I put together a little compilation from the US Scale Masters Championships. Though, I have a couple more feature videos coming on some secific aircraft, this provides more of the action and feel from the event. If you have ever considered scale competition, give it a try, it's great! Oh, and next week I should have a new tutorial vid posted!

Here's the second in my footage from the recently completed US Scale Masters National Championships at the Woodland-Davis Aeromodelers field (Sept 29 - Oct 2). This is a 1/3 scale BAE Hawk (Skygate kit) built and flown by Shailesh Patel. This airplane placed third overall in expert with a static score of 98.75 and average flight score of 95.5. Shailesh is a long time competitor of the scale masters as I remember watching him compete when I was a kid. He is without a doubt a master builder and pilot.

Another vid from Warbirds & Classics 2016. This PC-21 was big and it flew sweet! It was quiet, so the audio of the prop doesn't really pick up a ton.

Well, I finally got some footage of my A-7 that I didn't hate, haha! The airplane is a Jet Hangar Hobbies Kit with JetFan90 90mm EDF, Neu 1415/2Y motor and 12s 5800 mah battery. The paint scheme is from Desert Storm in a commemorative scheme from squadron VA-72. Even after 10 years, she's still fun to fly!

I got a chance to see (and also fly) the new Freewing Mig-21 that's soon to become available. This is a really cool looking model and is a great size for an 80mm fan.

Well, it was an awesome flight until the landing...which wasn't even all that hard. But, the load was still enough to snap the wing in half! You can't have an event without a little carnage I suppose...

The nice thing about wood ARFs is that they can be a great canvas for a refinish. With a glass job, fresh paint and some detail it really ups the realism. This was a Top Flite FW-190 that had that treatment done to it and it was sweet! It also sported a rare (and scale) Romanian paint job which added to its uniqueness.
