SIG SE for a Second airplane???

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I heard from tons of people that a Sig Somethin' Extra was a good second airplane. But I have a Kadet Senior (kit), so it doesnt have alerons, and I was wondering if I will have trouble flying an SE???

Thanx in advance!

You will likely have some issues. What doesn't make the SE a good second choice, especially for someone without aileron experience, is that it has no self correcting tendencies. This makes it great for what it was intended for but no so good for training on. You could certainly pick a more suitable (I didn't say better) airplane as a second airplane.

After having flown my Sig 4 star 40 quite a bit recently, and having a lot of time on the fun fly types (like the SE) I suggest a more traditional low wing plane like the 4 star.

Get used to flying basic aerobatics with that (or a similar type plane) and then go to a more capable fun fly type IMO.

if its got a wing or two and an engine - I like it!

Some good second airplane choices are.

Sig 4 Star 40.
Goldberg Tiger 2 or 60

If you don't mind staying high wing for your second plane, you can also look at

Hobbico Avistar
An Ugly Stick

These are although both high wing, but Avistar with semi symmetrical and Stick with fuly symmetrical, you can learn aerobatics with them and they still fly very stable and land gently.
