|Thread: Essential RC's videos|
The first in a series of short vids showing some of the best (and not so good) landings at Shows and Events I filmed at last year. Conditions aren't always favourable but, has to be said, the pilots always do their best to put on a great demonstration even if the wind is gusting across the runway.
A highlight of many UK RC Shows is the Panic Display Team flying their radio controlled Avicraft Panic biplanes in formation in various aerobatic manoeuvres. How they don't collide is anyone's guess. Skill of the pilots and their coordination is key to them all arriving back home after a superb flying demonstration. Seen here at the Southern Model Show 2017.
Sure it takes skill to fly a turbine RC jet...but it takes even more skill and experience to be able to deal with things when they go wrong. Here Mick Burrell's Hawker Hunter suffers an engine flameout part way through its demonstration flight at the Southern Model Show. Other RC pilots would panic...
Durafly D.H.100 Vampire from HobbyKing. Has sold really well since it first came out. Second improved version now available. If it flies like this on a rough day, roll on Summer for more fun with it.
Third and final instalment of our LOW PASS compilations !
More low altitude passes from some of the best pilots on the UK RC show circuit...
Some the amazing flightline passes from 2017...some of them quite low !
Third instalment and it's the best yet. That's why we've had more views than the other 2 compilations put together !
Second compilation of another TOP 10 fantastic performances from last year.
Joel Vlashof flies his scratch build VTOL prototype for the first time. A 12S flight pack powers the Scheubeler 130mm EDF system with 4 nozzles controlled by a kk2.1 flight controller with custom VTOL software. Next steps are to add the fuselage wings and achieve transition from vertical take off to flight...and hopefully back to vertical landing.
Watch until the end and you will see a link top right to subscribe to Joel's channel. He would certainly appreciate some more followers of his awesome work.
Brilliant VTOL. So simple to fly even in strong wind ! Take-off vertically, transition to normal flight with flick of a switch, and then flick switch back for vertical landing (or hand grab). Superb.

A compilation of some of the awesome jets we saw flying at the Shows last year...
Out again for my second flying session with the Extra 330LX. I'm liking it more and more each time I fly it. I've got a 35% Krill Extra 330SC ready to fly BUT I'm going to get my raise my skills with this Extra 330LX before I take that for a spin.
Filmed at the Large Model Association Cosford Show. You can't deny the effort and skill that must go into designing, building and flying this superb giant scale models. It was a challenging day for flying with the cross wind but nothing deters the pilots from putting on a display for the paying public.
The new CARF Models MEPHISTO flying at the Classic Jets event recently
I haven't flown 3D for a long time Jos so was good to get back into the saddle. Quite restrained on that flight as didn't want to risk any damage on the first flight. Next flight I'll have it properly balanced and throw it around some more...
NEW HobbyKing / Avios Extra 330LX
HobbyKing and the Avios Team collaborated with RC Groups to provide this excellent rendition of the real Extra 300 LX owned and flown by RC Groups founder Jim Bourke. The original planes color scheme was worked on by Italian designer Mirco Pecorari and is based on the RC Groups color scheme.

Some might recall the 'Alienator' forward swept wing RC aeroplane from about 15 years ago. I had one and never got it flying. I feel redeemed having assembled this awesome wing in a few minutes and it flew brilliantly. Great fun on a Winters day.
A compilation of the best giant scale RC warbirds seen at UK shows this year. Corsair, B-52s, Lancaster bomber and P-51s to name a few. Enjoy !
