Post WW2 Warbirds and turbine Jets close formation [UltraHD / 4K resolution] 
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.

Post Six giant scale radial engine powered Warbirds [UltraHD / 4K resolution] 
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.

Post Cambria WW2 Fun Fighters (easy to build kits and fast to fly) 
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.

Post 'Baltic Bees Jet Team' giant scale L-39 Albatros 
My buddy Simon Potter flying his superb Tomahawk Designs L-39 Albatros XXL 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.

Post Giant scale A-10 Warthog (with GAU-8 Gatling Gun Brrrrt !) [UltraHD/4K] 
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 !

Post 5 metre MINIMOA and single blade POWERED RACING GLIDERS 
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.

Post 200mph+ Pulse Jet model on a control line ! 
Some crazy stuff people do. This is a pulset jet powered model on the end of a control line with the other end secured to a steel post with the pilot in centre controlling the elevator/pitch via a handle that slides up and down the control line. Just a little frightening to stand that close and film this.

Before the days of RC...we had control line. Some still race with control line models today. Quite entertaining to watch. You get the impression that with one false move you could risk decapitation.
