Default WW1 aircraft display Wanaka 2012 Vid

For my Anzac contribution this year I posted a short vid on utube of the WW1 aircraft display on the 07 04 2012 at Warbirds over Wanaka.
Weather was perfect, unfortunately I forgot my tripod but came out ok I think.
Drove for 15 hours to get home & get it done before midnight.
Hope you enjoy it.
Some of the WW2 aircraft & Jet's to come !!.
Steff.

Those were gorgeous! I notice the pilots were blipping their throttles to simulate the "no-throttle" ignition kill-switch behaviour of the rotaries - unless they actually had rotaries in the Camel and the D-VIII?

That's great, didn't know there were commercially-made rotaries out there. Only working model rotary I've seen is this home-build in a 1/3 scale Avro 504 [link=http://modelrotaryflyer.tripod.com/avro.htm]http://modelrotaryflyer.tripod.com/avro.htm[/link]. The engine itself is more work than I can imagine putting into an RC model
