de Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth

RCModeler magazine's de Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth

The de Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth is a 1930s biplane designed by Geoffrey de Havilland and built by the de Havilland Aircraft Company. It was operated by the Royal Air Force and many other operators as a primary trainer aircraft from the early 1930s until the 1950s when the de Havilland Chipmunk was phased into service. The model presented here is a 1/6th scale sport scale model designed for a .49 to .61 2-stroke glow engine, installed inverted. With a 60" wingspan, a substantial amount of building is required and is true for all r/c biplanes, building the flying surfaces warp-free and installed at the proper incidence and decalage angles is important for successful flight. Worth noting: although the wing planform is "swept" back
slightly, the wing panels are really constant chord setups, greatly easing wing rib fabrication and wing assembly. Note also that the model's
ailerons, as is true for the full-scale aircraft, are installed only on the lower wing panels and should include significant aileron differential to counteract adverse yaw in turning maneuvers.

To know if the file is good please download it and open it on a pdf viewer like Adobe pdf viewer and set the view level or zoom level to 100% or 1:1 or full scale or actual size, depending on which version or pdf viewer you are using. Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

3D Printed Parts
Order 3D Printed Parts for the de Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth

General Information

3D printing allow us to design not only complete airplane models but also parts to complete balsa, foam or even composite model airplanes.

Parts can be designed and printed to fit exactly a model you have or a model you plan to build, even if you are not building this model to the full size plan.

3D Printing, and 3D CAD allow us to create the actual parts to fit on our models but also allow us to create negative molds where we can make composite parts.

I´m adding this service to all the plan listings on the site knowing that not every part you imagine or need can be done, knowing this, jobs will be evaluated case by case and a price estimate will be given on request.

What can be done with 3D Printing:

  • Canopies
  • Cowls
  • Wheel Pants
  • Landing Gears
  • Wing Ribs
  • Motor Mounts
  • Servo Trays
  • Servo Covers
  • Wings
  • Fuselages
  • Complete Models

Full Models, Wings or Fuselages

It is possible to design a complete model for you but keep in mind that this is a lengthy process, many hours are needed to design and test a fully 3D Printed model. The finished model cannot have the same internal structure of the wooden made counterpart because it wouldn´t be possible to print it, it would have to have a structure like the models you can see in the 3D Printed Kits section of the site.

From the outside they are very loyal to the plan but still they have to be printed in sections, typically to fit a 250X210X200 mm cube that is the printer maximum build volume.

3D Printed planes are also heavier than light balsa models, all built up and ready to fly, with an electric power system they are generally a little lighter than the same model if it were powered by a glow engine. Please have a look at the 3D Printed kits section to have an idea on this.

Pricing

I will calculate a price upon request, please contact me here mentioning this PlanID: 98357 and the job you wish me to do.
