Now and then an airplane comes along with such classic graceful lines that it has an almost magical effect on pilots. A perfect combination of form and function. The Sig R/C Rascal is that kind of model! This design is right out of the early days of full scale and model aviation. Great looks, outstanding flight performance, and real versatility make the Rascal just about the sweetest design you’ve ever flown.
A Marvel of Modern Kit Engineering!
The R/C Rascal is almost completely laser-cut, allowing you to assemble this airplane quickly and accurately. The unique wing structure, possible only with laser cutting technology, makes the beautiful and efficient elliptical wing planform really easy to build. The quality Sig balsa and plywood parts have been factory graded for proper weight and strength. Full-size plans leave nothing to the imagination and the complete, fully illustrated instruction manual takes you quickly through each step. Scale-like decals, a full-color instrument panel graphic and a beautiful set of molded wheel pants give the R/C Rascal that subtle look of Authenticity. This kit is literally fun to build!
