No, not a big watch quite a small lens instead, I used them for engineering investigations during vehicle research on items from suspension articulation to water ingress into intake components or snow compaction within engine bays, electrical component splash vulnerability.......almost anything really that could not be correlated by instrumentation and needed visual observation, sometimes there is nothing better than the human eye/brain for evaluation.Great collection. What's the tiny lens for? Or is that a big watch?
It does a bit, but it was actually a 100" Algebra sailplane converted with a .40 up front and a taildragger undercarriage. The Lomo had a low-ish minimum shutter speed (1/250 IIRC), so I took pictures on the glide to avoid vibration. Got some very good results with it.That looks like a Chris Foss Wot4.
I've done a few paid jobs in the past but just a hobby really. I've always been interested in photography and flying models so I tend to have all the stuff anyway! You need a CAA licence and special insurance now to do any kind of paid work so you'd need to do a fair bit per year to make it worthwhile. Might consider it if I ever took early retirement.I love your RC photos, just a hobby or in the business?
Reminds me of the Flying Bedstead. As difficult to fly?
Mine do use commercial flight control systems, so are pretty easy to fly (self-levelling and with GPS etc.).Reminds me of the Flying Bedstead. As difficult to fly?
I like the latest fly by wire, self correcting systems and what I'd call virtual tethers.
Did you see Philip Bloom's Ghost Town?
