They are playing, but they suck... and so do the Jags (who they are playing). Packing up now, bringing the combat wing. And the camera.

Yep. Definitely qualifies. Congrats!

Great day of PopWing combat today! Can't wait to see Then's video.

The first video really isn't remarkable but the end one is pretty hilarious. And yes, the camera came off with the first hit. A few of us walked by the camera and the really funny part is that one of Mike's sons almost stepped on it. I promise I won't take forever putting it together. I still have to do the other videos from early in the year but it's a lot of editing which takes time.

Thanks guys, I had fun making it. I try not to make them too long as I know there's only but so much bobbing and weaving a person can watch.

Brandon, glad you got Green Stink (you should paint that on the bottom) back in the air! Don't forget everyone, I have a full Popwing kit at the house. The idea is that if you need parts (winglet, ESC, etc.), just make a donation to me and take what you need. I could always just sell the kit if someone wanted the whole thing, and just buy another one once they go on sale.

Popwing Combat Today

Out of the two sessions today I did not get any remarkable footage (I bet Mike Then, did).

However,

I did manage to capture a pretty close call in the second session - obviously before Mike Then was taken out by Joey.

That is an awesome shot! I didn't really get any decent video, aside from the plane plummeting straight down after being taken out by Joey. He unfortunately hit me from the bottom so I didn't get the actual collision on camera. But the video of the plummet from about 30 feet is pretty good. I will post that clip.

So who is flying today? I'm thinking everyone's Popwings need one more ass kicking before the New Year.
