Thunder Tiger "Mr. Mulligan"
I just finished this Thunder Tiger "Mr. Mulligan" last night.
I ordered this plane on a very good sale at:
The stock model comes complete with a park 350 geared brushed motor. However I installed an ESSKAY 400 XT brushless outrunner.
The quality of the kit is very good. The plastic and vacuformed parts do need to be cut out and this takes some time.
The stock elevator linkage is done inside the tail however I didn't like the small horns supplied and also noticed the limited space to work this type of linkage therefore, I used a DuBro control horn on the elevator and did the conventional hook up on the outside. I also used a DuBro control horn for the rudder.
I also used an old spinner I had in my goodies drawer. The one provided is for a smaller threaded shaft. I like the one I used since it gives it a more rugged 30's look.
Here's some of the specs:
MOTOR: ESSKAY 400 XT
ESC: CC Phoenix 25
SERVOS: (1) GWS NARO, (1) HITEC HS55
RX: BERG 4T
PROP: APC 9X4.7
Will maiden when winds cooperate and report...

I will be very interested in your results.
Beautifully packaged and presented and I think best looking 30's foamie around.
I just could not get mine to fly well and am keen to get it right.

Great video Carlos!!. I will take the right thrust offset and some rudder travel. Elevator travel is ok.
Hopefully Saturday morning wind conditions will be better than today...
