So here's the first of many great videos I shot recently at the Hemet Jet Rally, in Hemet California !

First up is Jan Sundberg putting on a wonderful scale flight routine with his smoke equipped giant scale Top RC Hawker Hunter! This is an amazing model jet being powered by a KingTech K-160, being flown by an equally amazing pilot...

So here we take the little WPL Models Toyota J40 Land Cruiser out for it's first drive in the mighty Mojave Desert !
WPL Models Toyota J40 Land Cruiser - First Drive in the Mojave Desert! (13 min 56 sec)

Despite my rolling it a couple of times (which didn't really do any damage, surprisingly!), I think the truck itself did really well, and in some pretty brutal terrain at that...

Please watch the video in YouTube for best viewing and let me know what you think in the comments. I'm feeling my way through shooting video of surface vehicles so your input is greatly appreciated!

Cheers and all the best to you my friends

So I had my super nice UMX Carbon Cub out for fun in the sun at the dry lake in Newberry Springs a while back...:
E-flite UMX Carbon Cub SS - A Blast from the Past! (9 min 16 sec)

What a sweet old UMX: very fun and can be flown in some really tight places. Plus, she just looks so good in the air with those scale lines and very nice paint scheme. All in all, this one was a winner and really lead the UMX revolution!

Cheers everyone and happy flying

Chris went all out on this one, doing it up as a Gulf War era F-14B the "FLIR Cat". The cockpit detail is incredible, which is a shame as you can't really see it as the jet is zipping by...

Here's a fine example of a collaborative effort between Callie and a very skilled modeler...

This is Brent Hecht's rendition of Blue Angels #5 using a Freewing A-4 Skyhawk as the base model :
Freewing A-4 Skyhawk 80mm EDF Jet - Blue Angels #5 by Brent Hecht (6 min 5 sec)

Brent spent many, many hours priming, sanding and then priming and sanding again before final paintwork to achieve this very glossy finish. Callie's custom made markings finished off the project perfectly !

Hi friends !!

Today we're ringing in the New Year with something that's very different and unique for sure...

This is Rodger Hecht's 3D printed Avro Vulcan bomber flying at Rabbit Dry Lake a couple of days ago !
3D printed Avro Vulcan bomber (1m wingspan) with FMS 50mm EDF - SUPER COOL! (5 min 50 sec)

This super cool little EDF was designed as a collaborative effort by a father and his 13 year old son !!!

Here's the build thread:

I find it mind-boggling that folks are literally printing their own planes now, and still CANNOT get over how well this little bomber flies !

Cheers to everyone and all the best in the New Year
