The Manic Micro series will feature a range of indoor flyers. First up is the nnTiger Moth. This little guy is a blast to zip around with and is perfect for a yard flyer or indoor arena. Get yours built in time for winter!

If you like this design then perhaps you’ll like some of my others as well.

Is Manic Micro nnTiger Moth swappable?
Yes! I have designed a Manic Micro pod.

Will there be a build video?
Yes! See below.

How scale is this thing?
All proportions are scale except the tail feathers. They were increased by 25%.

Is the nnTiger Moth a good plane for a beginner to fly?
Yes! This thing is very light which makes it durable. Great for a beginner to nose dive with over and over.

Can I use different eletronics than what you've listed?
Yes! However, keep it light. If your build is more than 80g it will need to fly fast in order to stay up.

There is a plane I want you to design, what’s the best way to suggest it to you?
