New GWS plane in the Hanger

I just added a new plane to my Hanger. The X-Moth is a Pico Tiger Moth powered by a GWS 2205/15. The battery is a 2S1320 mah Thunder Power, receiver is a Berg 4L, 8040 HD prop, and the ESC is a Phoenix 18. The cowel is being painted so I left it off for now.

This plane is a blast to fly and will go slow or, rip straight up if you like. I maidened it tonight and got about 15 minutes of flying in before it got dark. I probably could have flown a few more minutes but my guess is about 15 to 18 minutes with this motor and battery. The all up weight with battery is a hefty 10.5 ounces but it flys really nice and is very stable and responsive. Landings are a breeze even dead stick is easy. Video comming soon.

In order to make Pico Tiger Moth to be RTF package, GWS will try to modify tooling mode soon to be able to use 10x10mm wood for GWS 22xx BL motor.

one of version will come with GWS2205 BL motor.

Original IPS version and EDP150 version will also take into considered.

May be later on, even IPS will be able to come with a 1230BL motor as well.

Thanks Mr. Lin, your products have come a long way and just keep getting better. Looking forward to building a GWS-38 next.

I totally agree. I have most of the GWS kits produced...just a few more to try, plus I have multiples already of my favorites. I have my second corsair in the works, 2nd formosa, etc...
Just make sure and not lose the beauty of the original pico TM...slow, steady, lightweight, gracious flying machine. While we like to hop things up, I think I would be saddened if there was no original slow flyer available. There is just something about it's unaltered beauty....

Ken, I also have a stock TM with IPS power and an intermediate one with a small outrunner. Each airplane has it's own unique flight envelope and each one is as much fun as the other. Having said that, after flying a stock TM for several years I wanted to try something new. That's what the hobby is all about.

I think the Moth looks great John. I was flying my Pico and my TM400 yesterday. The pico has a 21gm cd rom type outrunner on two cells and the TM400 has a GWS 2208 on three cells. I enjoy the ability of both of them, and particularly the Pico to fly by real slow and like Ken I think that's a great feature. Having said that the big Moth has more presence, looks more convincing and will do a lovely taxi and go.......

The slow fly characteristics of the SlowStick doesn't come even close to lighting my fire but I'd love to see another characterful slow fly from the GWS stable.

This has character and its unusual among WWI bipes in having a reasonably long nose to help with CG without adding weight. How about it Mr Lin?
