R/C aircraft definitely look lot a more realistic when slowed down 10x... These scenes were filmed at the Crosswinds Radio Control flying field on 8-31-2013, using a Casio Exilim EX-F1 Pro high speed camera. Thanks to the pilots at the field for allowing me to film and enjoy the show!
Like many localities, the Santa Clarita Valley and surrounding areas have a local club for radio control powered aircraft enthusiasts - the Canyon Crosswinds (http://www.canyoncrosswinds.com). Their flying field is located on the bluff above lower Castaic Lake (known as "the lagoon"). Just about any weekend morning (and some weekday mornings), one can hear the buzz and see the sights of small (and not so small) fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters flying from nearly anywhere around the lower lake. Spectators are welcome to drop by the field to watch and learn more about this fascinating hobby.
The aircraft are both gas and electric powered, and are a great way to experience the fun of flying with only moderate expense. The radio control equipment can typically control the aircraft as far as you can see it. If equipped with a an FPV (First Person View) camera, the aircraft can send live video from the plane back to the ground, allowing the pilot to fly as if sitting in the aircraft. Just about the only thing missing is the wind in your face and the G-forces!
