I was invited to shoot some R/C boats today. The tiny ones can hit 120mph, so they have a lot on common with my experience with flying Dragonflys! Here's the results.
They have a few minutes to lap & when the time hits zero, they're supposed to all cross the start line together. Yeah, right! This was the only start that even looked like a real "START".
I was a bit dissapointed that it threatened rain all afternoon & there wasn't any sun to highlight the water droplets. PS to the rescue! This guy was "getting some air'!
The only other shot with three boats in it.
If it didn't have an antenna, it would almost look real!
The silver tube in the back is a muffler.
The larger boats use weed whacker engines. Here's a shot of it & one of the prop.
