Looks good! Sounds like it was kind of a pitb to build. What size battery are you going to use? Looking forward to your flight report.

Awesome looking plane Boomer, where did you purchase this pretty girl from? I'm wanting to build Tiger Moth soon. How did your maiden go?

Thanks in advance

Will try to answer all..... Motor is AXI 2826/10 instead of the AXI 2820/10 HL suggests. Battery is 3S 2500 PolyRC 20C Rated at 50A Continuous. Was going to use a bigger battery but impossible to get into battery hatch but at normal scale flying will still give me over 15 minutes of mixed flying with the 13 X 6.5 APC E Prop.
AUW is 64oz and Power Meter after it settles down indicates 405W @38A.
This is 101.25W/lb. (All Moths will go vertical right? )
Wing Loading is 12.72oz/sq ft. At least 7 more days of rain forecast and I have only been able to fly 1 time since last part of Nov. between rain and wind! Now have following planes to maiden:
50"TM, Brio 10, Cessna 182, Edge 540T, Fokker VII, Storch, Telemaster Electro, Ultimate Bipe and 25 Ultra Stick. Still to build Hyperion 10e Cub and 60 Twist! Should be a busy spring when weather cooperates!
