The Tiger Moth can be best described as Iconic, it was developed from the very succesful Gipsy Moth and designed by Geoffrey De Havilland in the 1930s to meet Air Ministry specifications for a new preliminary Trainer for the RAF. The most noticable feature that distinguishes the Tiger Moth from similar DH bi-planes is the distinctive swept upper wing, which allowed better access for a pilot while wearing a parachute. Tiger Moths are still popular to this day with many examples still being flown for pleasure the world over, truly a classic aircraft from the Golden Age of Aviation.
This nice size Tiger Moth has the look of a traditional scratch built kit, however, make no mistake, this is a nice quality and thoroughly modern ARF that has been designed for Electric Power. Easy to construct, the Tiggie features traditional pull/pull tailfeathers and a simple but effective wing rigging system that still allows for wing removal when required. The Tiger Moth also features a very large battery tray and hatch located on the under-side for easy and fast battery changing. The quality of the included & comprehensive hardware is excellent as is the quality of the pre-applied covering and painted glass-fiber cowl.
The Tiger Moth is one of those models that every pilot needs to own at least once, there is nothing quite like a relaxing afternoons flying with this classic aircraft, it looks great on the ground and magnificent in the air, so grab your flying helmet, goggles and Irvine jacket and re-live the golden age of aviation!
