  Not to be outdone, here is Michael flying his big 1/4 scale Tiger Moth. This plane never disappoints and is always flown in a very scale manner. This particular shot is from August 12th.

  Here is a shot I took of Bruce's Sopwith Tri-plane. It looked so good against the Blue sky that I had to submit this shot. Given that this is a modified Se5a, it shows the skills and ingenuity that is alive and well at TEMAC!

   Another shot for Bruce.

   This was from the same flight as above.

Thanks Glenn, ( @electroflyer ) Great photos.  You have the distance down just about right.

It is a coincidence, I just had my 'stand-way-off-scale' Sopwith Triplane out flying the other day.  It flies surprisingly well, for having been put together from two crashed SE5As.  (Putting the record straight - even the CFI can really crash em and modify/rebuild em.)

Not sure who took this, I’m afraid, but I do love this shot of my Phantom, too.

??? In among TEMACs photos- Owner of plane and photo credits unknown. 

(I think the photo is Hoffers.  He's the only one I know who will get down with the crickets.)

Love these photos of the large E-Flite Trojan that I owned for 1 day. It was Michael’s and is now Glenn’s.

The photo in post 21 is Andy's but the model is the Norseman I built at the first year's build classes. It's a decent size at 2100 mm ws. and is still flying a few flights a year. I'll look for a photo for the collection.

I think Graham took this one at a Rob Pike Float Fly at Frenchman's. There was a mooring buoy 15-20' out from shore and I nailed it! The cross strut bounced off the floating buoy and the model continued on and made its landing!

Think most of you have seen this one, but I had to include it as my dad took it when he was 90 years old...it's my FlyFly 90mm F-86  with Callie graphics.

This photo, by Andy, is from 2014. The model is my kit-built Top-Flite DC3 (twin E-Flite 32 brushless motors).

Hey @electroflyer ,

Thanks so much Glenn.  That is a beautiful shot of my Pitts, and definitely an inspiration to get the repairs done.

This was taken back in 2013 at a Scugog Float Flyers session. I can't find the original digital image so this is a photo of a print, but I thought the photo still merited inclusion in the thread. It's an Electrifly Seawind EP about to touch down. Water this calm would be a nightmare for a full size but for the RC pilot, it's great stuff! I'm never quite sure if it's right side up or not!
