    NORDPAC at OMAS 2013 vid, more of a combined arms record than a strictly RC armor documentary,

    Did those airplanes drop bombs? There was even a boat carrying a tank.

    NORDPAC at Albany Air & Arts vid,

    GPS: actually, pots containing pyrotechnics were set up beside the airfield and were remotely triggered when the aircraft flew over. As to the landing craft, it was built by one of our members who is also a highly skilled RC boat enthusiast and this one as well as others he's done are capable of carrying RC tanks.

    Lots of cool scenery and props. It must take you guys a while to setup for one of your exhibitions. Was that a fountain? The burning house wasn't smoking this time.

    It takes anywhere from 1-2 hours to set up a battlefield depending on the space we're allotted, and just as long to take it down but it's all meant to create a scale realisitic battle space. That is indeed a fountain that does not run but can contain water. The smoke generator was unavailable for the Albany event.
