Hi everyone... Post your most or one of your most impressive photos in flight. I took this photo of our club president's Rascal 110 yesterday on 03/13/04.

Used a Canon A80 Digital Camera[sm=wink.gif]

I don't know that I'd call it "impressive" but here's one like yours of a ZagNutz on the last sortie of the day.

No need to apologize, I think the colors look great on the wing. It is different...

Taken at The Rock near Castaic before all the fires.

Only a little bit of cheating with Photoshop...

Depends on your relative frame of reference.

Yep, That is an Uproar60 with a Tower Hobbies .75 engine on the front. I was doing an inverted pass, which is my favorite pastime with the Uproars (I have an Uproar 40 that has exactly the same covering scheme).

Great flying planes. I have one of the 40 sized ones with an OS .32SX engine. Every time I do those low inverted passes my Dad freaks out and makes me even more nervous than I already was. Just to bug him, I sometimes roll it during takeoff as soon as I get enough altitude to clear the wingtips.[>:]
How differently does the .60 fly from the .40? Heard they wont roll as fast.

The roll rate isn't quite as fast, but still faster than most planes. The 60 is still my favorite of the two.

To be honest DTB, I'm not sure how high the plane was. I could go higher, but I'm not sure what my max radio range is. One day I'll get an altimeter gizmo and try again.

Anyone care to guess on the Stinsons altitude??

Honestly, if I hadn't seen the servo rod coming out of the wing, I would have thought it was a full scale shot.

Nice photo again.
