Sig T-Clips EP"T-CLIPS" is no ordinary clipped wing Taylorcraft. Originally a stock 1939 Taylorcraft, this is the only clipped wing T'craft in the world currently flying airshows with an original size engine. Airshow pilot Erik Edgren refers to this as "Twistin It Old School". SIG is proud to team up with Erik and offer a new R/C model of his one-of-a-kind airplane.
Designed 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.
Voted by pilots as the "Best New R/C Airplane At SEFF 2013".

Special notes about electric from Dave: I've been very excited about this fine model hitting the streets. It's an excellent high wing aerobatic model. Scale looks with a wide speed envelope. I have done an extensive work up of power systems I could recommend below. You don't get this kind of analysis from anybody else, even SIG. Think of lower capacities as the cell count increases, for 6S, I'm thinking about high quality 2200's, think about larger packs up to 4200 for 3S, maybe a 3300-3700 for 4S, a 2200-3300 for 5S. Some alteration of battery tray may be required and is not investigated as of this moment.
