Tiger Moth antics - flying inverted w/video

Hello guys, a while back I had posted a thread about flying the Tiger Moth inverted. I finally got another video put together and I've included a few inverted clips. If anyone is interested in checking it out, here it is:

Enjoy!

Kyle:

It is always so soothing to watch TM videos, esp. when relaxing music is mixed in.

Great job, as always! My next mission - fly my Moth inverted!

Thanks!

Nice Flying

Nice runway, even with the bend in it!

Also, nice change in the weather during your "flight". Have you considered installing lights on your TM?

I've considered lots of things for the TM - lights, still camera, movie camera. Right there at the bend in the road is the local gun club. The club guys kid me about flying that thing close by when their shooting skeet. Yellow makes a nice target!

I've got 500 feet of the best runway around, but since I only really need about 10 feet, I've got lots of room for error.

Wow, that was a great video. The music was perfect, your cameraperson did a fantastic job and your piloting skills were superb. I dare say it was the nicest produced video I have seen to date here. Like DaveWCO said, it is so soothing to watch the moth fly. I especially liked the shots when the camera pointed towards the sunset with the moth flying. It looked like a full scale plane at times. It kind of makes me want to want to go fly my moth before the sun goes completely down! I'll have to see if the rain has stopped yet.

Really nice work Kyle. Emotionally inspiring. Enjoyed the warmth the music blended into the sunset shots. Fine job.

VERY, VERY NICE!

Dude, I saw your first Tigermoth video, and totally loved it! I saved it to my harddrive as "TM vid BEST" literally! Now I see this one, and it is the smoothest flying I have ever seen! Man, you kick butt at the tm and videos! I've gotta saw, you have got a nice videoman, too! Is this your second TM vid, or did I miss one?

Your should sell them for $20K each to GWS.

Is that the Seattle stratospere in that background?

Thanx!
-Michael

oh, and could you tell us the entire setup and the major mods?

Do you buy a new moth for every video? Darn, they look great each time!
