According to the air show announcer, this P-38 is valued at 14 million dollars.

I was lucky enough to photograph the RAAF's first F-35 at the 2017 Avalon Airshow. 1Dx + 300mm IS II + 2x Extender III.

These were all shot as JPEG's, before I understood about RAW files. These are from the 2014 Pikes Peak Regional Air Show

Alan you are correct about the majority of today's ARF (Almost Ready to Fly) pilots but the fact is there are people who simply want to fly R/C & who have little to no interest in building or even repairing. It's also cheaper to buy an ARF than try to build something similar. There are still lots of builders out there & I'm in that group. Back when I switched from free flight to R/C I also built my radio & servos using Heathkit stuff, AND I do not like the plastic shrink covering either. I'm a silk & dope guy.

I never got the RC bug, but my father (he's 75) has been flying (and building) since he was a kid. He also did the Heathkit as well. Miss the smell of silk & dope too...lol!


Perfectly Frank wrote in post #18389335 (external link)
Oh, I remember Heathkit. I built their multimeter & o-scope. Uh-oh, showing my age! ;-)a


PhotosGuy wrote in post #18389401 (external link)
I did the radio control, darkroom timer, 2 stereo receivers, & was sorry to see them go out of business.

My dad started out with a Macgregor single channel radio, and then built a Pecon 4 channel digital proportional kit. After that he moved to using Futaba radio gear, staying with an original Futaba Digimax 4 until well into the 80's. I know he stuck to using 27 Mhz for a very long time too.

Oh and you do all know that Heathkit (external link) is still going an producing electronics kits.

Some superb replica RC stuff with Ducted Fans I have seen over the years at airshows, If memory serves me right I think one such bestie was a Large Victor must have been 20 odd feet wingspan when they started that one up you could feel the thrust from it a few feet away as it moved some platic chairs, it was close to public areas in the static along with other amazing RC Scale planes.

Watched the Thunderbirds practice at Dayton on the 22nd of June. Had planned on getting some shots on Saturday or Sunday, but the accident with one of them on Friday kept them grounded over the airshow weekend.

First time shooting aircraft, so please go easy on me!

Bit of advice please. I see some of you guys use quite lower shutter speeds to get nice prop blur. Are you using mono-pods or tripods at those speeds as the rest of the aircraft are lovely and sharp? Thanks, Chris

Nice work for your first time, and interesting subjects!

I always shoot hand held, it gives me more flexibility as stuff is careening across the sky. It takes practice, and you do end up with stuff that's blurry or cut off, but keep working at it if you can and you will get some winners.

There's some help in post #5 in First shoot with moving cars need advice.

I don't use a mono-pod or tripod for these. At the start of the year, it helps to do some practice with traffic to get used to keeping one focus point of the same part of the subject. That keeps your pan smooth. How about this F4U-5 Corsair? ; )

Thanks for the advice folks.

Some of the shots I was referring to are taken at 1/60 which gives a lovely 360 degree prop blur. No way could I handheld a longish zoom at that speed.

Whilst I'm OK at panning I'm worried about vertical shake.

As you say, practise!
