Hanger 9 1/4 scale Tiger Moth.

Post

Thanks Gary, your Ohio R/C Ultimate biplane is too big and we're moving. Besides, I have to finish the Tiger Moth. :P

Got the fuel tank and the cabane struts and bracing wires done. This is like the full size!:P

Any progress Randy? Does it use scale rigging on the wings as well?

Yes, it has full scale, functional  rigging, complete with cross-bracing between the wing struts.

What do you think of this prop for the Tiger Moth?  :whistle:

I know, I'll have to get one. We'll see if it noses over, first.  :P

The tail is on with screws.

I think the motor mount solution would be best solved with making a plywood box and bolting it to the existing firewall mounting blind nuts on the original firewall. Then bolting the motor mounting plate to that spacer box. That way, the airplane can still use a gas/glow engine later if so desired. Time to go get some plywood. :P

If it flies anything like my Tritle Tiger Moth, nosing over from time to time is probably going to happen. Although the small wheels on mine may be the culprit that causes the nose to be attracted to the dirt runway.

Hopefully, that won't happen on the dirt runway. These tires are about 5 inches in diameter.

Pat T. said all the Tiger Moths he built tended to nose over too. I think it has something to do with the position of the gear and the height of the top wing??

Randy, I usually just make standoffs by drilling a hole through the center of a dowel and using longer bolts. it makes it really easy to adjust thrust angles too. You just have to be careful not to tweak the mount or the motor may bind up. Don't ask how I know : :dry:
