For what it's worth, mine weighed 7153 g (15.77 lbs) out of the box, including the ESM retracts and wheels. My electric all up flying weight, including flight batteries is about 10.5 kg (23.1 lbs).

I made a embarrassingly bad mistake on the second flight when I had to land in gusty crosswind. Still, the Tigercat behaved like a trainer and didn't stall despite my ridiculous stick input when I...

Mine is old, from 2010. The ones with the composite center wing is a little heavier, but not ten pounds heavier. I ditched the heavy wheels and used HS 225MG servos all around to save weight. I...

Heavy engines make for a heavy plane on landing, no matter how much extra power you have during loops. Mine has 1,34 hp per side of input power, which is fine. I mounted the servos under the wing...

I've seen your videos, which are spectacular with the speed and smoke. You can probably land a lot slower than that though. My Tigercat is nothing to be afraid of, and if you don't droop your...

You can 3D print a scale tail wheel. Rubber is 3D-printable. Here's one I designed and printed for my ESM P-51D. It's quite scale and can be scaled up to any size.

Well. It's no wonder the plane is such a drama queen if the ailerons are lowered along with flaps.

Why would you droop your ailerons? That makes no sense. You're effectively reducing the washout of the wing.

Thanks a lot.

There was anhedral built in on the early versions. It was documented earlier in this thread. Sounds like they fixed it.

What's the biggest prop that will fit this plane? Scale size would be 18" for this size B-25. Looking for my next ARF bash project and this looks interesting. :) Landing gear clearance is fixable,...

Mine takes off on its own after 15 m/50' and lands slowly on the first half of our <300' field with ditches around it. Your mileage may vary. Mine's 10,5 kg and the built up wing.

On the full size DC-3 the centre of the shafts is about 568 cm apart, or 223,4". This 1/8 scale model should have the motors about 70,9 cm, or 27,9" apart if it's accurate. It's quite obvious in...

Wonderful model. I'm considering this one for next year. What is the distance between the two motor shafts? Just wondering how far out from scale they positioned the engines.

Old crow is one I don't see often from ARF manufacturers. The Gunfighter scheme is common though. They should release some lesser known schemes, for example RAF schemes. I've never seen anyone...

I made some hard points for mounting the tanks. I think I will use one screw to mount the tanks from inside through a little hole in the bottom of the tanks.

Measure and drill. That's how I do it. Usually I have to adjust with a file. If you mess it up it's easy to fix. Either fill the holes with epoxy and micro balloons and try again, or glue in plywood...

I have not run the motor yet. The old motor has a problem so I have to replace it. It's probably an internal short. It was in a crash this summer.
