R/C filming full size flypasts
| Aug 11, 2015 @ 01:29 PM | 891 Views
There's a password - "RC"
Shame it was not a smoother day - but we managed to stay within the safety brief and got the fullsize in shot every pass.
Trust me, it's much harder than it looks for the R/C pilot, mainly due to timing the pass and getting in the right place at the right time when you can't look at both aircraft at once.
the R/C camera ship was a multiplex Easystar with a gopro on the front, not that i'd want to test it - but probably not enough to cause serious damage to the RV in a collision.
A write off apparently - but no injuries thankfully.

Spin testing my RV

First ever spin of this (new) aeroplane.
Could well be the last as this type is not cleared for intentional spinning here in the UK
Many thanks to my test pilot. Looks tame on a computer, but in reality you need BIG balls (or a small brain
)to do this

1.5 years, 2200 hours work and she's finally ready to FLY !

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.

Cloud Dancing on the "Bullet train"

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 !
My last 12 months in 4m of film and photos.

New film - More of a Travelog this time
| Jul 17, 2014 @ 04:18 AM | 2,690 Views
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)
