GROAN! LOL! It still looks pretty good, except for the sagging wing wires.
But, I think the pilot died from starvation.

I and the people helping me will be getting it ready all the up to the start time!
The Civil Air Patrol is going to be there with about 20 Cadets. The MS Society is going to be there with a booth. There is a school and church also going to be there doing face painting for the kids and a bake sale.
So with all that and the raffle souvenirs and flying going on this should keep people from getting bored!

Not to mention your BIG sponsor? Put a link up so people here can see what's coming. This is a Tiger Moth friendly fly in!

Fly In

Here is a link to our dedicated site for the fly in.

And here is the thread here on rcg about it.

Absolutely Tigermoth friendly!

If you do, how does it fly compared to the old Pico Moth? It sure is a good looking plane.

I have about half a dozen flights on it now. Flies in between the Pico and TM 400.
Slow flight manners are great. Take off and landings are a thing of beauty. I was wishing I had someone to take pictures the other day. I did a flight with the sun setting in the backround. Would have made a great picture!

After your positive comments on the HK TM, why are you selling her, Wes?

It is in NO way a reflection of the HK Tigermoth. Or any dissatisfaction with it.
I enjoy flying it and think it looks great!
Short story is I need the money! So it along with 2 other planes are up for sale.
If am able to come up with the money I need some other way before it sells then I will keep it.
But ya gotta do what ya gotta do!

Gotcha.

Sorry for your needs, but glad to hear it's not the plane 'cause I've got one on the way.

Thanks.
I know if it does sell at the fly in I know I will miss it later!
I will say I would not use the included glue for anything structural. Medium ca ( not foam safe) and accelerator works much better.
