Joe Nall 2015 - Jets and Other Flying Things 5/18/15

           From Jim Alvord, Webmaster Macon Aero Modelers.

      Welcome back Fly-In on May 30th - checkout the MAM Calendar!

      Videographer Lou Vitale captures the excitement that is Joe Nall for us!

      Thius week I received a couple videos from our class 1 videographer, Lou Vitale that I've enjoyed watching over several times. The first one is a test flight of the "Inspire 1" drone with it's articulating arms and fully directional camera. It seems to fly as good as it appears to be constructed. Watch for yourself and see it run through it's paces. Verticle and horizontal flight are very quick and it hovers beautifully.

     The second video is about Bob's new Gyrocopter. Unlike a helicopter with variable pitch blades for verticle maneuvering, gyrocopters use the spinning blades as a wing surface for lift. It's a more unique form of flying. Bob's gyro has a pre-rotator for the main blades to assist on takeoffs and landings, as opposed to an auto-gyro which uses the air through the main blades to make the disc spin. Once airborne the pre-rotator motor is turned off and the gyro is powered only by the airflow as normal in gyrocopters. Very unique old style of aircraft. Lots of fun to watch!

      I'd like to thank Lou and Bob and everyone else at OTX for providing the many videos of good and not-so-good flights for your entertainment here, sometimes at major personnal exspence. RC Flying is not free, but it's a lot of FUN for very little money in retrospect compared to the hours of enjoyment and personnal satifaction it brings you. Come out to OTX and see for yourself!
