Takeoffs for the Tiger Moth 120 are very easy, even in
slight crosswinds, and require very little rudder correction. Scale takeoffs
are best achieved by slowly advancing the throttle and holding a bit of
up-elevator as the model starts to roll. Even with only a lO mph headwind,
the model will lift off within a few feet when you apply full power. Turns
require a bit of coordinated rudder, especially during the climb-out.
The model is capable of amazingly slow flight. Though not
dramatic, deployment of the leading-edge slats enhances slowspeed control.
The Tiger Moth could never be mistaken for a jungmeister, but it is
nevertheless quite capable of many aerobatic maneuvers. Really nice loops,
stall turns and wingovers are all easily within its capability, though its
roll performance leaves something to be desired. Even with differential
aileron and the judicious use of the rudder, an alarmingly slow barrel roll
is the best that I can achieve.
The Tiger Moth was very popular back in the days, and its work has inspired
many replicas of its kind. Now NitroModels is proud to bring you one of the
best radio controlled tiger moth model in the world at 120 size! Have a
4-stroke engine ready and you, too, can relive a part of history!
