GWS Tigermoth Slow
Before they went on to
distinguish themselves in the Battle of Britain, many a Royal Air Force fighter
ace learned the fundamentals of flight at the controls of DeHavilland's
venerable Tiger Moth. Its forgiving flight manners and elegant lines endeared
many a young English aviator in much the same way as the J-3 Cub enchanted
thousands of novice pilots in the U.S.. More than six decades later the Tiger
Moth continues to symbolize the elegance and adventure of flight for thousands
of aviation enthusiasts.
The geared motor and high-efficiency prop that GWS provides with the kit gives the Tiger Moth exceptional climb performance. In our tests we could climb from 5' off the floor to the base of a 40' ceiling in just 7 seconds.
To get the most out of the Tiger Moth, we strongly suggest you use GWS's Pico Sub-Micro Flight Pack. It includes a 4-channel FM micro-receiver, 2-Pico Sub-Micro Servos, a 7.2V 150mAh 6-cell stick pack (optional 8.4V 7-cell pack available separately), and a micro-electronic speed control. It is available in both JR and Futaba versions.
The GWS Tiger Moth is
easily one of the finest slow flyers we've come across to date. Not only is it
an outstanding reproduction of a British aviation classic, but it features the
same charming flight characteristics that made the full-scale Tiger Moth such a
classic to begin with. This one is not to be missed.
