Classic Aero-TV: The Nature of Airventure-A Unique Look at the Planes of Oshkosh

Aero-TV Takes A Creative Look At The Wilder Side Of Oshkosh

When videographers and writers start to look at airplanes in that way, strange things can happen. We call our airplanes "birds." They have names like KitFox, Goose, BearHawk, and ... yes ... Cub.

While at eFest 2015, ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, took the time to talk with Jack Marck, the foam category marketing manager for Horizon Hobby. When we use the word “foam,” we’re talking about extremely light-weight RC model airplanes that are constructed out of various types of plastic foams. The subject of this discussion was all about FPV. “First Person View,” is referred to in the modeling world as FPV. In this type of RC model flying the pilot controls the plane by actually viewing the flight as if being positioned inside the cockpit. It’s about as real as you can get and still have both feet firmly planted on the ground.
