Flutter-Bys are fun

I will post what I shot on Saturday and what I shoot today on Sunday later in the week. I have to drive back to Traverse City Michigan today and I was exhausted last night. I fell asleep at my computer and the TV was playing a football game and I woke up and went to bed.

I have to run a few of the photos through Gimp to make them look better.

Thanks for looking everyone. The air races were fun. I raced, my friends said after the heat I was in that they wondered if I entered the right contest. They all told me I was supposed to fly around the pylons, not try to do 3D between the pylons and my one lap lasted longer than all the other races 6 laps. I didn't hurt the airplane, but I provided everyone with many laughs and they wondered how I was allowed to fly in the dome, based on my pylon racing skills.
It was so funny.

More, later, will post them sometime on Tuesday after I vote.

I am not there at the show, but know they have the F-22 through Mountain Models. Here is a link http://www.mountainmodels.com/produc...roducts_id=637

I didn't get near as many pics as I wanted because the first time I went outside for a smoke break, two guys saw me walk to my car with my camera gear, so I kept my eye on them, and they just kept loitering around. So I had another smoke and kept watching them, and it soon became apparent that they were casing out me and the parking lot in general. They just kept standing around talking, and meandering around the parking lot. They didn't go in for the JR Festival, and they weren't interested in any golf activities. I waited for almost an hour and finally gave up and came home, because I didn't want to leave any expensive gear in my car with that suspiscious activity going on

The red and blue F-22 you see on the table at the 4 minute mark is mine and it is a dynamic foamy. I applied my own paint scheme. Flies great.

Made it home last night about 1:30 AM,. Left Columbus about 4 PM, slept in a rest stop near East Lansing about 2 hours or there about.

Pictures tomorrow from Sat, and Sunday will be posted tomorrow if I get them all done in time.

Thanks everyone for posting pictures and videos here. I really appreciate it.

These are what I shot on Sunday, hope the all the photos are helpful to those who can't or couldn't get to the JR Indoor.

This was the BEST EVER year, huge amounts of fun for many. Sunday had more fliers than any Sunday ever. Also

Best built up and scale model planes time ever. I don't think I have seen as many planes in this event ever. They were all neat to see.

So all of you who like to build and fly these time slots were great. I loved seeing all those planes. Some very creative people doing great work. Thank You builders. You All Rock!!!

Sean Cassidy did some great work. I have seen some of his work on other threads here on RC Groups.

Another video of Joe Smith doing what he does very well. Joe has some skills. No wonder everyone watches him when he flies.

What a joy to see this young man do so well.
