Theres nothing wrong with that. A straight color is very respectable for a first shell.

Shooting r/c's well can be quite difficult, even when they are still. I use my wife's DSLR and turn the aperture all the way down. I get about as close as I can and focus manually.

That's a nice blue. Don't care much for the sponsorship logos to be honest. The top pic looks best, but that's just my two cents.
