:o Wow that's impressive. That must be the best rust filter I've ever seen  ::) :D
The grass on the bank looks rusty  :P

great photo though TB  :)
that's a nice toy to get such a clear photo
Its not a still photo, its a frame from a video stream from a Runcam-HD (Go-Pro type action cam, only shaped more suitably for this application) - the silver box strapped to the top front on in Ianu's picture of it.  The actual onboard camera used for FPV flying is much lower quality (both in actual spec, and the end result), so grabbing frames from that is less clear, plus it has all the telemetry data splashed all over it.  If I'd remembered to take the lens cap off that camera (I was "doing a Terbs" and forgot), I could show you the side by side differences.

That one is a custom build, based on a Team Blacksheep Source One 7" frame and running iNav.  Thus hopeless for racing. Its more of a mid range easy flyer.  I'd guessed some people would want a go with it, so I brought the easiest to fly :), even if the gusty nature of the wind that day was causing a lot of buffeting.

One of the many others I have is a 5" with faster motors, running Betaflight.  Flat out, that's beyond my limits of flying - you can get in a whole lot of trouble in incredibly short periods of time...   ...racing quads needs the reactions of a teenager, and in my case, not helped by being prone to motion sickness, or my inability to stay standing when I have the goggles on ;D

Very clear image quality, given the height.  :y

I used to help my son build those fast RC cars when he belonged to a RC club. When I had a go with them, the RC car going away from you was easy to control, as left is left and right is right. However, when it's coming back towards you, things can get messy.   ::)

I used to do cars - mostly offroad electric, but some offroad nitro - back in the Kyosho Optima and Schumacher CAT days, and was a committee member of the Aylesbury off road club.  I used to enjoy the racing, but often missed my heats, due to either having to do the counting, or helping some of the younger members.  I eventually slowly gave it up, as to remain competitive meant a fortune on batteries and motors every 2 or 3 weeks.  I still keep in touch with some of the other guys who used to run it.

I still had most of my old cars and gear up until the garage incident.
