tiger moth: maiden flight
Finished my protech (Polk) tiger moth and have done firsts two flights:
specs: auw 815 grams
prop aeronaut 8.5X6
8 cells kan 950 Nimh
Easy to take off and can fly really slowly if you want to. Except for loops aerobatics are almost impossible. Otherwise kind of twitchy plane and I think I will move the cells a bit more forward for a better CG. The plane has a natural tendency to turn on the left side and need a lot of right trim. Maybe it is because of the top wing wich is still not straight.
But all in all I love this plane and will try to make a picture if someone is interested.
Here are the mods I have done:
- I added a protech pilot
- changed the wheels for lighter ones
- fixed the landing gear with two more plastic parts
If you are planning to get one just be sure to reheat the wings until they are straight.
