Fascinating to watch the guys start these things up and run them for 8 laps at 200mph+. I was mildly terrified filming it even though I was behind a fence. This was filmed at the BMFA Power Nationals in the UK. A 3 day event that brings together competition across a wide range of disciplines. Filmed in UltraHD / 4K.

With so many events in recent weeks it has taken time for me to edit and publish more Nats coverage...but that's my plan over the next few days. Starting with this stunning Blackburn R-1 Blackburn. The attention to detail on the exterior is equally matched by the interior.

More Nats coverage on my video thread here soon...

Another beautiful scale jet flown by Mick Burrell, a regular show pilot on the UK RC Show circuit. Flying his T-33 Thunderbird with maximum smoke at Wings & Wheels Model Show.

No worries Stevo. More awesomeness to come.

Some great flying action at the show. Numerous highlights but here's my first offering and will share more on my video thread here Sadly (but amusingly) some of the participants caught fire.

No pylons, just flat out SPEED during this demo by Paul Bardoe and his team.

This is why I'm saving up for a Moki 400 radial. Sounds like no other engine. Attached to this gorgeous scratch built P-47 Reno Racer it just looks awesome with the smoke pouring out of the exhausts. Flown at the Weston Park International Model Show and filmed in stunning UltraHD/4K resolution.

You won't see a better collection of WW1 warbirds on display. Not only are these flying works of art scratch built but they are flown in close formation. The always impressive 'Dawn Patrol'.

Andreas of CARF Models does something I've never seen before with an RC jet. He executes a perfect Pugachev Cobra manoeuvre ! An aggressive change in pitch bring the jet from level to vertical in almost an instant. Used by pilots to evade a enemy chasing them at close range. Just awesome to watch this done for the first time in front of a big crowd. Look out for the 'Cobra' at 3:45 into the video.

Martin Pickering takes the flight line at Weston Park and introduces his own brand of insanity. So entertaining this guy!

Would like to have seen that. Before my time I think sadly. I didn't go to enough air shows when I was a kid. sad

Andreas Gietz of CARF Models flying his superb F-100 D Super Sabre at Weston Park International Model Show. At 2.5m wingspan and 3.6 length this is one big scale jet.

Me neither Jos. I almost fell over from getting dizzy on lap 6!

Ollie Witt on his way to becoming Pylon Champ at the BMFA Nationals. This is video taken at the start line showing how difficult it must be to fly tight circuits this FAST !

31/08/2017 18:26:10

Next up...some late afternoon entertainment from quite a few BMFA members who were allowed to fly their models on the Pylon Competition Line after business was done for the day.

Action from the scale free flight on Saturday evening. Apparent the significant design and build effort that goes into the creations. Quite amazed to see a couple of electric ducted fan entries!

Had an enjoyable Saturday driving around a few of the flight lines taking video and stayed to watch the evening electric flying and scale free flight, both of which were hugely entertaining. Look out for lots of UltraHD / 4K video on my usual thread here **LINK**

Vulcan visits the BMFA 'Nationals' in the form of this superb four electric ducted fan (EDF) model designed, built and flown by Graham Dorschell.

Look out for comprehensive BMFA 'Nationals' video coverage over the next few days on the 'Essential RC' YouTube channel and Facebook group. All in super UltraHD / 4K resolution.

Ludo and his family travelled all the way from Belgium to fly at the Wings & Wheels Model Spectacular show with this impressive Christen Eagle biplane. More smoke oil than fuel I think on this flight!
