He hits me, right wing to right wing. I bounced off the the ground applying full power and continued to fly. Then we both decide to come in and check for damage, and hit on final into the wind.... watch at the end as his Titan hits the ground in front of my already grounded Reaper.!




Head-on-Hit ground, then continue (0 min 44 sec)

That looked like more than just a touch and go with the ground. It looked like a touch and roll and then go!

Thanks JPN... it is nice there... blacktop for those with wheels, and lots of room. One person has made it his life mission to get us out of there, but, most the close homeowners along the side there don't mind. There used to be a middle school there. Midget soccer gets the nod during some weeknights.

touch and go with the ground
Ok Ryan.... I can buy that... but translated to combat wing usage, it was a BOUNCE and go... it really did hit right-tip, nose--bounce semi cartwheel .... then I had enough momentum on the prop to give it forward motion. It was no touch and go for sure. The prop never touched the ground.!

P

actually, if you look, you can see a direct shadow right before impact, then after the bounce, you are right Ryan, it looks like it might have cartwheeled 360 because you can see the shadow again!

Again, to point out the obvious... the Titan STAYED airborne after the collision and appeared to be last in the air on the second hit as well!

In combat threre are no loosers!! I used to live in Utah and fly with the UFO (Lee and the guys) We often had over a dozen aircraft airborn and in combat at at time. I never heard so much unbridled outrageous laughter!!

We weren't totally unruled. We had one rule: You can not blame anyone for anything that happens to your plane! Other than that most people thought the rule was " Have fun".

Great to hear from you Jim. How is your club doing with their Reapers?
