New Product

VQ Tiger Moth


Hello, anyone seen or know anything about the new VQ Tiger Moth?

I have seen a couple of pictures and seen specs on VQ website plus also an unboxing by Modell AVIATOR that is not in English. I really like the look of this version and would like to get a discussion going about it. It looks like it is available in Europe but not yet in USA or here in Australia.

It looks the same measurements and weight of the Phoenix one but recommends a 70 4 stroke whereas the Phoenix suggest a 52 4 stroke. I have a 62 Saito and was hoping that it would be enough for it? I have seen a youtube video with the Phoenix TM with a 62 flying very nicely.

Any info or comments would be great....

The VQ container is being fumigated in Sydney by Customs at the moment.
The grand "uncontainering" should be mid next week. I am sweating on the Twin Otter. I believe there are a few Tiggers in the shipment.
Good luck

Hey, thanks for info re shipment. I called them today and was informed they got them in this week but only got 5 instead of the ordered 15 and all are taken already. Also they were all blue not the ordered red (already got two dark blue planes).
Unfortunately for me they won't be doing another order until next year....

Well still nothing much going on with this model.

VQ have released the RAF version and it looks amazing and is expected to be available in Australia in February so still a long wait for it here.

Would love to hear from anyone that has this plane and can provide some feedback on it.

VQ Warbirds (USA) has these coming in later this month according to their website. Looks like the camo version only for now. All three schemes look nice, but I like the camo the best

Yeah i noticed their website advertising it for this Dec. I hope someone or yourself if you get one posts some info here.

I'm on the list for one when it arrives here in Aus and will post after i get one but that will not be for another couple of months at least.. If they don't get the RAF versions in next shipment, i will be getting one in Vietnam and post it to myself here, i'm that keen on it.

It looks like you don't get a gas tank for it, not a big deal but you would think they would include a gas tank since it is for glow or electric.

I'm also curious about the maximum size for aileron servos i think need a mini or micro, hopefully a mini would be okay.

The VQ Model website has better information. Says it includes a fuel tank and in the manual it looks like it has standard servos for the tail and mini's for the aileron and throttle.

Looks like HK is selling their own version of this plane like they have in the past with other VQ Model planes. I like the color scheme of this one too
