Eagle Rock Combat Squad

A convenient place for local flyers in Idaho Falls to get together for discussions about everything related to contact combat, formation or other flights. Our group started with CrashTestHobbies.Com's Assasin wing. Some homemade wings have been added to the squad. basically any rear prop aircraft can participate. Just a heads up, we are not a flying club, nor are we sanctioned by the AMA. We are just a group of flyers that enjoy the excitement of the chase.

The squad is not limited to just combat flyers. Any other fixed wing or rotary aircraft are welcome.

We are looking forward to scheduling a Combat war sometime in the spring. It would be fun to send a local squad to the SWARM in Orem,UT in April. Local activities would include several combat and limbo sessions, along with open flying for non combat aircraft. Pylon racing is in the agenda to be added if enough interest is shown.

This saturday I am wanting to chase these planes from the car if the weather is ok. So let me know if you guys want to go. I am thinking lincoln towards the lake would be a good place with little to no traffic.

Ok here is a picture of the plane that started it all here in Idaho Falls. My Dad made this wing for me and that is really what started it all. After flying the heck out of it. I recovered it and sold it to a buddy at work and that is what got everyone interested. the next picture is of the widowmaker that i am flying now (another one that my dad gave me). I have taken the tape off and am in the process of making another design.

I am now in the process of building a tricopter. My goal is to strap on some FPV (first person view) equipment and try and get some really cool footage of the group and our flights here in Idaho Falls.

There hasn't been much activity as of lately and we need to start flying as a group and try and get more involved in this exciting and addictive hobby.
