Does anyone know where I can get a wing kit for this Tiger Moth? Hobby Lobby no longer carries it. Mine did a roll on take off and destroyed the wings but the fuse is OK! Any help would be appreciated....

Default Maiden day

Today i went on a "second" maiden (the fist one was to short to count as a maiden). It flew, but tail heavy to the point that it was hardly poossible to fly. it flew like a leaf in storm and I went round and round to try to get her stable for a landing. Eventually i got her down in one pice (acctUALLY WITH A PROPER LANDING). Now I need som wieight in the front to get har to fly in a controllable manner.

Default Moth is now flying great

I have now 30 flights with the moth and it flies great. I upgraded the motor to an 140 g motor with a APC 10x7 slowflyer prop and I use 2200 mAh 3s lipo. Flying for about 10 minutes wih some spare power in the lipo. The AUW is about 1800g but I still have 60g lead in the nose. I think I can remove some of the lead but it does not seem to hurt to keep it either.
