Rarely modelled Vickers VC10 Airliner

Building this is one thing...but having the skill to fly it indoors is something else. Great skill demonstrated by master aero-modeller Andrew White.

Flying with feathered friends with the PlanePrint Eagle

Takes a while to print out but the STLs from PlanePrint incorporate clever design features that make it very rapid to assemble and drop in the electronics.

Flying an RV8 from the FPV camera on the tail

Canopy plastic wasn't clear enough to put an FPV camera inside so I mounted it up on the tail. Nice view seeing the aeroplane in the foreground with the scenery below...

First time trying Spitfire formation flying with head tracked FPV

Our first time trying to fly Spitfires in formation. A few improvements required and I'll convert the 2nd Spitfire to FPV.

Scratch built indoor Fouga Cyclone jet sailplane

Beautiful and skilful aero-modelling. Despite being light this tiny electric ducted fan model is still quite quick and obviously challenging to fly in this sports hall.

Scratch built indoor Short Scion

Maybe not super scale but definitely super-light. Flies like a feather weight...

A highlight from the recent BMFA Indoor RC Scale Nationals. The most graceful entry in my opinion.

And actually flying with the FPV goggles. I got lost a few times ! So important to have a spotter.
