Greg Hayfield flying his monster 85% Pitts Python at Southern Model Show in its new scheme which is based on a scheme on a full size Pitts flown by pilot Jacob Holländer.
More control line Pulse Jet action from the BMFA Power Nationals. How do these guys walk in a straight line after one of these 200mph+ races against the clock !
Luke Metcalf flying this in true scale style. Lightning by name and he flies it like Lightning. I had trouble keeping up. Full after burners and tight turns. TERRIFIC !
The 'Ghost Squadron' give a superb demonstration of both unpowered and powered gliders at the BMFA Power Nationals 2017. The Minimoa is a classic design with its gull wings. It gets pulled up by a tug fitted with a 100cc engine. The racing glider is powered by an electric motor with a single blade propellor that is automatically deployed from within the fuselage into a vertical position before it starts up.
1/6 scale MiG-15 flown at BMFA Buckminster. Powered by a JetCat P-100.
BMFA National Visitor Centre in Buckminster. A fantastic facility for all all forms of RC flight. Well worth a visit.
I edit and publish as fast as I can Tony ! Here's another...
Steve Johnson, regular UK RC Show pilot, flies his new A-10 at BMFA National Visitor Centre in Buckminster. This Skymaster A-10 is 1:6.25 scale with length 2552 mm (101.3in) and wingspan 2784mm (109.6in). Dry weight is 20kg to 22kg (45-48Lbs) and the model needs 13-15 servos. I took a bit of creative licence and added some real GAU-8 gatling gun sound as its unique to the A-10. Steve told me he intends to get a backing sound track together with A-10 live firing to compliment his aerobatic display at shows next year. Looking forward to it !

Simon Potter flying his superb L-39 Albatros at a Jet Modellers Association meeting at the BMFA National Visitor Centre in Buckminster, Lincolnshire. This model is decorated in the scheme of the Baltic Bees Jet Team. Simon is obviously a fan and who can blame him. If you watch videos of them performing you can see what he is trying to emulate in terms of flying style.
The Fun Fighters are always a highlight of any Show they take part in. I've seen them at several shows this year and with Daren Graham and Mark Aubrey leading them they can't but fail to have fun and put on an entertaining flying slot for the public. These are small, fast and easy to build WW2 kits available from http://www.funfighters.co.uk. Here's a vid of these awesome models in action.

Can't beat that for innovation. Thanks for sharing Jos.

Scale perfection arrives in the form of this scratch built Westland Wyvern which was displayed by Pete Fullard at the BMFA Power Nationals.
WW2 Warbirds and turbine Jets in the same slot at the BMFA Nationals. Some skill required to keep these models in close formation but it worked so well.
Autumn has well and truly arrived and a fantastic 2017 flying season has ended. Despite that I still have lots of unpublished video captured at events over the few months which I will share over the coming weeks. There were some great moments over 2017. Here's a short clip compilation of some of my favourite action. Not all flying...I like to film all things RC.
The Fortune has rapidly become one of the best 2m sport jets available. Worth a look if you're a competent RC pilot. Filmed in UltraHD/4K at Southern Model Show.
A projectile with only 1 wing, a high performance 2 stroke race engine, that tops 299 KM/H. This is about as extreme as control line gets. Watch out for the super slo mo at the end. It's still fast !
Always a pleasure Jos.
Superb Avro Vulcan XH355 bomber from master builder Tony Nijhuis. Fitted with 'after-burners'. Flown at Southern Model Show to a very appreciative crowd.
Probably the best example of a large scale Sea Fury you will ever see. Sounds awesome and looks stunning. A highlight from the BMFA Power Nationals.
Mike Donnelly executing a masterful touch and go (with wheels up) at the Southern Model Show. Would be so easy to get this wrong and have a disaster.
CARF 1:3.75 T-45 Goshawk flown at the BMFA Power Nationals recently by Paul Dunkley. Filmed in UltraHD / 4K resolution. Super scale model aircraft.
