Looking for some online clips of pylon racing


I have never actually seen a pylon race and was wondering if anyone knew of any sites that had some clips on it. Thanks

Well, www.radiocarbonart.com has pylon racing in its Electric Airshow 2. It's a pretty nice video with lots of performance airplanes and even scale and slow fly. There use to be a website that had a speed 400 pylon race on it but I couldn't find it. Maybe Greg. G knows ehat I'm talking about. It had a bunch of MWE videos on it from somebody's personal Hi-8 video camera.

There would be nothing to see, except for a bunch of heads following what must be models moving rather quickly around the course!
I have three hours of DV from SD MWE this year, not much of the pylon or F5B footage works well online, OK on a big screen however..

Foxtrot,
I found the video I was thinking of on my hard drive (7megs in Windows Media Player format). I tried to email it to you but either it failed or your email on your profile has changed. I can send it to you if you want. It might take a while to download but it actually is a really nice example of a Speed 400 race with fast planes.

Foxtrot, here is a page with a few videos from <a href=http://www.angelfire.com/ca7/mwe2/ target=blank>MWE2001</a>. There is at least one video clip from the SP400 pylon races there. There is another page with more videos <a href=http://www.angelfire.com/ca7/mwe/ target=blank>here</a>. I'm the guy flying someones little T-tail racer at the beggining of the "Launching" clip on the second link. I don't know who it was but he wanted me to test fly his plane there. Brave soul indeed!

Troy, your F-16 flew great and sounded soooo cool. I'm glad there is a video to see, and hear!

Thanks Greg. It's kind of wierd but the sound seems as if it's about 3-4 seconds behind the video. Could have occurred when the video was digitized.
