Tiger 60 Booklet.qxd
 Instructions
The new TIGER 60 offers the latest in aerodynamic technology in a great-looking aircraft. With its light loadings, low
landing speeds, and tricycle landing gear, the TIGER 60 makes a deluxe low-wirig trainer. Yet, those same features,
along with its long tal moment and clean, symmetrical airfoil come through with super smooth aerobatic
performance. Loops, square loops, and cuban eights groove perfectly, rolls are on-a-wire axial, and inverted flight
couldn’t be easier. Plus, all you really need for truly sparkling performance is a .60 to .65 two-cycle. Anything bigger
would simply be excessive, |
Before you start, please read through these instructions and review the plans to become familiar with the TIGER 60
methods of assembly. Having said this, we hope you enjoy your new TIGER 60 as much as we have. It has
become one of our favorite aircraft to fly!
WARNING
A radio-controlled model is not a toy. It is capable of causing serious bodily injury and property damage. lt is the
buyer's responsibilty to build this kit correctly and to properly install the motor, radio, and all other equipment. The
first test flights should be made only with the assistance of an experienced R/C flyer. The model must always be
operated and flown in accordance with the safety standards of the Academy of Model Aeronautics.
Per the Federal Communications Commission, you are required to use only those radio frequencies specified "for

INTRODUCTION
USING THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL
Like a full-size airplane, the TIGER 60 is built from basic
structures (stabilizer, fin, wing, which are then
assembled into the complete airplane.
Special procedures or comments will usually be explained
before a step, so you will be prepared. If a step begins with a
statement like "Note," "Warning," or “Important,” it is a good
idea to read through the step before doing it.
A check-off box appears at the beginning of each step.
Check these boxes as you build, SO you can tell at a glance
what steps you have completed. me steps require you to
repeat them, oh me He
etc.),
Example:
11. Ll Position the wing portion of your plan
over your building board.
(О) Lay waxed paper over the plan.
О О Lay two strips of masking tape, sticky
side up, over plan, as shown.
Some of the instructions deal with general procedures.
Boxes are not needed for these sections.
HOW TO READ THE PLAN
The plan shows the Fuselage (Body), the Wing, and the
Tail Parts. Everything on the plan is drawn to full-size and
shape and shows how the finished parts fit together.
The plan is drawn to show the model completely assem-
bled, but as a result, the areas inside or underneath are
covered up, making it Hard to understand how these parts fit
together. Therefore, for clarity, some parts are drawn with
hidden lines, others with breakaway views, and some are
entirely removed from the structure and shown
For example, on the fuselage, the left side of the
completed model has been removed to show the details inside.
Sometimes a surface is broken away to reveal the detail behind
or underneath. Dashed lines indicate details that are hidden
behind or under another part of the surface.
The model is made from four varieties of wood: balsa,
bass, birch, and various plywoods. Each kind of wood has its
own characteristic end grain pattern {as viewed from the end)
which has been drawn on the plan. You can easily use these
end grain patterns to identify what kind of wood is shown for
a part, if you are in doubt.
IDENTIFYING PARTS
Parts for the wing are bundled together; likewise, parts for
the tail assembly are also grouped. Die-cut plywood and balsa
sheets of common sizes are bundled together, so they are less
likely to be damaged during shipping and handling.
The various screws, hinges, and fittings are packaged in
plastic bags.
HOW TO USE THE PLAN
The plan is used in several ways. The wings, stabilizer,
and fin are assembled directly over the plan. Each wood part
is matched over its corresponding location printed on the plan
and pinned in place. To prevent ruining your plan from gluing
your wings, etc. to it, cover the area you are working on with
waxed paper or plastic kitchen wrap.
Because the fuselage plugs together and is self-aligning, it
is not built directly over the plan. As you assemble the
fuselage, you will find the plan helpful in identifying parts and
how things fit together.
The plan also shows the installation of a typical radio,
battery and all remaining equipment and hardware needed to
complete the model. By referring to the examples shown, you
should be able to install your own radio, etc., even if it is not
the same as what is shown on the pian.
PREPARING FOR ASSEMBLY
Set a flat, warp-free pinning board on your work bench.
Any material that accepts pins, such as insulation board, soft
plywood, or dry-wall (sheet rock) will work. Important: any
warps or bends in the pinning board will result in wings or tail
surfaces that are also warped or bent. making your model
more difficult to fly. Make sure that the pinning board is flat by
laying a straight edge across it. You may be able to correct a
warped board by shimming its low areas.
Position the area of the plan (such as the stabilizer) on
which you are going to build over the pinning board and tape it
in place so the plan lays flat and wrinkle free.
Place a sheet of waxed paper or plastic kitchen wrap over
the work area to prevent glue from sticking to your plan and
ruining it.
CONSTRUCTION TIPS
If you have never assembled a built-up model! before, the
following tips will prove helpful.
IMPORTANT: ALWAYS READ A FEW STEPS AHEAD.
This will alert you to coming instructions and will help you plan
accordingly.
You may find it convenient to empty all of the small parts
from the hardware bags into a common container, such as a
margarine tub. This will help you find items quickly.
When drilling the 1/16" hinge holes in balsa, you may find
it easier to twist the drill between your thumb and index finger.
This procedure allows more control in positioning the drill on
the center mark.
Punch out only the die-cut (D/C) parts you need as you
proceed. This will help you keep track of parts, especially the
small ones.

WOOD PARTS
Be careful when removing parts (such as fuselage sides)
from the die-cut sheets. parts are fragile until
lued into a structural unit. If ne use a razor
ife or razor saw to assist in the removal of parts from
the sheet. Sometimes a little trimming and sandi
improve parts, where desired. Save scrap unti the
model is completed, in case a part is missing or
damaged. Also, scrap is used in some building steps.

CONTROL SURFACE TRAVELS
Cover all hinge gaps with matching color or clear
cellophane tape. Read all JET HINGE instructions before
final assembly.
Use the control surface travel gauges to correctly set up
the surface deflections. The gauges provide you with
two settings, a gentle response setting and a more
aerobatic setting. We encourage you to start out using
the gentle marks and to move to the aerobatic mode as
you progress. If you are using a computer radio, set the
transmitter to 100% and adjust the travel settings at the
servo arm. '
AILERON TRAVEL GAUGE
1. О Place the gauge anywhere along the wing. Align
the center of the aileron to the mark in the
neutral position.
L] With the control stick full left and right, match
the center of the aileron to the mark.
2. [0 Adjust the horn bracket as high as possible on
the torque rod and position the pushrod in the

surface travel.
Note: This is a good time to check and make sure the
control surfaces go the correct way. You
wouldn't want to correct a left bank with more
left, so check it now!
ELEVATOR TRAVEL GAUGE
1. LI] Place the elevator gauge anywhere along the
elevator hinge line.
2. OO Clip the pushrod to the end hole on the control
horn.
[1 Position the servo end of the pushrod in the hole
on the servo arm to achieve the desired surface
travel.
‘RUDDER TRAVEL GAUGE
1. O Position the rudder gauge at the top of the fin at
the hinge line. Follow the same procedure used
for the elevator to realize your desired travel.
LI Connect the steering pushrod to the servo.
Check the plan for proper orientation.

JET HINGE INSTRUCTIONS
Use your CG Hinge Marker to mark the center of
the wood surfaces to be joined.
Carefully cut a slot approximately 1/2” deep and
slightly wider than the hinge, using your favorite
knife blade.
After all slots have been made, mark the center of
your hinge and insert pin {see illus.). This will hold
the hinge in place while sliding the matching part:
(aleron, etc.) onto the JET HINGE. Do not glue!
With both surfaces hinged and assembled, check
the alignment. For good control response, the
hinge gap should be should be as small as possible,
but should allow for full deflection when needed.
When satisfied that all is aligned and working
properly, remove pin. Apply 3 or 4 drops of thin
JET CA glue to the exposed JET HINGES. Tum
over and apply another 3 or 4 drops to the hinge
line of the other surface.
Allow 10 minutes for the CA to cure, before
flaxing the surface.
Work the surface up and down to remove any
stiffness you may feel.
