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?

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!!

Very nice images Tom - and that is one serious hobby!
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.
