Hey Steve/JW/Jo: Whats your guess at the max forward speed of those Phantoms?

WOW Glenn, I don't know at this point…um….faster than I can control it? They climb like the proverbial BOOH!

What a great portrait Jay!

BTW, I meant to, but haven't, commented on Jan Arie's foray into portraiture…….loved them! Hands down favorite is the little guy headed out the door. The composition, lighting, DOF, the whole package just warms my heart!

Yeah; what Jim said!
They climb fast and fall slower.... They come down faster if you put some sideways motion in there. I find myself having to do a falling-leaf type manouver if I want it to come down quickly, and in the same general bit of sky.

Spitfire painted in the colors of Cmdr Al Deere and owned by Brendon Deere, his grandnephew (I think). Warbirds Over Wanaka 2014.

Thanks, Jim!

If I could bottle the magic that happens on some panning passes, I'd really have something. At 420mm and 1/60 sec, to have that second shot be a) fully within the frame and b) tack sharp is little short of miraculous. And I have 15,000 other frames from that airshow to prove it!

The rest doesn't matter Zim, what you captured and posted does, and they are outstanding.

Just finished installing new props and updating all the firmware/software in the Phantom and the Zenmuse. Now to get up to speed on the Black Pearl HD monitor. Got Sheila's attention tonight, after the updates, when I fired the Phantom up in the middle of the family room

Exxxaaaaactly! Given the standards we hold ourselves to here, my guess us most folks would be ecstatic over having captured most of the other 15,000 as well.

Welcome to MA2A, Itsed65. Neat shot of the Galaxy. Now that you have broken the ice and posted here, please hang around and post when you can. I am looking forward to seeing more from you.

Regards, Colin
