If you are looking for an R/C model that is easy to build and exciting to fly, the KOUGAR is for you! This sleek jet-style airplane has a fully symmetrical wing section for smooth pattern-like aerobatics. The KOUGAR will do every stunt in the book, yet it is not difficult for low-time pilots to handle. Ample wing area and a thick airfoil provide outstanding slow speed stability.

Built-in wing "washout" eliminates tip stalling, enabling the KOUGAR to be slowed down to a walk for realistic nose-high landings. The KOUGAR is highly recommended as an introduction to low-wing flying and for beginning pattern competitors.
Don't let the KOUGAR's racy lines worry you. Construction of this sport model is simple and straight forward. The load-carrying and equipment-carrying portion of the fuselage is basic balsa box structure.
Once that is built, you add a molded plastic fuselage top, a molded clear plastic canopy, and a molded plastic cowling, to give the KOUGAR its modern jet-style shaped. The wings are white foam core with 1/16 in. thick balsa sheeting. Tail surfaces are sheet balsa.

Since the KOUGAR is a sport model, not a scale model, no decals are included in the kit. However, after numerous requests, SIG does have available several decal sheets that make it easy for you to decorate your KOUGAR to look like the world famous U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds. You can duplicate either the early period silver Thunderbird scheme or the white "team number" color scheme that the Thunderbirds use today.
