I know what you mean, the Tee copter, Y copter and the one with the yellow props is like that, no GPS but flying them FPV using Fat Sharks is easy as long as you keep moving forward.

1 time for old times sake, I'd like to see a pic with your whole fleet together. If that could ever happen. ;-)

My small drones are toys compared to yours.

List ...

P3S
P3P
Various mini / micro drones (10 in number) as tests for brand names.
Trex 450SE (2 of them)

Over 50 other RC - the main ones I fly being :

Skymaster Display Biplane (60 Glow)
FW190 (70 Four stroke)
Zlin Z50 (15cc gasoline)
Zlin Z50 (5050 electric)
WOT4
Avro Lancaster
Tiger Moth (2 of them)
Pitts S2 (55 Glow)
Polaris
Badius F3A
Hummer 3D
Katana 3D
Extra 300 3D (90 four stroke)
Various Cessna's (from small electrics up to 30cc gasoline)
EDF's such as BAE Hawks (3 of them), F16, plus scratchbuild Concorde and TU144

To be honest - its often a hard choice what to put in the van for a days flying ... having so many. I have an 'itch' to build and with a 3D printer as well as Laser Cutter ... I have a definite build hobby.

This is a piccie taken today of the inside of my dedicated model transport (Renault Master) ....



They are models that automatically go ... then I add maybe Lancaster or another ...

Here's a fun model ... profile Mig 29 prop in slot :



My 40year old display biplane ...



Hummer



And the Lancaster ....



Anyone wants to see crashes / maidens / shows / with all sorts of models ... my Youtube channel : "solentlifeuk"

Loads of early P3S testing ... various stuff ...

Very nice, I love speed...


Come on guys, and gals too, share your prize models with the DJI gang... thanks. ;-)

Even a single model will suffice, if that’s all, in your current hangar...

I had a fleet of airplane tails that I had kept for years to tell the tales. Finally had a bon fire and got rid of them. I self taught myself to fly and then flew hard fast and low.

I have a terrible habit of cutting it too fine too low !!

Smashed some very nice models due to wing tips catching when low and banked !! or pulling a loop about 1ft too low !!

Here's one of my flights in the 'Need for Speed' group that was on Wattflyer ..... one of my slower flights ...



This same model recorded a level flight speed of 222kph  .... which as far as I can tell still today is highest attained by the Parkjet in that group. I did hit an unofficial 235kph ... but didn't video !!

Crazy days !!

I also have EDF that hit 180kph and an EDF T45 converted to pusher prop that hits 200kph.
