Sweet! I love converted twins.

Also, I have a skyfun - just single prop on a 4s that we clocked at 137mph in a partial dive. I keep it in my trunk

Attended an all electric 3 day fun fly last week-end , Big Jolt. There's a thread on it I'm still cropping pics from my videos. Here's a sampling of some of the Kodak Moments I got.

Combat

Some cool shots from video taken during a Slow Stick vs Slow Stick dogfight using the Parkzone Sonic Combat Module. The blue SS is my brother's. Before I put the Navy paint scheme on, I left it red and put a tailgunner on it.

Sometimes a lousey picture has a special merit when viewed with artistic eyes.
My 14 yr. old son was flying his Xmas plane. A Hobby People Squall while I videoed the flight. It was an overcast morning with poor conditions for filming.
During editing I was dissapointed with my efforts due to my Canon Shure Shot being in an "Auto" mode I got a blurred foreground and background as I panned on the . plane .A couple of the still frames kinda grew on me as I viewed em cuz they're a little unusuall
