Thank you now that is a kind compliment, if my scale models are looking like the real thing! Changed the title to this thread as I have a few stills off go pro.
The largest RC plane I have 1700 span FMS Super Cub, very STOL capable.
The Multiplex Funcub has almost cult-ish following in the rc world, really nice flyer and again a great STOL rough field job.
The other end of the Cub story an Eflite Cipped Wing Cub inverted over the local golf club, quite aerobatic, 1200 span.
Artech Pelican STOL, has a few interesting features, the leading edge slats droop with the flaps and she has a parachute drop hatch. Came with tricycle gear, call me old school converted her to a tail dragger, 1100 span.
Added spotty paint as well just for fun.
Fly this one a lot as it is often windy where I live and she's slippery so can handle a bit of breeze, 1500 span Eflite Consendo, such a nice all rounder, slope soar, sport aerobatics and strong-ish winds.
Some really great photography there! Incidentally in your shots of your "spotty" plane, is that a parachute in second pic? Absolutely marvellous views of the local topography too. You seem to have a good camera on the job (and know how to get best from it). David D
Thank you David, they are just screen shots off Gopro footage with a bit of post production, only ever get good shots when the sun is bright and shinning on the subject also helps when the surrounds are nice as well.
Whoops, missed the parachute, yeah the spotty plane has a hatch operated off a servo for parachute and/or lollie drop!

Much modified J3, added flaps, modded tail wheel, tundra tyres, and paint, such fun to fly around 670mm span.
2 cell Mustang 493mm span
Another Mustang back dated from a D to a Mk III, scratch built the razorback and canopy, painted as a 3 Sqn machine with the RAAF in Italy.
One of my favourite ultra micro fliers, a modified 493mm P51D to a CAC15 “Kangaroo.”
Plus I love her story, the real machine was all built in Australia under a design team led by Fred David who also designed the Boomerang. As much as she looks like a modified Mustang the fuselage was longer and she was powered by a Griffon 61, the only Mustang components used in the real machine, the main landing gear.
