I do think these videos are more suitable for an R/C forum than a GA one, though.
Given that they are posted under 'aviation photography' I don't see a problem, and the work is already well known elsewhere in the R/C world.
I think the variety and sophistication of the subject matter it extremely interesting, it may not 'add' to the experience of a typical GA flyer in terms of hands on flying experience but I would have thought simply seeing what is being flown as 'a model' these days and the benefits that todays technology has brought would be of interest to anyone interested in anything that flies.
Some of these 'models' are flying at 70% scale, I can only see that as being fascinating to anyone interested in any machine that flies. At 61 years of age and having worked in aviation for over 30 years now I've seen many things, I don't tire of seeing anything that relates to flying; maybe I'm just childish and naive.
