SIG Somethin' Extra VS Hanger9 Twist

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I purchased the Somethin' Extra kit some time ago, before the Hanger9 Twist was introduced. Are these two planes not very similar in appearance and flight behavior?

Any comparative comments on these two planes?

I am about to clear the workbench to put the SIG kit together, but I find myself second guessing. The ARF at $120 looks very tempting to save some time an money in cost of covering and other misc materials.

Which way to go?

Personally I don't see a lot of similarities. I got a Twist for general fun fly type stuff. The price was right and it's reasonable well built. A good hack around plane.

The SE is more of a sport plane (again IMO) and can have a different flight pattern than the Twist. (e.g. I personally wouldn't do a fast fly by with a Twist and I wouldn't do an elevator landing with an SE; not saying these can't be done, just a preference) Not to mention the fact that you can build the SE to your preferences as well so there is some enjoyment in that.

Seeing as you already have the SE kit, why not just get a few rolls of monocote/ultracote and get the Twist as well.

I'm sure you'll get loads of opinions.

I JUST bought a Twist $99 US.

after looking at the inside of the box I love it.

a few changes will be made ... through out the 2-56 and replace with 4-40.

NO plastic or nylon clevises.... metal pins only.

BUT the ARF itself was GREAT.... package very well.

If travelling space is limited, finnish the extra (plug-in-wings)
If cost is a factor, buy the Twist and sell the extra. I have a Twist, my friend has an Extra, both fine aircraft to fly.
The Twist is covered and looks great out of the box, for ~$120.00, you can't go wrong!

Well, the poll results were suprisingly close. Since I already have everything here and all I have to do is sit down with it for a couple of afternoons, I will just go ahead and build the Extra. If I trash it trying something stupid this summer, then I will replace it with the Twist.

Thanks for the input!

OBTW. the SE is getting a NIB Irvine 53. Yes, the red one.
