Takeoffs for the Tiger Moth 120 are very easy, even in slight
crosswinds, and require very little rudder correction. Scale takeoffs are best
achieved by slowly advancing the throttle and holding a bit of up-elevator as
the model starts to roll. Even with only a lO mph headwind, the model will lift
off within a few feet when you apply full power. Turns require a bit of
coordinated rudder, especially during the climb-out.
The model is capable of amazingly slow flight. Though not
dramatic, deployment of the leading-edge slats enhances slowspeed control. The
Tiger Moth could never be mistaken for a jungmeister, but it is nevertheless
quite capable of many aerobatic maneuvers. Really nice loops, stall turns and
wingovers are all easily within its capability, though its roll performance
leaves something to be desired. Even with differential aileron and the judicious
use of the rudder, an alarmingly slow barrel roll is the best that I can
The Tiger Moth was very popular back in the days, and its work has inspired many
