Welcome to Part 3 - The tour begins

Part 1
https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...5&pagenumber=1

Part 2
https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...5&pagenumber=1

Website: http://www.thonotosassafla.com/RC/tmwt_tour.htm

The tour begins with pilots at Seminole Crash Fest. I will not go into details since I will let the pilots make their own flight reports. I will post pictures and videos through out the day.

Registration is closed.

Well, here is the gang of Seminole Crash Fest. Included Luis too since he flies there once in a while. Just got the West Central Florida pilots in one pic. Golly, what a bunch. Kidding guys.

From the left: glewis, basketcase, Doctor Who, dulcelife, and last but not least, Air Warrior Belgy

How about all those shorts guys?

Ahh... shorts... And I still can't go out sans jacket and scarf without getting myself sick! You guys are cheating with that weather down there!

Great pics guys! You can just feel the momentum of this endeavor building up, can't you?

This is so cool...

Well since I was the next pilot after Luis here's my report.

No surprises, it's a Tigermoth. Takes off easy, flies nice and smooth, did not need any trimming at all. Made a few laps and figure eights, and a couple of flyby's for Gene to capture on video and then broght it in for a pretty smooth landing. Flies just like a Tigermoth should.


Big thanks to Gene and Luis for bringing it over. And also for getting there so early giving us a chance to fly before the wind picked up. We were fortunate that the weather was better than predicted. Great job on the build Gene.

There were a couple of other TM's there to give their World Tour travelling sister a sendoff.

Onward little Tigermoth!

Our thanks to Air Warrior Belgy for donating a set of GWS Lightweight Foam Wheels for the Moth. They will be installed before she is shipped out to Miami tomorrow.
