Launched! Aerial photo thread.

Recommended Posts

Post the best pic you have of any Tamiya R/C you own (or used to own) with at least 3 of its wheels off the ground. Bonus points if you include a haiku about the image. :)

Don’t go to fast, Don’t go to slow

Nearing that jump, Here we go

Sliding up the face, the Hornet will fly

Through the air, soaring through the sky

It will touch down as gentle as a sack of rocks

No impact softened through the oil shocks

Struggling for traction with all of its oomph

Don’t matter what you do, it will stop on its roof

That is some serious air Pintopower. I guess it's true, Hornets really can fly! Loving the poetry too. "It's funny because it's true!"

Re-re Scorpion getting dirty:

And a haiku:

Despite what you'd guess

While jumping I never once

Hit the wheelbarrow.

Sunday morning can never come without

A flyin' Hot Soccer Mom

Not exactly the blonde 45 y.o. type, ya know.

A flying bull, whatever next,

All wheels rolling - bearing and hex,

To land with a skid, a slide and a flip,

Oh how I wish these tyres had some grip...

My TT-02B on the sands at Weymouth.

It looks like it's levitating!

This thread is AWESOME!

I love this thread.....the photos are fantastic!

Agreed.

And I am oddly enjoying the haiku too.

I would insist only 3 wheels are off the ground because 1) is that much more difficult to get it in photo :angry: 2) likely result in a crash :P and 3) likely very few photo will be submitted <_< Never mind.... :(
