de Havilland Tiger Moth EP

Revolutionary realism in a classic military trainer.

  • Easy to fly, like the 1930s RAF biplane.
  • State-of-the-art design improves scale detail.
  • Fly indoors or outside in calm winds.

Great Britain's "J-3 Cub".

By 1930, Geoffrey de Havilland's one- and two-seat civilian biplanes had grown so popular in England that virtually any kind of private airplane was called a "Moth" — much as, in America, any small plane was automatically a "Cub".

The prototype of the DH 82 Tiger Moth made its debut flight on October 26, 1931. The Royal Air Force took notice and began using Tiger Moths for elementary pilot training. By the end of World War II, de Havilland had delivered more than 4,200 to the RAF. About 3,000 more were built in Australia, Canada and New Zealand for Commonwealth Air Training.

Eventually, over 8,700 de Havilland DH 82 Tiger Moths would be manufactured. Of them, more than 250 are still considered airworthy.


cowl and windshield

Details molded into the foam and plastic parts contribute to a realistic cowl and cockpit — with factory-installed windshields.



Other sport-scale touches include instrument panels, pilot figures and peel-resistant, preapplied markings.


landing gear and wheels

No other indoor foam model can match this Tiger Moth's accuracy — authentic down to the de Havilland logo on the wheels.


ribbed tail surfaces

Most small foam models use taped hinges — but the Tiger Moth has live hinges on the elevator and rudder, plus ribbing molded into the Pro-Formance foam.


battery hatch with battery

There's plenty of room in the battery compartment for easy battery installation. The model performs beautifully on economical 300mAh LiPo packs.


motor installation

Install a lightweight power system — such as the recommended ElectriFly RimFire 250 motor and 300mAh LiPo battery — for long, 10+ minute flight times.

servo installation

With the recommended ElectriFly ES40 Pico servos, the Tiger Moth offers easy control for small indoor venues...with the added thrill of exceptional sport-scale looks.
