Ugliest Tiger Moth Contest


Okay here are the rules

1) You cannot nominate / post your own Plane, it must be a fellow flyers plane. If you don't have another friend who can nominate your plane PM me and I will nominate you. You can also ask any other friend to join RC Groups
and nominate you whether thay are a regular flyer or just mildly interested.

2) There is no prize for winning other than the fact that you have won

3) Pics that led to the uglyiness are not allowed, just the final repaired and flyable plane (wanna keep the photos to minimum and not over tax the Server or the dial up users.)

4)Tiger Moths can be from any manufacturer, foam or Balsa, homemade are welcome too

5)The plane must have been flown, and must still fly

6)The photo posting will last for two weeks at which time I will nominate the three plpanes that look the best.....err worst and post a follow poll for voting by all.

7)The judges decisions are final and irreversible

8) Have fun

all posts that are deemed to be non conforming shall be deleted unless prior approval by me is received (I'm pretty felxible PM me first)

9) No animals may be harmed in the filming of your pics

10) Photos only, no links to photos, no long winded oratories, after all it is a photo contest

11) Limit of 5 pics per plane......make'm count



ready.....set.....Go!!!!

Hi
That Moth looks like most of the newness has just about worn off!
I bet there are more seasoned flyers out there yet though!
I wonder how many can find a camera ?

Crikey Chuck, you're going to get me kicked out of the Tigermoth Squadron.

At least it looks better in the pics than it does in person.

669 flights and 170.3 hours flying time. And a (ahem) few crashes.

Thanks for the pics and for posting them, I think.

Half of that plane is Probond!
I was going to post a nominee until I read that they must be flying, I'll look around for one later on.

Holy crap Wayne, that baby still going? Unbelievable. I wish there was somewhere we could host the He's no Fool video with that baby weaving between the trees at SFC.

Nice contest Chukie but, I think no one's going to beat Basket's old tiggie.

BTW, I am flying out of Plant City as of two weeks ago and having a blast.

Hi Luis, good to hear from you. Great news that you're out flying.

The video you made has been in my gallery since way back when you first did it. Of course, now RC Groups stopped using the galleries and made them hard to find. Guess I should repost it in the new video forum?

I remember when that plane was new! Just proves you can't kill a moth.

Wayne's a good pilot.... I would put the 25ft. Moth on here..... but it isn't ugly enough yet.

It's a long story.... in the two years since I built the plane, no matter what I've tried....it will not fly higher than 25'. It has over 100 flights on it... It's not ugly.... still looks great.

I'd have to say that BC's moth is now FULLY amortized.
less than 7 cents a flight, assuming everything electric works ok...
Past time for a fresh airframe.
