The GWS Tiger Moth 400 was the first plane I built. My original Moth still flies and looks great, but I’ve decided to give it another go and see if two years of building and flying experience can’t produce an even better plane.
Click through the images to see more detailed text. I’ll be adding to this post as the build progresses.
Early flights showed this bird to be pretty tail-heavy. I’m guessing it’s a result of all the paint I put on her. Rather than run 2 oz of lead in the nose, I made some extensive mods to the battery compartment, running it out through the firewall.
