Oh yes! Winter RC Flying

Nothing better than getting out of the house into the fresh crisp air with deep blue sky’s and plenty of sunshine.  My local club the “Rideau RC Flyers” put the word out on Friday that the weather was looking great for Saturday Feb 4th.  So out like groundhogs they came!  I brought along my camera and had a great afternoon of shooting the action.  For me the sharp contrast of snow, blue sky’s and colorful airplanes made for fantastic photo shoot.  We had about 10 guys come out during the day and everyone had a good time.  Temp -5 degrees C with light winds made for ideal conditions.  I look forward too sending in some spectacular shots I got latter this week.

Go to my VIMEO to see a extended slideshow video of the action: http://vimeo.com/36507079

It seems winter flying is very popular with everyone

Doug Culham was flying this electric SIG RASCAL
