In order to capture these shots with a 100-400 or 70-200 with RC planes means you had to be significantly closer to them such that I'd imagine the rate of speed they can travel in and out of your DOF is substantially faster than true to scale aircraft at farther distances I'd imagine.

Truly a testament to both skill of the photog and AF performance of the body/lenses

Thank you!

Yes, they are pretty close. Maybe about 10-15 meters. When they travel at full speed, they are very hard to capture. I get a lot of half airplanes
