This is perhaps one of GWS's best flying and most under recognized models ever. Just replace the wheels with something a little more solid looking and the appearance is not far off from a Cessna. This kit comes to you NPS (no power system), ready for your own power system setup. EXCELLENT model to put on GWS floats. Photo at left is one finished in scale air service colors. Decal kit included (not shown) is like one in E-Starter Twin listing.

GWS Pico Tiger Moth in Yellow Electric ARF with No Power System (YELLOW OUT OF STOCK)
GWS ARF Pico Tiger Moth Minor assembly of parts and you are ready to go fly!
High wing sport 40 size glow model from GWS. The Sky Hero is designed with a semi-symmetrical airfoil for the sport lover yet retains plenty of wing area keeping it suitable for a first trainer. I actually own and fly one of these as an electric model as it makes a good conversion project. Learn more about this model in RadicalCast #007.
Specifications GWS: Length: 1380 mm (54 in) Wing Span: 1530 mm (60 in) Wing Area: 49 sq dm (760 sq.in) Flying Weight: 2500g (88 oz) Wing Loading: 51 g/sq dm Recommended Engine: .30 to .50 2 Cycle Recommended Prop Range: 9x6 to 11x7 Radio Required: 4 Channel, 4 Servos
Notes about setups: #1 is a setup I designed to prove out an exceptionally low voltage system that would actually work well in a 40 size model. It's well balanced and performs much like this model would with an OS .40FP. I consider it one of my highest technical accomplishments. Low voltage is an often repeated mistake. This was my attempt at making the typical "mistake" a sucess. If you like trainer aerobatics and flying on the wing, perhaps you'll enjoy this setup as much as I do.
Setup #3 is an alternate way that I fly this model. More peppy, more aggressive performance for a motor so small. It really optimizes a motor normally considered too small for a 40 size glow conversion.

Few people are aware that GWS also has larger ARF Models. This particular ARF is a very nice flying sport model. It reminds me of a Sig Kavalier which was one of my very favorites. I opened one of these for myself and fly it on floats! Get a fun airplane here.
Model is reasonably light weigth making it a good one to consider for conversion to electric. My suggestions are (based on E-Calc and experience with these motors): Sport: GWS/BLM006, 3S 3000 Lipo, 11-7 Prop, T-Bird 54 ESC Performance @70oz, 1491 FPM rate of Climb,39.9 amps,8450 RPM,54mph pitch speed,57oz static thrust, 449 watts.

This is an ARF-almost ready to fly- model. You need to add your radio system and engine. Minor assembly of precovered components required to go from box to flight ready.
