Probably the best example of a large scale Sea Fury you will ever see. Sounds awesome and looks stunning...and it's scratch built! A highlight from the UK BMFA Power Nationals.

Superb Avro Vulcan XH355 bomber from master builder Tony Nijhuis. Fitted with 'after-burners' and at 98 inch wingspan it makes quite an impression. Flown at Southern Model Show to a very appreciative crowd.

Wasn't aware these projectiles could get THAT quick. I guess having a race tuned engine, very little fuel onboard to minimise weight and one wing helps ! Filmed in UltraHD / 4K. Watch out for the super slo mo at the end...it's still fast.

One of my favourite RC shows of the year. The Southern Model Show has a bit of everything. The temporary boating pond is used by about 10 clubs who demonstrate their various watercraft to the appreciation of the visiting public. A non-aero video I know...but the hovercraft is kinda flying...isn't it? ;)

Great to get a wing that just requires 4 screws to put together. No glue. Took more time to apply the 6 decals than it did to get it flight ready. 90cm wingspan so good size. Comes with everything pre-installed and a 3-in-1 cam/VTX/antenna that fits into a purpose made recess in the wing. Needs a 3S2200 up front. Has 3 different nose covers for different HD cams. My RunCam2 slotted in perfectly. Also 2 ply frames for even greater flexibility. Would need lead up front if you don't drop in a cam. Easy to self launch with 2/3 power. Has good turn of speed but isn't ballistic. Needs a gyro as did get bumpy when I was flying in moderate wind. Priced low at $80 (link is in the vid description). Looking forward to some FPV racing with this with my buddies.

Sadly the flying season has ended but it has been another good one. I clipped together my first 2017 montage. Looking forward to the 2018 season. Think I'll compliment my filming with some of my own flying next year.

WW2 Warbirds and turbine Jets in the same slot at the BMFA Nationals. Some skill required to keep these models in close formation but it worked so well.

Normally lucky to see two of these amazing machines in the air but the annual BMFA Power Nationals is a bit special. Here we got six and all flew to perfection by their owners.

Scale perfection arrives in the form of this scratch built Westland Wyvern which was displayed by Pete Fullard at the BMFA Power Nationals.

Once these things get into their groove they scorch around the track...this was quite a close run race...

The Fun Fighters are always a highlight of any Show they take part in. I've seen them at several shows this year and with Daren Graham and Mark Aubrey leading them they can't but fail to have fun and put on an entertaining flying slot for the public. These are small, fast and easy to build WW2 kits available from http://www.funfighters.co.uk. Here's a vid of these awesome models in action.

Simon Potter flying his superb L-39 Albatros at a Jet Modellers Association meeting at the BMFA National Visitor Centre in Buckminster, Lincolnshire. This model is decorated in the scheme of the Baltic Bees Jet Team. Simon is obviously a fan and who can blame him. If you watch videos of them performing you can see what he is trying to emulate in terms of flying style.

Steve Johnson, regular UK RC Show pilot, flies his new A-10 at BMFA National Visitor Centre in Buckminster. This Skymaster A-10 is 1:6.25 scale with length 2552 mm (101.3”) and wingspan 2784mm (109.6”). Dry weight is 20kg to 22kg (45-48Lbs) and the model needs 13-15 servos. I took a bit of creative licence and added some real GAU-8 gatling gun sound as its unique to the A-10. Steve told me he intends to get a backing sound track together with A-10 live firing to compliment his aerobatic display at shows next year. Looking forward to it !

The 'Ghost Squadron' give a superb demonstration of both unpowered and powered gliders at the BMFA Power Nationals 2017. The Minimoa is a classic design with its gull wings. It gets pulled up by a tug fitted with a 100cc engine. The racing glider is powered by an electric motor with a single blade propellor that is automatically deployed from within the fuselage into a vertical position before it starts up.

Luke Metcalf, assisted by his Father Paul, flying this in true scale style at the BMFA Power Nationals 2017. Lightning by name and he flies it like Lightning. I had trouble keeping up with my camcorder. Full after burners and tight turns. TERRIFIC !

Built by Trond Hammerstad from Norway from the Airworld Modellbau kit. 9 litres of fuel onboard in two 4.5 litre tanks.
Scale: 1/5
Span: 176 cm
Length: 284 cm
Engine: B300F turbine (320N thrust)

Crazy fast 200mph+ pulse jet control line action from the BMFA Power Nationals. I can't comprehend how you control the pitch on these models while they are travelling at these speeds while keeping balance. Compelling to watch !

Always great to see control line racing at the 'Nats'. I don't get to see it anywhere else.
