FF,

Very nice! Do you mean that the TM is owned and being flown by PT in the video? Or do you mean it's PT's design, but built and flown by you? Or built and flown by...?

Flew my Pico moth this morning for the first time this year. I forgot what a joy it is to just putt around the backyard with it.

Yes, every time I fly my Moth, the enjoyment factor kicks in. Had it up to slightly over 1000 feet this past weekend. Can't get much higher, courtesy of vision problems on one eye. Still, over all, "Moth" flies higher and longer than any plane in the fleet.

Hey, RD......

Are you still using the "how High" altimeter? I bought an Estes altimeter for my Phantom.
I take it way up beyond where I can see it. and my highest flight so far was 1537ft. But, I flew the 25ft moth and I swear it was magic. It had to be at least 30 ft up there.

Way too much downthrust... But I promised Basketcase ... just before he passed away... that I wouldn't change it. And I haven't. It still flies on the little motor that came with it.
