Cool photos!! I've not flown RC for quite a while, everything is in the loft/attic (2 helicopters, 1 powered aircraft and one glider) and probably would love to come out to play.

You have done well to capture the in flight shots and good use of a 1/90th shutter speed with the last two so you have not frozen the prop. It looks as if the pilot is a little blurred due to movement but nothing too bad. Might also be worth cropping some of this one down as the extra sky is not adding to the final shot.

I would love one day to fly jet or at least ducted fan.

Do you fly or were you just there photographing?

[align=left]Thank you for your reply, and I will crop the sky a bit. This was the first time I had a chance to watch friends fly their rf planes and chopers. I was not able to capture the nitro gas powered jets after take off. The speed and altitute is really amazing, and the desert strip is huge. My longest lens 28-300 mm is not up to the task.

I know that too well from past shooting of RC Aircraft. One of the best things is to be near where they rotate and leave the ground on takeoff and then move the other way for landing as both times the speed will be lower and you can generally get some background in.
