Micro Tiger Moth Motor Replacement.

October 12, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

A few weekends ago the Tiger Moth’s motor died.

They are brushed motors so this is to be expected. I order a replacement from my local store.

Here it is from Flyzone and the annoyingly high stick price.

First thing you have to is open the plane up. Since I’ve done a few repairs already this was not an issue.

I did go a lot further back this time so I could open the frame up a touch more to work exposing the motor and transmission.

Receiver and mini servo setup. Notice the prop motor disconnect towards the back.

I did have to cut the wire to the motor because it ran under the board and I did not want to solder inside the plane.

New motor and wires all setup.

I did run the wire a little different. Due to the wire not being able to pass under the radio rx.

I did notice while flying it may have been a touch tail heavy so I may move the connector forward.

Dab of glue to lock the wires down.

But ready for a test run.

Everything worked well.
