This is the Great Planes Goldberg Tiger 60 Sport Low Wing .60-.65 Airplane Kit. The Tiger 60 is the big Brother to the Tiger 2. With its confidence–building stability and silky–smooth control response, the balsa and plywood construction Tiger 60 is quite simply, the ultimate all–round sport model and low–wing trainer. This plane is an excellent first kit for novice builders, and is recommended for pilots with previous trainer experience. With its light loadings, low landing speeds and tricycle landing gear, the Tiger 60 is an excellent low-wing trainer. Those same features, along with its long tail 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 couldnt be easier. Plus all you need for truly sparkling performance is a .60 to .65 two cycle...anything bigger would simply be excessive.

Great Planes Goldberg Tiger 60 Sport Low Wing .60-.65 Airplane Trainer Kit
This plane is extremely easy to build and to fly. I put a Super Tigre 75 swinging a 14x6 prop at 10,500 RPM. It really jets. I have only flown it at half throttle but when you want to point the nose strait up and go till it's almost out of sight. It flies like its on rails and looks really good in the air. As for the kit, I prefer to cover it myself and put my own red, white and blue markings. If you find one buy it! It's a great all around aircraft weather you are a seasoned pilot or just moving to your first symmetrical low wing you can't go wrong with this plane.
