YONG,

nice pics, I've always wanted to get a macro lens as my passion are really close-up objects, but my budget is limited nowadays Sad

Great model MazeGen.
The Gasparin motors are truly the best of the best.
Is that covered in Japanese tissue? And doped?
I have built many free flight rubber powered ships
but never c02 because of the cost to get motor.
My record flight for rubber power outdoor is 2 minutes 15 seconds.
It was a 16 inch legal eagle and took all summer to tune it.
Nice to see the sport is still alive after 50+ years. Very Happy

In fact, I took the two close-up photos using this entry-level DC: Canon PowerShot A2100 IS. Check it out! Wink

Yes, it is something like that, thin and very light paper. Doped about four times since it is outdoor.

I have buit few rubber powered models as well! One so experimental that couldn't even flew Smile and two maquettes 1:20. Can't remember the name of the first one, the second was a Hurricane that looked good but never flew well, I was 14 and had too small experience with such maquettes.

I attended first two years of international maquettes (1:20) competition, rubber/CO2 powered, here in Brno at Medlanky airport. I can't remember the name of the competition though Sad The first year was 1993 or 1994, if I'm not wrong. It was great and pretty big event, which lasted for five years at least. May be you heard about it. I have some pictures, let me know if you are interested, I can scan them and upload them somewhere Smile

EDIT: the name is OPENSCALE and it is still alive! Here are few pictures from 2006:

EDIT2: great pictures from OPENSCALE 2008

Legal eagle? How does it look like? Got pictures? Smile

Sorry, i dont have any pictures.
I had built 4 of them that summer.
They are so lightweight that after about 3 months they warp into oblivion.
(If i remember right, they weighed in at 4.5 grams wet)
You might say that i had 'built in tons of lightness' Cool

That's one cool camera if it can make so good shots Very Happy
But I've got a DSLR (Pentax K200) with stock lens which isn't very good for macro (I'm talking about macro-level like bugs and small things like that). I got it because I was lucky to get it at a cheap discount before the economic crisis. There are many overpriced DSLR cameras out there (or underfeatured like the Nikon D40), but this one I really recommend, if you can find it somewhere cheap or receive it as a gift. Wink

Here is the definitive web site for comparing, side by side, the images from two cameras.

On the left half, you enter, for first camera, Canon Power Shot A2000 IS. The A2100 is not yet available, apparently.
On the right half, one enters the Pentax K200D

To compare the two, in a rigorous fashion, scroll down midway on both sides, to the icon labeled "Multi".

This complex image is unexcelled, in my opinion, for the task of comparing two cameras.

Click on Multi, on both sides, TWICE--the first time on "Multi", the second time on "here", in order to observe the unaltered, unredacted image.

If you do this, it won't take much of your time to observe the unacceptable spherical aberration in the Canon.

Continue scrolling down and to the right on both images, and you will observe the strong Moire patterns, at level 10, on BOTH cameras.

Here's a camera with somewhat better optics, one among many:
Panasonic Lumix DMC-L10. Price is a tad more, by a factor of ten, than what I can devote to this interesting hobby.

Yeah but with what lens? The stock one?

BTW That DMC-L10 camera is really expensive, I think it kinda falls into semi-professional range lol Wink

Thanks for the link, tom. Smile

Yeah, it's a new model. In fact, I just bought mine about two weeks ago. Wink

Yeah. I can't afford any professional DCs like that. Sad Wink

For any aspiring people looking for a camera here, you can try dpreview, best site in my opinion with reviews/details about camera specs and all that -- especially useful if you have some light physics knowledge.
