Toroweap, Grand Canyon AZ today


Looks like I'm the 1st on RCgroups to post Toroweap pics and videos
the 3000ft drop down to the river makes airplane take off easy !

Vimeo Videos

Flying inside and above Toroweap - 3000ft deep narrow canyon (2 min 11 sec)


RC plane gets in and out of 3000ft canyon - Toroweap (1 min 11 sec)


oops.. rcgroups won't upload jpg ? will wait a bit and post them later

I tried to fly close to river to picture inner canyon but it was bad idea - almost lost the plane, it was shaken by strong cold wind all the time so all pics from above ot North Rim level.

Upload still unavailable so here is direct:

Great shots, but what are you encoding those videos with. I can`t get any media player to open them without getting an error message. you should convert them to something readily available to all computer users like windows media or
quicktime.

I agree with Duck. Number 3 is stunning. The contrast between a variety of orange hues in the foreground to darker red in the background is unbelievable with a mirror-like reflection of the water. So much natural beauty!
