What a great little airframe less the stock accessories including the motor and gearbox. I put this one together in about 3 hrs. Initially used the stock 400 can and gear box it came with and lets just say the stock motor and gear box are garbage. The Tiger will fly with it but bring your earplugs as I have never heard a more noisy gearbox in my life and performance is just this side of junk. I Put a Himax 2025-4200 and the himax gearbox in with a 1570 3sp1 apogee litium pack and a 9x6 apc slowflyer prop and what a change anything above half throttle you better be watching for flutter . The brushless really brings this plane to life. The plane weighed in at just over 1 lb and the setup I mentioned above pulled about 150 watts I tried a 3sp1 2480mahr pack and pulled 206 watts static and the little plane can handle it in stock form but I did use heaver gauge wire for the aileron control wires and I think I will replace the control arms as well. The landing gear are a little soft Just a step above black wire so would replace that with similar gauge music wire as well.
