No. Don't like tripods. Tried them a couple of times but they get in the way. I use 2 bodies/lenses, with a 1DX2 + a 500/4 + 2x extender and a 5D4 + 100-400 + 1.4x extender.

I use the 1DX2 combo for single airframes in flight and 5d4 combo for take-offs, landings & formation shots. I find the 5d4 combo allows me to get slow shutter speed shots, as it's quite lightweight and 4 stop IS helps out a great deal. I practice a LOT, i'm usually shooting some sort of prop at least once a week so I have my technique down pretty well. It's purely a case of numbers, as in, started out at 1/250th, got good keeper rates, so went down to 1/200th, then 1/160th, 1/100th, and I now pretty much shoot at 1/50th. I love the subject isolation that low shutter speeds give you and the prop blur is an added bonus.

On the 1dx2 kit, I shoot at 1/250th. It's just too heavy/unwieldy to get a smooth panning action so I just don't bother. Then again, I am shooting at 1000mm @ 1/250th, so I reckon that's a pretty decent effort anyway.

Good info here, thanks for sharing. Your photography is fantastic.

Were all of your 100-400 photos using the 1.4x, or just some of them?

I pretty much shoot exclusively with the 100-400 + 1.4x and 500/4 + 2.0x extenders.

I find that the extenders don't hamper the AF or IQ in any way, and when using full frame, need all the reach I can get. That said, I'm sure it'd be completely different if you were using a crop sensor.
