This is video footage of one of the jets that has inspired my love of aircraft over the years and ultimately inspired me to get into the RC Hobby. My F-18 was the second RC Plane that I purchased and the jets I saw over the years at the Abbotsford Airshow were the inspiration to learn to fly RC.

I am very proud of the video I recorded of a CF-18 Hornet at the 2014 Abbotsford Airshow. The practice I gained from recording RC Flight certainly paid off with this as it is very fast and tough to track with its dynamic flight capabilities.

Enjoy!

This is one of only two de Havilland Mosquito WWII Warbirds or "Mossie" as it is also known in the world that flies. It was one of the highlights of the 2014 Abbotsford International Airshow and I am very happy to have this video footage I took of it tearing up the skies over the border.

It was a great experience to say the least and as good as this video is, it doesn't do justice for this plane. This one is recently restored and one of only two that fly in the world. It is still so new and shiny that is looks just like the Parkzone Mosquito Mk VI version that some of us have flown and others of us have considered purchasing. Part of the reason for the shiny new paint is that its restoration was complete this June, so it is pretty much brand new!

So I dusted off my Hobbyzone Champ this afternoon and quickly remembered why I still keep this plane programmed into my TX. This was a windy day flight, but boy was it fun with some bloopers and near misses:

This video shows just a sliver of the talent my flying mentor John has when it comes to flying RC Planes.

You will see that he does some 3D Flying with his Pau Edge 540 DA100 36% Scale RC Plane. He can do a lot of stunts and tricks I don't know that names of yet, but I am sure I will someday lol
