Vintage Model Airplane movies

Some of you might enjoy these vintage model airplane news reels from the 1930s-1960's on my YouTube page:

Model Airplanes from the 1930s-1960s (9 min 49 sec)

Flying Models, Britain Late 1940's (2 min 2 sec)

1936 Model Aircraft National Championship (2 min 28 sec)

Scale model airplanes from 1945 (1 min 17 sec)

Since I have to upload a video to qualify, here is some vintage free flight from the 1930's

Cool Movies

Those are great old films! Its really cool to see how far the hobby has come. I like how all those early airplanes had no controls installed and all the people would be standing in a big circle right in it's path on take off. Saw people running a few times. Then later they said "would you belive one even has radio control".

Love these old newsreels on UTube etc. Is there a way to save them as files on the hard drive or CD's?

WOW! Bomberguy, your last video on the British modeling has that fantastic Viper at the end of the line of the first group. I've got a small plan of that I was strongly considering doing for electric park flying.

Wouldn't they have gone nuts over some lipo's and some hot brushless motors? Very enjoyable.
