    Annual Model R/C Show. Just happened to be in the area so thought I would check it out. Much cooler than I thought it would be. Thought it would be just a bunch of sellers and collectors, but they were actually running a show, much like an air show. Very fun to watch.

    1/3 scale models, made from kits and some scratch made.

    Olympus EM5 Mk II & 40-150/4-5.6R

    Harrier-ing. Maneuver named after the Harrier Jump Jet, where the model plane is controlled so that it holds position, almost still. Possible because of the torque to weight ratio of the models. This is something not capable in the full scale versions of these planes.
