Details

The DeHavilland designs are so distinct in the world of aviation.

The Puss Moth was designed at a time when aviation was booming and was intended to be a fast 'Gentleman’s Carriage'. Our version captures that character and combines it with stable performance.

Construction is traditional and based on pre-printed balsa sheets and strip. This time honoured construction provides the right combination of strength and low weight and helps to recreate the general structure of the original design.

The advantage of generous wing area, a good section, high wing mount and low weight all come together when it comes to flying. This Puss Moth really has the performance to go with the looks and makes a great first scale free flight model Needless to say, the kit comes complete with propeller and rubber as well as suitable tissue for the covering. All you need is glue and dope (and maybe paint) before you'll be ready for the air. For those that prefer it, we reckon the Puss Moth will easily convert to electric by the use of a suitable gearbox and motor combination.

If you're a gentleman, your carriage awaits!
