That's some impressive stuff there. Only thing that would have made that better is if it had retracts, but it's awesome anyway!  The wind was sure giving him a little grief though.

Very nice video Sparky.

I remember flying on one of those Connies when I was at my first permanent station in CA.
Must admit, the pilot in teh circle got his physical fitness exercise for the day.

all 4 motors ran flawlessly
that is a feat in itself

Retracts or not, the Connie is quite a model building accomplishment.  Thanks.

   That's absolutely awesome. The pictures in Dave's thread show the details, but the video tells you it's not a hangar queen.

Great video of the Connie.  One of my favorite airliners. H^^

They were magnificent birds, Doc.  My first time aloft in an airliner cockpit (along with my big brother, Gary) was as a just pre-teen on a night time ferry flight from BFI to SEA aboard a now extinct PNA (Pacific Northern Airlines, IIRC) Super Connie piloted by a friend of my Dad's, Dave Kellogg, who was a Captain for them. 

Second biggest thrill to just being in the cockpit was when Dave insisted Gary and I go back and check the engines to make sure they weren't "on fire" or anything...just a routine check, he added!  Gary and I strolled back to the wing and each looked out one side and quickly ran back to the cockpit to report that all four engines seemed to be on fire as they were streaming blue flame behind them.  Dave..after first advising there were no parachutes on board... then calmed us down.and told us "...don't worry.  That's normal!"  Yeah, right, we figured...but soon learned the blue flames came from the turbo compounded PRT (power recovery turbine) superchargers with which each engine was equipped which added some 500 or so HP to each P&W 3350 and the blue flame was their exhaust and it was, indeed, "normal".

Not sure either Gary or I believed it at first but, since there were no parachutes aboard, resigned ourselves to whatever fate awaited us.  Pretty much nothing but a grease job landing and taxi in at Sea Tac.

What magnificent airplanes the Connies were.  More sex appeal in the Gina Lollobrigida inspired fuselage of each one than in the entire fleets of jet powered Boeing, Douglas and AirBus clones that took their place.

What you do not hear too often is anyone accusing Pratt and Whitney of building the R-3350.

Not too often maintenance gets a free shot at flight ops personnel .  Lord knows they took enough shots at us.

I am joking. Please do not accuse me of mean and hateful comments, especially toward someone I do admire.

Just think how much more realistic this would look without the mufflers hanging out of the cowlings... If he did go electric he could then install one of Ram's speaker/sound systems and have the exact sound of a real Connie! Just sayin'... A great achievement in any case!

I was fortunate enough to have flown on a Connie from Atlanta to Tampa back in the 1950s. I'll never forget that ride!

+10.   It takes much more skill to build and fly a model using internal combustion than electric.  Adjusting the carburetors on all the engines like this guy did takes real skill.

I fly both electric and IC in competition.  They both take skill to build and make work properly.  One is not easier or better.  Simply two different approaches with different pros and cons.

Wish I could believe that.

One view of the inners of my electric twin with 3 electric retracts might change your mind as to just how challenging setting up some electric aircraft can be.

The model in the video did not have retracts.  But, for the sake of tranquility, I will agree you are right.  Operating an electric model is harder than a internal combustion one.

   Oh, come on! How much more realistic would it be if you made it twice the size and flew it on RC? If realism was the sole intent, that's the way to do it.

 It's the limitations that make the event. It's good as it is, we can just admire the accomplishment.

The problem with electric is that once you get the smoke generator and sound system installed, the plane is too heavy.

Double Deuce

O.M.G! DD got me for sure! 

Too many years and too many P&Ws in my life.  It was, indeed, Curtiss Wright that built the 3350s; swaddled in between P&W's 2800 and the corn cob; the 4360.  I, for sure, would'a flunked my flight engineer check ride aboard an old 3350 powered DC-7 if I'd come up with that answer during my oral!

Actually DD, in my little speech at United's 2003 SFO retirement banquet I thanked airframe/powerplant manufacturers and United's maintenance personnel for limiting my scary moments to a mere handful in 38 years of steering the stuff they handed us 365 days a year.  Sounds like I need to extend the same to you.

  It's the one featured on the cover and with an extensive construction article in the Jan 2018 issue. David and I did appearance judging at the NWR, and it's one of those airplanes that looks great from 10 feet away, and from 10mm away.

   The standards for workmanship just seems to get higher every year around here.

It is not only beautiful it's slippery.  I launched it and had to be careful not to let go too early!  Many congratulations to Chris, every model he makes is gorgeous but this one is over the top.  The two front rows at the NATS are all west coast, makes it tough on us mere mortals on a regular basis.

after being around Ed Mason and his multi engine glo's and helping dave Platt with his twin electric ship. I will say that keeping the four glo's running for the complete flight is MUCH harder

I just watched his flight again. He did a masterful job of flying. His execution was very realistic. And the plane looks awesome on the ground and in the air. A great accomplishment no matter how you look at it.

Sparky, I can understand how frustrating it must be to have some knuckle head give you a thumbs down.  I am not going to say don't let it bother you.  The truth of the matter is they are some poor excuses of human beings here on the earth and they are negative, negative about a lot of things.  There are negative about life, negative about their mom and dad.  There are negative about there job, marriage, their own children, they are just simply negative about everything.  The surprising thing is they have no clue that they have a PROBLEM!
 

 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

I got 2 Thumbs down on the last video already.

   I am not sure why you even care. You surely know that most people appreciate it, a couple of morons give thumbs down is irrelevant and they aren't the target audience.

 You can always find a few people to boo anything. All that means is that there are always a few d*cks in any crowd.      You could make a video about a cure for cancer and I guarantee there would be people on there objecting to it. It means nothing.

Thanks all for the encouragement, it just rubbed me the wrong way after a hot day on the L pad. To those who would rather watch Windy video's Please watch his 2018 coverage of the NATS. Noone of the Nays sayers has an idea of what is going on. I am live streaming when bandwidth permits Un-edited. I am taking movies and clips to be edited and uploaded from Home where I have the real bandwidth.

 I am actually trying to make the top 20 the rest is just an afterthought. I must concentrate on my first goal and the rest is just a bonus. Sorry for those who don't understand

Thank-you Sparky for all your efforts not just shooting Nats videos but running this site. For folks like me we cannot easily attend the US Nats the coverage is greatly appreciated. You are very hard working and probably do way more then most to support this hobby/sport and it is a great pity when efforts like yours go unappreciated by a small few that would not undertake what you do anyway.
Regards Gerald

Was Matt supposed to let the cat out of the bag about your new assistant?  I thought you were holding that until top five day to surprise us.

Oh well, multi "thumbs up" anyway!

Sparky you are doing the best you can.. and none of us can ask for any more than that.  Keep up the great work with the amazing effort you are putting in.. If I were there Id surely be helping as best as I could.

 Tight lines buddy
