Sig KavalierThe heart of this beautiful airplane is it's superior wing design! The light, strong, built-up balsa structure incorporates built-in wingtip washout for superior stability and control. Even expert pattern fliers are impressed with the Kavalier's smooth, responsive flying ability. Make perfectly coordinated, in-the-groove turns. Fly through any aerobatic maneuver with rock solid precision. Flare out for slow, main gear only landings with no tendency to stall or snap roll. Highly recommended as a student pilot's second model! Balsa fuse, tail and wing with built in washout. Build it bolt on or rubber band mount wing with semi-symmetrical airfoil. Steerable nose gear, pre-bent aluminum landing gear and rugged plastic cowling and canopy included as are glow engine mount, full size plans and photo illustrated instruction book. Specifications:

Notes from Dave: This is absolutely my favorite glow sport ship of all time. It's a classic kit. There was just nothing more exciting on trainer night than to have a graduated student come up with one of these for his 2nd or 3rd aircraft and ask me to test fly it. I dare say, I'd put a whole tank through the model and say, yes, it's still my all time favorite! The model is very pattern like for it's size, super smooth and yet retains all the personality of weekend sport ship. Friendly yet aerobatic and even aggressive if you set the throws for more spirited performance. They land like a dream, are utterly trustworth in any situation. You'll love it as I do.
