Essential RC at the BMFA Nationals 2017

Superb event and impossible to capture everything on video but will share my offerings here.

Designed; built and flown by Graham Dorschell this big 4 x 70mm electric ducted fan powered not only looks great but sounds fantastic in the air...especially on fly bys at low power.

Action from the BMFA Nationals Scale Free Flight competition on Saturday evening. My first time watching this event and was so impressed with the detail of these models. Quite apparent the effort that goes into designing and constructing them. Was really surprised to see a couple of electric ducted fan entries!

The BMFA Power Nationals is the biggest event on the RC UK calendar and practically impossible to get around and cover everything in the 2 days it is on. I spent a couple of hours at the Pylon Competition Line and filmed the action from different angles. 

This is Ollie Witt, on his way to becoming Pylon Champ. In this race I think it gives a clear perspective on exactly how much skill must be required to fly the course tight and at full speed. Filmed in UltraHD / 4K resolution.

Not only is this rarely modelled Blackburn R-1 superbly detailed on the outside, but you will see that great effort has invested in adding furniture, equipment and documents to the interior to make it even more realistic. Filmed at the BMFA Power Nationals. Filmed in UltraHD/4K resolution.

Probably the scariest thing I have ever filmed. This is a Dreadnought control line pulse jet flown in competition at the BMFA Power Nationals. I wasn't inclined to get too close to this projectile averaging over 200mph...

CARF 1:3.75 T-45 Goshawk flown at the BMFA Power Nationals recently by Paul Dunkley. Filmed in UltraHD / 4K resolution. Super scale model aircraft.

Probably the best example of a large scale Sea Fury you will ever see. Sounds awesome and looks stunning...and it's scratch built! A highlight from the UK BMFA Power Nationals.

Wasn't aware these projectiles could get THAT quick. I guess having a race tuned two stroke, very little fuel onboard to minimise weight and one wing helps ! Filmed in UltraHD / 4K. Watch out for the super slo mo at the end...it's still fast.

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.

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.
