A young chap I met at the UK R/C Nats a year or two back is now doing a media course and needed to make a mini documentary as a course assignment.

Here's the result. Hopefully worth a watch for a few minutes.

Some pretty much "raw" footage of my initial attempts at Aerobatics in my new RV-6

Quite a contrast to the Pitts, much faster speeds and more height gain / loss within each figure - but actually quite satisfying to fly.

I really enjoyed the bit at the end playing in the clouds. The extra speed over my Pitts makes for a more dynamic feel to this particular experience.

Anyway, hope you like it (but please don't expect any elaborate editing / multi camera angles - this is "as is", 1 angle / take and some music added.)

Hello everyone!

Here's a video we put together to show off our North East Region's finest contest of the year, the regional finals we know by the name of Black Dirt. It's situated in Goshen, New York centered in some lush farmland for sure.

The video includes freestyle flying by greats like Tyler McCormack and Chris Thorpe. We always like to shake off the contest jitters and throw down some high energy freestyles before we head home.

Special thanks to Cody Wojcik for getting video of my freestyle.

Bittersweet to have a great time and yet to also know it will be quite some time before we see each other again to compete.

So, hope you enjoy the video folks. Take care!!!

A re-edit of my last film of Wales. Some colour correction and re editing to make as watchable as poss rather than just a "holiday" video.

Hi All - My passion outside work is flying RC. I fly my own jets and models at RC shows and events around the UK and while I'm not doing that I video the action. Over the Winter months I acquire and review new models and take them for a spin commenting on the good and bad.

Why not drop in, join the group or channel and see if I publish anything you might be interested in.

Ryan O'Connor is an adrenaline junky who has landed himself in the RC world. It all started for him one day, about twelve years ago. Ryan was surfing the web and stumbled across a flybarred RC helicopter website and his attention was peaked. He was so intrigued, he went and bought his first helicopter; from that moment on he was addicted. After ten years of flying helis, he decided to make the move to fixed wing. "Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with some smack down on the deck (helicopters), but the gracefulness to all-out-crazy an airplane can do is just amazing." States Ryan.
Ryan flies at his home field in Wellington, Florida almost every day. When asked what his favorite part of flying is, Ryan replies with a simple "Not Crashing," followed by the real answer. "If I had to pick my favorite part of flying, it would be how awesome it is to see someone you helped learn to fly, make a successful flight on their own." As a father of two, one of which is learning to fly, and a very active member in the community, Ryan is always lending a hand and sharing his knowledge, and love, of the sport with anyone who asks.
For now Ryan is focused on IMAC, and his plans for the future are to compete in more competitions, and become a decent competitor from Sportsman all the way up to Advanced.

Would anyone know any ways to keep from having planes problems. For one thing if I chush and I seen that my elevator pushrod is no longer on the plane when I walk over to get it. Sometimes I can't tell weather the pushrod came off cause of the hard hit into the ground or if the plane went down cause it came off while still in the air. Another time that I went down was either cause a not soo good receiver, ESC or a servo. I can't say why sometimes things happen so fast it hard to really tell what just really happen. None of this should be cause I'm flying over my skill lever of doing stuff too close to the ground. I might not be good enough to do all the I-mac or 3d flying stuff but I am good enough to hover do rolling cycles or knife edge passes and cycles.

Picked up a nice semi built Q.Q. 120" (37.5%) yak. From what I have been told, it is one of 50 that Q.Q. made in this color scheme. The 1st owner did not finish, but added some functional louvers to cowl. I put a DA150 up front, HS7955 servos, techaero IBEC, and Spektrum 12ch rx. Need to find me some GIANT wheel pants. Yet to fly.
If anyone has ever seen or had one, I would love to hear from you?

A quick film of our annual "Pitts Artists" expedition. This year it was to Swansea.

There's 2 x S1-S, 1 X S1-T and Eagle and a Cub (The Cap 232 went Tec with brake issues).

Taken the weekend after our BMFA R/C nationals here in the England, there's a fairly "chilled" vibe for 3 mins 43 sec.

Hope you like it

FINALLY up and flying strong! Many thanks to Colton for finishing up the final hours; getting dialed in with the retracts, tuning and clunk issues, and other legwork he put into it!

It was fantastic and flew great! Going to fly this as much as possible till it gets too cold down here in Atlanta.... and it never gets too cold in Atlanta!

Stay tuned for more video and pics!
