Model R/c Show

Recommended Posts

National Museum of the USAF

Dayton, OH

 

Annual Model R/C Show.  Just happened to be in the area so thought I would check it out.  Much cooler than I thought it would be.  Thought it would be just a bunch of sellers and collectors, but they were actually running a show, much like an air show.  Very fun to watch.

 

1/3 scale models, made from kits and some scratch made.

Harrier-ing.  Maneuver named after the Harrier Jump Jet, where the model plane is controlled so that it holds position, almost still.  Possible because of the torque to weight ratio of the models.  This is something not capable in the full scale versions of these planes.

I know next to nothing about it.  Very basic stuff from my short time trying to learn quadcopter flying.

 

The build on these just seemed top notch and the masterful way they were able to fly them - just amazing!  Definitely stumbled onto something fun!

True.  Not bad for a camera that is not known for having a strong C-AF tracking feature.  I'm sure the EM1 would have done better.  I didn't know this was going on when we took our trip, otherwise, I would have prepared accordingly.

There are times that hobbies grow into an obsession. This event couldn't be further from the tiny RC planes that used to whiz around the local football ground on a Sunday morning short of being a full-scale air show!

 

This must have been fun to watch, brought home by some great photos.

Very entertaining - it was a welcome surprise.

I just realized that the initial image under "pre-flight interview" had a typo in the link.  I've corrected that now.
