  1. Walking around the Southampton International Boat Show after filming some large RC powerboats in action and I stumbled across the trade stand for Swellpro. A manufacturer of multirotor aircraft/drone for the marine industry. Didn't know waterproof drones existed! They can take off and land on water and survive full immersion. Makes them suitable for many more applications that your typical drone. Dan of Swellpro UK gave me a quick intro.
  2. Each built from scratch and flown in close formation without any fear. These are skilled builders and pilots putting on a great show for the public.
  3. Totally different kettle of fish and I think us RC 'pilots' know that...
  4. Robbie Skipton doesn't just fly these monster radio controlled aircraft, he also designs and builds them from scratch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0igCSG_jcY
  5. I've seen similar RC aircraft suffer worse abuse. Pylon racers, dynamic soarers, and some other turbine powered aircraft. The skill is in the design and construction of these things for me.
  6. Not often you see something fresh and innovative. This is the NEW Jeemo. A performance glider with a 45N jet turbine engine INSIDE the fuselage. No wonder it's so quick and agile. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDBexxuQsyc
  7. So clever. Combines the ease of flying a drone with the efficiency of flight. Vertical take off and landing with one button used to transition to regular flight and back to hover again. No moving control surfaces. Roll and yaw achieved through differential thrust. Integrated FPV with real time view streamed to the controller. Strangest but coolest looking thing I have flown in a while !
  8. Skilful demonstration of aerial firefighting at the new Popham Model Show. In that crosswind it was quite a challenge !
  9. Filmed this superb scale helicopter at the recent, new, Popham Model Show. Great flying by the owner. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WyGshm_u26k
  10. Piloted by Keith Mitchell, this model took 5 years of combined design and construction. This model aircraft was initially designed by Tony Nijhuis and part-built - was extensively rebuilt by Keith's modelling mate, Peter Johnson. Its initial flights were taken under the Large Model Association scheme (approved by the CAA) for model aircraft over 80KG. It underwent 12 test flights for combined flight time of more than 2 hours to get it's LMA\CAA certificate to fly at public shows. During this flight at Elvington Keith was battling a strong gusty cross wind. The cross wind landing was extr
  11. Day 2 of water trials of this amazing project with commentary from Alex Jones of The Little Jet Company. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbDP2_uhZ4E
  12. Sharing vide of the first water trials of this amazing 1:4 scale twin turbine powered Convair Sea Dart created by The Little Jet Company. The Convair F2Y Sea Dart was an American seaplane fighter aircraft that rode on twin hydro-skis during takeoff and landing. It flew only as a prototype, and never entered mass production. It is the only seaplane to have exceeded the speed of sound. It was created in the 1950s, to overcome the problems with supersonic planes taking off and landing on aircraft carriers. The program was canceled after a series of unsatisfactory results and a tragic a
  13. Truly spectacular scratch built aeromodelling. In a world of ready to fly RC aircraft these are rare and beautiful to watch in action. These aircraft are built from Falcon Aviation kits and Tony Nijhuis plans, have a wingspan of 17 feet and are 1/6th scale. Each model weights about 87 pounds without fuel and are powered by four Zenoah 38s. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KDjWx2gtrRQ
  14. A compressed action compilation of modern and classic RC Airliners from a meeting I attended in Germany. Enjoy !
  15. I've filmed a few RC F-104s but this one has the best scheme of the lot. Looks amazing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFTqeAk8Ky4
