A Compact "Hands Off" Trainer

This compact version of the KADET SENIOR is designed for modelers who have a small car or apartment-size workshop. The KADET SENIORITA features the same forgiving flight characteristics of the larger SENIOR, but in a smaller package.

Both the KADET SENIOR and KADET SENIORITA are also popular with experienced fliers who are tired of the nerve racking panic that can accompany a faster model. The KADET SENIORITA flies so slowly and gently that just about anyone can handle it on their very first try! If the student pilot gets confused, merely let go of the control sticks and the KADET SENIORITA will recover itself and return back to level flight.

Pilots of all skill levels get a real charge out of the pure flying pleasure that a KADET can provide. It's the perfect model for out-of-the-rut, pure fun flying. Slide in for a main gear only touch and go. Fly backwards. Catch a thermal. Pylon race with other KADETS. Formation flying. Follow the leader. These airplanes are so slow, stable, and predictable that you'll find yourself doing things you never thought possible before.
