Superb re-creation of the C-130 with scale retractable landing gear and synchronised doors, flaps, operational cargo bay door and high intensity lights all round. Action from my first two flights after showing the kit itself before assembly.

Exploring the slow flight characteristics of this model after a lot of feedback suggesting it 'flies like a rocket'. Just proves how wrong folks can be!

Avios Spitfire MkVb (fast/slow passes and scale aerobatics)
Some really nice scale details on this Spitfire. Flap indicators, cockpit detail, split flaps and hidden control surface linkages to name a few. Vid of my first flight. Immediate confidence to strafe the strip with fast passes but mixed in slow passes to show it's broad ability...and some scale aerobatics.

The Spitfire is already an admirable beast, but the C-130 is impressive with its functionalities! The cargo door is remote-controlled, you say? Do you think it would be possible to do a low pass over a landing strip and drop a small tank model on there? It would be by far the most impressive feat I'd have seen from a RC plane!

Sorry to not answer your question sooner. I didn't get an email notification that there had been a reply. Yes - it would be possible to achieve that. I dropped parachutes although the lines did get a bit tangled.

Take a ride onboard the huge Avro Vulcan Bomber flown by Dave Johnson, UK Large Model Association (LMA) Chairman. After he gets in the air the Valiant and Victor bombers flown by his son and grandson, Andy and Adam, take off and catch up for some formation flying.

This is a regular video containing 360 panoramic clips that have been animated to capture the optimum action.

The Avro Vulcan is powered by four 100N turbine engines and has a 20 foot wingspan !

Never owned a flying boat. Just a handful of parts in the box so very quick to assemble. Electronics all installed, servos already hooked up to control surfaces and decals applied. Just drop in RX, setup your radio and ready to go.

In all my years of filming RC I have not seen an RC Gloster Javelin flying before so it was fantastic to see Joe's new turbine powered version of this jet at the North London Model Flying Club Scale Day event. You can see the effects of the wind turbulence on this jet through its low fast passes and on final approach. Joe is an experienced pilot so gave us an excellent demo despite the conditions. Almost a perfect flight until he touched down and lost one main wheel...but no harm done.

SAB Avio Havok and Drake 3D thrust vectored jets
Very unique and distinctive new RC jet aircraft designs from SAB Avio. You would think the Havok was inspired by Star Trek's Klingon Bird of Prey spaceship. Amazing aerobatic capability in the hands of the right pilots...and these guys were the right pilots. Filmed at Weston Park International Model Show near Telford, UK.
