Tiger Moth ARF
Almost-Ready-to-Fly Radio Controlled Model

Great Planes Tiger Moth ARF
Pilot figure shown is not included.
Huge 71" IMAA Legal
Expertly Covered with MonoKote

A graceful "Golden Age" touring plane that's almost Ready to Fly.

With its timeless looks and reasonable price, the de Havilland DH82 Tiger Moth was a very practical—and very recognizable—private aircraft in the 30's and 40's. Now you can capture the feeling of piloting an integral part of aviation history, with Great Planes's stirring all-wood R/C replica of the Tiger Almost-Ready-to-Fly model, no less! Interlocking parts and precovering of major sections in Top Flite MonoKote make for confident completion in as little as 15-20 hours; IMAA-legal dimensions contribute to its realistic flight characteristics and enhance the plane's incredible attention to detail. Whether you're a serious scale builder or an aspiring sport flier—or both—you'll thrill to owning and piloting this beautiful bipe!

  • The Tiger Moth's wing sections faithfully re-create the "open bay" look of the original, and are precovered in Cub Yellow MonoKote film.

  • Ideally suited for the power and realistic sound of a 4-stroke engine, but will also fly well on a 2-stroke engine within the recommended range.

  • High-quality Great Planes hardware is included for convenience.

  • Dual aileron servos simplify assembly, and deliver more precision and authority to flying maneuvers.

Don Anderson w/Tiger Moth

"The Tiger Moth was very popular in its day, and has inspired several radio-controlled replicas. However, you won't find any that combine the kind of quality construction and assembly ease that our ARF offers. And what's more, this Tiger Moth model is IMAA-legal!"
