RC Airplanes and Helicopters

Every year I shoot a quick video for the local RC Airfield, the Camarillo Condors. Here's 2010's installment.


This is a great hobby, the only challenge is that if you get the chance to fly an RC you'll have to put down your camera...

Happy New Year!

It is always good to see people at the best of their craft. The first helicopter scales so well in flight it could be a miniature for a feature movie. Thanks for the post.

I note your address as Thousand Oaks. Rusty Geller SOC who is now in Western Australia used to live up there. How did you fare with the fires a while back?

Jamie does have a lot of money tied up in his RC's, this is only a few of what he has and he pays a lot of attention to detail. It was a lot of fun, and challenging shooting this.

I'd love to talk to Rusty, I'm from Geelong and now live in Thousand Oaks. It would be interesting to hear how he likes it.

Thanks for watching and leaving feedback.

He has a website

Rusty Geller


If you like aircraft, I have not long ago uploaded some old VHS to YouTube here :-

YouTube - Last Beaufighter Engine Run 1983 at Moorabbin Victoria Australia.


There was a scale builder who consulted my father before he flew his scale Beaufighter. My father suggested, "I hope you have better luck than I did with the real thing". The Beaufighter apparently had a bad reputation for swing on take-off and on landing and my father had such an experience which wrote the aircraft off.

Some time later he asked the builder how he got on, the reply "it crashed".


Regards.

Bob Hart.

Great Video

This is a great video. Excellent cinematography and fantastic modelling too. What camera did you use Chuck to capture these fantastic shots?
