Thread: Radio Install on my Mercury Tiger Moth RC Conversion
25/11/2020 22:42:59

That's interesting Martin, it sounds like you went for quite a light rc setup, mine doesn't have ailerons so no adverse yaw to worry about!

Hi guys (and gals) this is Part 5 of my Mercury Tiger Moth build, this episode sees the radio gear going in.

They are fun machines Bob, my wife and I line up soldiers and see how many we can knock over whilst avoiding each other 😁

Thanks Flyboy, actually I do have pretty good eyesight but wouldn't it be cool to have the wings of an Eagle 😁

Fun indeed Dwain, how about a box on the handlebars, kinda like a butcher's bike of old? It needn't have to be very big either 🤔

A quick late afternoon flight before the latest lockdown ... most enjoyable.

Having watched part 1 and now part 2 I’m looking forward to the next instalment This has definitely inspired me kick start my own stalled build of a Tiger Moth conversation to 3 channel radio. Lockdown 2 combined with the onset of winter have also contributed to this. The weight saving lamination of the tail feathers is very clever and I’d not seen that before. I’d be very interested to know what size motor you are intending to use so I can get one on order. Thanks for the videos Cliff.

Hi LowandSlow, great that you've been inspired, as it happens the the laminating was done more for fun and looks than weight saving, the motor I've earmarked is probably a bit big for the job and thus heavier, thereby not really needing to save weight at all!

I'm currently building the wings, I'll put a video up soon but I've changed the wing tip shape to more accurately reflect a Moth, these are also laminated.

I've started a pre-winter build! It's a very old Mercury Tiger Moth free flight model which I'm converting to 3-channel electric rc, this video is part 1, it's not a blow-by-blow account this time so the progress moves along a bit quicker. I know I'm not the first person to do this but it's for a special reason.

The last Aerotow of the season and I had to go and break my bird, she's repairable though.

Hi Graham, the camera is a Mobius and the mount is a two access mount, search ebay for 'camera mount pan/tilt', about £5.

Why does every sentence need to start with “ so” ?

Don't you mean 'So' Cymaz 🙂

Congratulations on your purchase Wilco, it's difficult to answer your question as it depends a lot on the hslope you fly from, the lift generated by the slope and the wing loading of the model.

If you can feel it wanting to lift out of your hand then the lift is probably ok. Do you have much experience Slope soaring?

Cliff, what a great video, made me smile.

Please can you tell me what camera you are using on the model?

Safe flying!.

Hi Simon, it's a Mobius with the C-type lens, ie 'fish eye', not a great fan of the way it distorts the image but it captures a bit more.

I went without my outer struts for this flight, bit of a mistake!

Had a lot of fun learning how to trim a free flight model, I got there in the end.

Here's Part 2 of my Guillow's FW-190 Build, it's a bit longer than usual so I've included time stamps in the description to jump to the bits that interest you. I tried wetting the tissue first this time and it went very well on the fuselage especially.
