De Havilland DH82a Tiger Moth Biplane 1400mm Wingspan Laser Cut Balsa Kit









Description:
There are a few aircraft in the history of powered flight that truly deserve to be called "classic" and the DH 82a Tiger Moth is certainly one of these, with over 8,800 being produced and around still 500 being flown today.

The prototype DH82 first flew in 1931, having been developed from the earlier DH60 "Gypsy Moth" by changing to an inverted engine to allow a better forward view and incorporating the distinctive swept wings to enable easier escape by parachute from the forward cockpit at the request of the Royal Air Force, who were to use the Tiger Moth as a basic trainer throughout WW2 and retired it from service in 1959.

Further development by adding the larger Gypsy Major 130 bhp engine and a plywood rear decking resulted in the DH82 being re-designated the DH82a which is the Tiger Moth that we all know and love today!

Our DH82a Tiger Moth is to approximately 1:6.4 scale and is a laser cut balsa kit for modellers that enjoy crafting their models the traditional way, savouring the time taken to build a model from a kit, but with the bonus of having had all of the balsa and plywood parts intricately laser cut for you.
A few modern touches have been incorporated into this kit to make life easier and make a stronger model, such as carbon fiber tube wing leading edges and joiners. Carbon composite material has also been used for the interplane and cabane struts to give maximum strength and durability in these areas as well as allowing for greater accuracy while building this classic airframe.

A comprehensive hardware pack is included, as is a welded wire undercarriage, scale sized wheels and a molded glass fiber cowling.
The interlocking nature of the kit parts dispense with the need for a plan and require only a flat building board to produce a straight and true airframe.
Basic, 4 channel radio is all that is required to fly the Tiger Moth which, like its full-sized counterpart is easy to fly, but more of a challenge to fly really well using coordinated ailerons and rudder - all part of the pure pleasure of flying a classic biplane!

Power requirements for the model are quite modest, a 3548 or 4240 7~800kv outrunner turning a scale sized 12" propeller will be more than adequate on a 3/4 cell LiPoly pack. Alternatively, the model can be built for IC power using a 7.5~10cc glow or gas engine mounted inverted within the cowling.
With over 8,000 original examples to choose between from every continent on the planet it should be a very pleasant problem to find a color scheme to follow!
