Default Rubber band dh Tiger Moth conversion to RC

A rubber band free flight De Havilland Tiger Moth kit converted to radio controlled electric power...and it flew so well. This 18 inch / 460mm wingspan kit is available from Vintage Model Company (https://www.vintagemodelcompany.com/tiger-moth.html) and takes very little time to build apparently. With modern micro servos, small brushless electric speed controllers and motors the conversion isn't too challenging either.

This makes me really miss indoor flying. I just don't have an indoor place to fly anymore.

That is a really nice looking airplane. It is amazing how small and light the modern components are at this time. And they are fairly easy to install and setup.

Thanks for the video.

I love Tigers. Had a 1/4 scale once. That one really appeals to me and I have plenty of micro servos etc. Damn you Ditchit.... You have started something here...
