Seems like this gentleman is selling a TM400 Tiger Moth.

For those that live at or near Georgia, here you go!

Yesterday was a great flying day and I got several flights with moths. These are photos I took while flying my Royal Navy moth. If you would like to see more, see: https://www.flickr.com/photos/124772115@N02/sets/

PERFECT day of flying today After wringing out the wheeled birds down at the flying field, Gerry and I decided to hit the back pond and finish off the day with some float flying!

Lil Fishy was totally in her element!

It's a beautiful PTM you had, Ledkitty.
Thank you for posting these nice pictures.
Looks like you cut the two floats by yourself.

Thanks guys!

We did indeed Chen! One night while working on our planes in the back of my friend John's framing shop, we'd had a few beers while making replacement cowls for our moths out the very same plastic beer cups we were drinking out of using our tried and true slightly more art than science system of heatgun and wooden buck when I'd eyed some pieces of pink insulation foam propped up against the bandsaw.

I looked up some float plans online, we cut them out and a few scraps of wood, carbon fiber rods, wire and black Monokote later, both of our moths were equipped for water ops!

Best totally random thing to do while slightly buzzed! I've been using them ever since! I think that was back in 2006!

And yes Buzz, it took scientific instruments damnit! You know the old adage: Measure with a micrometer, mark with chalk and cut with an axe!

Hahaha.... Yes, that's the way I build everything! Floats look great and apparent work well too!! I had to laugh though. My wife was shooting video of me flying a quad I put floats on. She backed up one step too many and ..... fell in the pond!
I honestly did try not to laugh. So, we decided to use a larger pond, .... and that was nearly a disaster. Listen to the audio on this video at the very start. LOL
She tripped on a wire and nearly went into this pond too.

Here's the DJI Phantom... Trying out some hard turns, and checking the roof where it was just repaired. This is about how high I was when the real airplanes were flying about 50-75 ft. over me.


Well, I think this is the right one.

This strikes me as a re-post, Buzz. CRS??

My son got the DJI Phantom and threw on a GoPro with gimbal, and it is one great machine! Lot's of $$, but a blast with it's on-board software.

If you've got a vid of the DJI Phantom, post it up!

Nice 3000-GT and nice large property......kind of worry about those pine trees in the dry season.

Noticed you were aiming at the Top Roof's Ridge Vents so, here is a good web site tip on what to look for.
