Neat stuff! I especially like the opening shot of a very good-flying rubber-powered indoor ff autogyro - I'm green with envy, as my efforts at that type of model have not been very successful! Nice shots also of a couple of mass lauches - one apparently of the RTF "Butterfly" (and/or its newer successor - the "Firefly") and the other apparently of a bunch of "Hangar Rats". Pretty good handlaunched gliders as well. And the last shot of the catapult-launched Wright Flyer! Cool!

When I saw the autogyro I was thinking of you, Kermit.

There is indeed a lot of neat stuff in this video. What a great venue they have, and a good crowd of modelers too. I would like to drop in on this group the next time I'm in England.

As a reminder, Cedric (who posted this video on YouTube) is the fellow responsible for the Harry Potter model posted on this blog last Halloween.
