So, I am on pins and needles to see a couple shots of Unleashed around the pylons with all 4 cylinders of fury beating back a Legacy or two.. :)

Anybody get any good shots?

Thanks,
Tom
Unleashed Race #55


P.S. Here is a join up video from Tuesday practice. More helmet cam video to follow.

Freakin Awesome!!!

Do you mind if I share these on the Unleashed Facebook page?

A few things I can tell from the pics. The engine isn't yawing in the mount at all, as the spinner to cowl line is the same. So thats good. The flaps are in the reflexed position, higher than it looks like from the cockpit. I don't have a good angle on them while flying, so its hard to tell. Also note the amount of nose down trim, and the elevator deflection.. Yeah, that is going to be the next project.

I'm working on the helmet cam video now. I'll post some more later tonight, hopefully... I think I'll do a combination of all the starts, as that is the most exciting part of each video. The rest is just me trying to stay out of Dave Morss' wake turbulance. haha

Hey thanks for the support! I hope you like the corrected shirt! haha It is almost as hard to design, make, collect money, and ship shirts as it is to get the damn airplane done. I'm thinking next year about paying the RARA fee and just having a store in my pits, with shirts a bit cheaper that way. Maybe sell more, offset the fee's, and come out ahead. We'll see.

Thanks again!
Tom

You're welcome to share mine, as long as you include the credit I put on the photos. I wish there were more, but I didn't work the Sport Class much this year. I tend to shoot people I know, and my friends. I really don't know many folks in your Racing class these days...

Good luck, and Thanks for racing!

It took me a while, but here are the starts and extras from my helmet cam. I'll post an un-cut video of the silver race soon.

Great video Tom! I really like the low-key music, your comments and hearing the radio calls. Looks like you had a great week flying with Dave.

Well it took forever, but I edited out the silver race, un-cut. Sort of..

Be sure to watch in HD.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDAfe3n01roI've always liked the helmet cam view.. like you said in your text information embedded in the video, the best view to experience the feel of flying a race...

<dumb question> One question, is that as fun as it looks? </end dumb question>

:D :D :D

2012 Highlight Reel

Some good Reno clips, and a bit of the other flying I did this year with Unleashed. The stuff I recorded anyway..
