Default Ocala Florida Air IMAC Show

Hello All,
First time i went and accualy watched an event like that today,And i have to say it was great loved watching those big planes. But was really groovin on the freestyle part of it there was a young man in the basic class i think they said flying a Cap with smoke and he was amazing did some very nice moves very very close to the ground and brought it in for a sliding harrier at the end and tossed the prop but he put on one H#LL of a show.
It was great fun. To anyone who flew that event today thanks for something new and intresting to me you were all great..

No i tried to video tape it but camera kept going out of focus from the light changes. Is there a list somewhere on the net where they tell locations of all these events? I stumble accross this one when i stoped by the local hobby store..I also wanted to ask about a manuver i seen there wasnt sure what to call it a guy there had his plane going tail over nose spinng on almost an axis, The spinner and prop beeing the axis like tumble towards the ground? Anyone know what this is called?

Yes, I think this board has an events calendar. Try the link above or ask bpryor or bprior, he is a moderator.

Default CAMERA FOCUS

Hey POWER6. Try setting your video camera to manual focus and then manually focusing it 100 to 150 feet past the runway. This will keep the camera from hunting as most cameras use contrast to keep them in focus. A buddy of mine showed this to me at full size airshow. Works for our models too.
