New toy:- Art Tech Tiger Moth
So, decided to by an Art Tech Tiger Moth due to it being a lovely plane and currently £50!!
First impression? Really nice model, really well made and very, very nice to look at. However, due to the following design issues, the last 3hrs of making the model will surely be longer than the plane lasts as I'm sure to 'ditch it' WWI style.
There is NO room at all for the recommended battery to sit in the battery hatch without a few moves with a scalpel. Even after a few slashes, the battery hatch wont close, so I had to remove it and rely on an elastic band to keep the battery in. Also, the space for the ESC and the RX is also too small. I had to remove the casing for the RX and wrap the RX in insulation tape for it to fit it into the gap, even with this done there was no space for the ESC. The ESC is now in the battery compartment. Also, there is no guidance on the CoG. It says the CoG should be 35%, but is this the top of bottom wing? Why not put the actual dimensions in the instructions? Anyway, it'll be in the bin when I stack it. Lovely model though!
