Sig Kadet Junior - Radio control sport / trainer model. Discontinued kit from Sig.
Quote: - "The Kadet junior is a reduced size version of the famed Kadet (oz2950)
, designed specially for 2 and 3 channel flying. It has the same fine flying characteristics of Its larger buddy and is intended for beginners learning to fly or for all round sport and fun flying. While the frame work may seem at first glance to be more complicated than some competing models, we believe this illustrated, step-by-step book will make it just as easy for novice builders. The model is strong and light because of this slightly more complex structural design and you will find the small extra assembly time will worth the improved performance and durability.
RADIO EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS: Selection of radio equipment should be based on the amount of money you wish to spend, the type of airplanes you intend to be flying and your future goall. If you plan to stay in the hobby and work up to larger airplanes with complete controls. It might be best to consider purchase of a four, or more, channel set In the beginning. It could be used with three servos to fly the Kadet Junior and later Installed in an intermediate aileron trainer like the Sig Komander or Kavalier with the simple addition of another servo. This would eliminate the necessity of disposing of an initial Investment in beginner's equipment of less than 4 channels and buying a new set when your flying skills are ready for an advanced model. Use of 3 channel of control gives the best results with the Kadet Junior. One or two channel equipment can be used with less flexibility in control. On one channel, use rudder control only. For two channels use rudder and elevator.
ENGINE SIZE: The prototype Kadet Juniors were flown with the K&B .19, Fuji .19 and OS .25. On less than 3 channels a .15 cu. in. engine is adequate and, if the model is not overweight, on 3 channels also. Remember that a muffler will reduce engine power and allowance should be made for this. If you live at high altitude engines will not develop power equivalent to that delivered at sea level. Beginners should fly .19 and .25 powered Kadet Juniors with the engine throttled back after takeoff until they are familiar with the airplane and have some flying time. On two channels, throttle .19 and .25 engines back by locking the carburetor in the desired position. Size .15 engines on 2 channel models can be flown at full throttle."
