipping the wing has been a common modification that Four-Star pilots have been doing for years, cutting off the last rib bay at the tip of each wing panel. The clipped wing improves the roll rate and overall maneuverability, with no loss of stability and slow flight characteristics. The 4-STAR 64 EG ARF still lands like a trainer!
The "EG" in the name means the airplane is designed to accommodate either Electric or Glow Power. Fly with a 2-stroke glow engine, a 4-stroke glow engine, or a brushless outrunner electric motor and lipo battery. It'll fly any way you like it!
All the control surfaces (ailerons, elevator, and rudder) have been enlarged for better control response at slow speeds.
The canopy has been streamlined for a sleeker, modern design. That's another change that many Four-Star pilots have been doing themselves - replacing the original "high bubble" canopy for a lower one. However, if you still prefer the traditional bubble shaped Four-Star 40 canopy, you can still get that as an option. They both fit perfectly! Available in Red or Yellow.
Other upgrades include a molded fiberglass cowling and a removable hatch on top of the fuselage for quick access to the battery/tank compartment. Also the top of the fuselage between the canopy and the fin (the turtle deck) is now fully-sheeted with balsa for smoother appearance and greater strength.
We are very excited about the changes made to the 4-STAR 64 EG ARF, and we hope you are too. Order your SIG 4-STAR EG ARF today to fly the newest version of America's favorite "second airplane!"
