This large 1/4 scale 86" kit of the De Havilland Tiger Moth is extremely rare and this is the only one in the country.
The De Havilland Tiger Moth, DH82A, must be known to aviation enthusiasts and the general public alike. It is a true classic. Our example, T-5424 is painted in RAF training colours. It is flown regularly as part of the "Diamond Nine" display team no doubt reminding many a former RAF pilot of their training days. Many Tiger Moths still fly at local clubs so it should be quite simple for modellers to choose their own scale colour scheme. The Flair Tiger Moth is designed for those with some experience looking for a larger near scale biplane. It is straightforward to build and we hope that the time we have spent preparing the instructions and diagrams will make construction a pleasure and produce a model of which the builder can be proud.

Our Tiger flies on a Laser 150. This seems to be the perfect combination; enough power for a safe take off with cruise power to give a convincingly leisurely flight. Whichever engine you choose remember that using very low power levels will call for greater pilot skill, (smooth flying with very slow climb rates and flat turns), and using very high power levels will call for some restraint, (don’t rip the wings off in a power dive). Having said this the power range we specify will give good safe performance.
We do not need to give any special flying instructions, the model is smooth and forgiving. On take off use a little down elevator to lift the tail initially and steer with the rudder. Squeeze in a little up elevator when speed has built up and that’s it.
When you first fly the model keep the speed up a little on landing until you have a good feel for the stall speed. The stall is well behaved without vicious wing dropping.
We have looped, rolled, spun, and stall turned our model and flown it for prolonged periods inverted. Think smooth flight, flick manoeuvres etc. really do not look right for the Tiger.
Many colourful schemes may be applied to the Tiger Moth.
Our model is in standard RAF training colours and is one of the aircraft used in the Diamond Nine display team.
Decals for this particular scheme are available.
