Radio Control "Flyin"

Discussion in 'Transportation' started by TomP, Apr 8, 2007.

  1. The local radio Control club had a large "flyin" this past weekend. I went out for the first time with my new 200/400. Better to stick to wild life or real airs shows, these RCs are hard to shoot, and the jets are nearly impossible to lock on at such speeds and close range.

    Nice series, did the X-1 launch from the B-29 and fly on it's own?
  5. Great shots - I want one of those! They look like a lot of fun. Loved the shot "Pall Bearers" :biggrin:

    Wow...you could have fooled me on some of them. They look like the real thing! Nice job though.
  7. Wow, some look like the real thing.
  8. Thanks for the comments. Have had no luck with air shows and good light this year. The X1 did launch from the B29. I did not know the full program, and stop shooting as the X1s rocket fired, as it returned to the runway. Neat program. Another plane dropped 3 RC parachutist. It was amazing wathing the B29 do a loop, that is a huge model!!
  9. Nice shots! Those planes are large.

    awesome images
  11. Very nice images Tom - and that is one serious hobby!
  12. Yes Fritz, like any hobby you can spend what you want, or have, LOL.
    The pall-bearers are carrying 4/6 $1000. The giant scale planes are very expensive. I did not keep the pics of the many very elaborate trailers that are used to haul the planes, at least we get our stuff in a camera a bag!! I did not capture the crash of a delta wing jet that crashed so hard that the motor was said to be buried 4" in the hard dirt.

    These images are great. I especially liked the WWII warbirds.

  15. Not trying to step on any toes, but I consider some things in life, "toys." For what some of these cost, they could even be considered a luxury to own. :smile:
