Sig 4 Star 40When developing the Four-Star 40, SIG had two main design goals: First of course was impeccable flight performance, including the ability to perform any aerobatic whoop-dee-doo you can throw at it. Second, it had to be ultra-simple to build without looking like a "box with wing".

Special notes about electric from Dave: This model makes an excellent electric conversion. I've seen many of them done and they fly well. Plenty of wing area and a light weight design. Below are my suggestions for a range of practical power systems.
