Hobbyking Micro Tiger Moth 560mm w/display stand (PNF) (AUS Warehouse)
The Tiger Moth is a firm favourite with scale RC pilots and with good reason, this super detailed "Tiggie", finished in an attractive RAF trainer livery, is a must for any fan of this iconic aircraft.
Assembly of the Tiger Moth is straight forward for a Bi-Plane, especially as the servos, ESC and powerful brushless motor have all been pre-fitted. Another nice feature of this pretty micro is that it can be flown from pretty well any strip, easy to hand launch, its tiny dimensions and low weight make it ideal for landing on grass without suffering damage, and when you have finished flying, you can just pop it onto the included display stand and admire the high level of scale detail!
The flight performance of this fantastic looking micro model certainly lives up to expectations, there is plenty of power for realistic aerobatics from the pre-installed outrunner motor, the Tiger Moth has full four channel control and a pull/pull rudder which is a brilliant feature for a micro, add to this the low flying weight and you have a scale micro that is a joy to fly!

Hi there, really keen to get one of these soon!
Just need to know, does it have an xt-60, jst or something else for the battery plug? Need to know if I need to get an adapter for my charger (JST) or change the connections to xt-60 (what I have on everything else) - cheers!
P.S: any videos of this one in the air? and what is the average flight time on the tiny 500mah 2s?
Hi I like the Micro Tiger Moth dos it fly ok but from what I read here there seems to be a problem with the size of the battery, HK suggets a 450mAh- 500mAh battery but sounds like it will not fit and a 350 2 cell will fit can any one tell me know what size battery works with it and why dont HK sort out these problems before the sell this product. Thanks
After having a good look at the plane, it's about the only place it could go. Sometimes you have to reaarange your receiver, ESC and wiring and it will fit. It's only a baby of a battery so should fit ok. Occasionally it may have to be inserted on it's side. I'm guessing the manual either doesn't exist or doesn't show it. Sometimes bigger batteries can be used but in a micro it will mess up the CG(center of Gravity)That would be the place, right under the wing. And it probably can be pushed forward, there's enough room.
I found there was no need to add additional weight with the following mod.
Remove the weight from inside the nose section, remove the cowl, widen the pre-existing hole under the motor and place the weight sideways from the front with about half of it protruding (this stop the cowl fouling on the battery). Experiment with the position before gluing in place. There is now more room up front for the battery which can now be pushed further towards the nose. Works a treat.
waterlogged, the reason I have so many votes is because I offer actual comments toward the products that hobbyking offer and give my professional opinion, unlike yourself that offers nothing at all. you truely are a waste of space who offers nothing at all! Its not just for asking questions you halfwitt, but to give comments on products that are offered. You have only made yourself out to be the goose that you truely are!
This tiny Tiger Moth is great. It looks beautiful and there's enough power to take off from a smooth road or cricket pitch. It flies well with a bit of trim adjustment necessary due to difficulty with inserting a big enough battery into the tiny battery compartment. Landings are slow and easy on the plane. If you're looking for a very small plane (sub-micro or nano to some) and a display-worthy model then this is it.
4 crowns for overall rating due to the small battery compartment, but that can be overcome with the right battery and fiddling the trim.
