A breeze to build, the Pico Tiger Moth T-GWS1020 requires at least a 3-channel FM radio system and sub-micro flight pack, which you provide. It features all-foam construction and goes together easily in about four to six hours. No painting is necessary, as all the foam parts are prepainted in authentic Tiger Moth yellow.
Other scale touches include the Pico Tiger Moth T-GWS1020 trademark swept wings and tails surfaces, black molded cowling, and a decal sheet featuring authentic British markings. Completely assembled, the featherweight flyer weighs in at between 7.5 and 9 ounces, depending on the flight pack that is used.
Indoor aerial adventures Cruising at a stately 7 mph with full control authority, the Pico Tiger Moth T-GWS1020 can fly figure eights in an area no larger than 20' x 40'. The two wings provide enough drag to prevent excessive speed build up, even in a nose-low attitude. Stalls are nice and predictable, occurring around 5 mph with full up elevator and without any tip stall surprises.
The geared motor and high-efficiency prop that GWS provides with the kit gives the Pico Tiger Moth T-GWS1020 exceptional climb performance. In our tests we could climb from 5' off the floor to the base of a 40' ceiling in just 7 seconds. Power comes from a 150mAh 6-cell pack (not included), which consistently yields about 5 1/2-minute flight times.
To get the most out of the Pico Tiger Moth T-GWS1020, we strongly suggest you use GWS's Pico Sub-Micro Flight Pack. It includes a 4-channel FM micro-receiver, 2-Pico Sub-Micro Servos, a 7.2V 150mAh 6-cell stick pack (optional 8.4V 7-cell pack available separately), and a micro-electronic speed control. It is available in both JR and Futaba versions.
The Pico Tiger Moth T-GWS1020 is easily one of the finest slow flyers we've come across to date. Not only is it an outstanding reproduction of a British aviation classic, but it features the same charming flight characteristics that made the full-scale Tiger Moth such a classic to begin with. This one is not to be missed.
This kit is not a Ready-to-Fly kit. It will require the following items:
- 6 Minute Epoxy
- 4 channel radio set up
(We recomend the T-GWSRD115 because it comes with an elctronic speed controler, servos and a battery.)
- Flight Pack (if you have a radio) T-GWS2020(JR/AIR) or T-GWS2025(FUT/HRC)
- Charger (T-EFL2005, T-EFL2010, and T-EFL2015 all work great)
