Gws pico tiger moth motor mount help

Hi.

I glued the fuselage together without doing anything with the stick mount for the motor.

How should it lay?

when i test fit it, there seems a lot of movement.

Should i just hold the stick ( when i am looking FACING the front of the plane, head on ) down and right to get the right offset?

Can i put ailerons on it?

Hi Dean,

Rudder+dihedral works great on this Pico TM, aileron could not work well on it unless you glue depron sheets to the bottoms of its wings.

And 1.5 - 2 degrees down thrust and 1 - 1.5 degrees right thrust are required on this PTM, also make sure that you look at it from its tail to its nose when telling the right thrust.

You'd have to work on it more if you prefer having both wings removable.

Fantastic. Thanks, Chen.

Thats what i needed to know, which way to look at the plane when putting the down and right.

I have no idea how do to the degrees, what would be the amount in mm.?

Its a smaller plane than i though, so the wings can just stay on i guess.


You have been VERY helpful, thank you.

I wish we had more GWS planes in New Zealand.

Would LOVE a stealth/b2!

Hi Dean,

The wood stick is 8mm wide, so draw a center line on it first. I did tell my buddies to apply 1.0 mm for both thrusts when hating to tell the degrees accurately. And be sure to use the trims if the thrusts are not enough, as the motor and prop used might make it differently.

Hope these would be helpful.

p.s. Please be reminded to view the included manual first. It tells you more.

I already glued the mount in and just held it as far down and right as i could and it seems ok.

Be sure to put flying wires on it out of dental floss or Dacron fishing line. The wings bend easily without it.
