F5B Tiger / "Super Tiger" / hotliner


For Sale: NIB Tiger / NIB Neu 1509 1.5D 5.2 geared / NIB CC125

-nice 3s hotliner, or 4s screamer set up, batt in picture not included, prop blades in picture not included.

plane 340
motor 270
esc 160
elevator servo 30
ship 50

+5 spinner free
+7 spinner free
rfm 16x17 slim free

Total $850 / paypal (you save about 20%)

-great performance for the price. I had this all ready to go for a friend, but he fell out. so if you wanted a new Tiger and don't want wait for Hobby Lobby to re stock, here's your chance to get a fast new one at a pretty good deal.



PM if interested.

I don't anything about these planes. Just curious, how fast will it go with 4S? I can't buy anything right now but I like FAST planes.

Thanks, Tom

Probably closer to 250 amps. It's a 5.2 geardrive; special order, and the calc was done with a modified constant of .85 which matches the SM Unilogger pretty good.

This is the same set up I've used for speed trial attempts on a double carbon Avionik. It rips ;-)

This is it in action on 5S, post one. https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1018156

and in post 3, second video, with a different prop
