I've been ready for 2 weeks now - but the weather has other ideas

It's an RV-6, 160 hp with full inverted systems to go with the Pitts. Brand new, never flown, built over the last 18 months from a 16 year old untouched kit I found in a barn.

A bit of a "crossover" film this time. Some of the sequences are shot from a Multiplex R/C "Easystar"

Cloud Dancing on the "Bullet Train" (4 min 14 sec)


As soon as the weather improves there's plans afoot to try some air to air shooting with R/C & the Pitts. Ideally we need either a static quad copter or a 100+ mph fixed wing platform.

Methinks the fist stage will be "flypasts" of a quad copter in static hover at about 50'

Can't wait to get started !

Here's a 3 minute video of a trip around Scotland last weekend.

The Aeroplane is a Zenair CH601.

It's kit built from aluminium and pop rivets, the kit costs about 14k here in the UK - much simpler to build than many models I'd say.

It flies at around 100mph using 14 litres per hour. Range is 6 hours - so you can really go places (as the film shows I hope)
