This Flair kit of a Tiger Moth was originally designed for a 20-30 cc 4-stroke engine.  Richard however decided to take advantage of the SP series increased torque and is very happy with it's performance.  He says 'it flies in a scale like manner, not aerobatic'. 

He uses ModelTechnics Duraglo 10 fuel and has installed an intelligent glow system (Telco).
