The Scoop on the Sig Lt-25

Well here is the scoop on this new plane from Sig. This plane is a winner. If you are looking for a great trainer, I recommend this one. This kit is laser cut and the pieces fit just like a glove. The only changes I made was to make it a bolt down wing, and I added a set of springs at each end of the tail wheel where the cables connect to it. This cable tail wheel is something that is new to a kit of this size. The only kits that I have built with this kind of steering was on a scale. It is easy to assemble and works great. I used a 35 OS Max engine in this plane, not the 25 to 32 size that they recommend. It is under powered with a 25 size engine unless you have a hard smooth runway to take off from, and no wind. It doesn't do well on a grass field with anything smaller than a 35. The wing is a tough one with zig zag webbing that makes for a strong and light weight wing. On a scale from 1 to 10 I give this kit a 10 all around in design and materials. This kit has everything as far as extra's. Congratulations to Sig for a great new kit.
