Butch builds better boomers! They held up great in todays wars -- better than my newest wing (motor got blown off in a great hard smackdown...)

The wind conditions were just right for what we're calling "Spinners," which is when your wingtip gets hit by someone else and your plane goes pinwheeling sideways as if somebody threw it like a frisbee. Very funny, and I saw at least five today (two of them inflicted on my plane).

Not really any more contact with ten planes than six, but it's way impressive just to see all those little buzzers in the air at the same time.

We also got to see Butch's newest NanoBoomer fly (with the 5-gram motor) and it really does! Extreme aerobatics, right on the edge all the time. I think that thing gave us more thrills than the combat!

Great day, great field, and some great folks to fly with.
