Temps just hit 50 for a couple hours today, broke out the nitro planes for a change. Was nice for a change but also a good reminder of why I moved over to gas instead. Bonus footage of my friend (and owner of the airfield) buzzing the runway with his full scale Cherokee.  \./8

That was pretty cool!  I started to watch it and got distracted. Just now got to see it all. The plane appeared to be hanging in the sky & the reverse smoke cool!

Thanks. He was hovering while I flew around him. Reversing the video at the end turned out pretty cool, I've watched it a dozen times now. lol

That's a BIG one man!!  Do you ever put a FPV setup on any of your planes like you do your drones?   Looks like a lot of fun and a great day to fly.

Haha Thanks. Couldn't have asked for a better day to fly.

I've got a few planes set up for FPV. Need to start flying them again.

Awesome! That inverted near collision was wild. I briefly got into RC planes.  If I didn't have way too many hobbies, it'd be something I'd get back into. Ha. I do enjoy watching the FlightTest YouTube channel though.

Hobbies are fun, airplanes are more like an addiction....  :D

I've got a few Flite Test planes, still have one I haven't built yet. Very soon though. hehe  >:D

Great and Fun video to watch. There is an RC field in Parkton, Md. These guys are serious. Lot's of fighter jets. I had a plane when I was a teenager, RC's weren't around yet, it had the strings and all it did besides crash was to fly around in a circle.

LOL Pilot was already in there. Plane flew perfectly, only change will be a new tail wheel which was not up to the task.

That's cool, Larry. Didn't know you were into control line at one time. Never had one myself, but I'd seen a few growing up and made me dizzy watching. lol

Shug is trying to keep control line flying alive. He was once a Ringling Brothers clown along with doing how-to's for hammock backpackers. ( Youtuber/74k-Subs). Makes his own music for his videos too.

I couldn't imagine doing control line, watching it is even hard. LOL

I finally got a DJI Spark, gave in and went store bought "drone" for the better footage I can get with it and HD streaming video with telemetry etc... So after using it for long enough to have built some confidence in it's ability, I put it up and let it hang out while I flew my latest giant scale Extra. First attempt at this, and I had a different prop on the plane so it was faster than I was used to too.
