Just finished a brand new F-22 for the slaughter. The Trojan O Love (foam, not rubber) is ready too.

I need to replace the spar in my Combat wing before the Swarm. Can't wait. Should be a great event!

Hey, so what time we starting this thing and do we have a schedule figured out or is it just all out carnage? I know last time everyone complained about all the rules (watch your own plane is the only one that comes to mind but I'm sure Jon talked about others).

Show up early, smash planes until they are all broken, go home.

That pretty much covers it doesn't it?

I was contacted by A-Company, the toilet company. Should I schedule this again?

Oh, and rules... The scar on my face suggest we have rules... and follow them.

Same rules as always guys.

0. Come prepared to have gobs of fun. Goes without saying.

1. Fly in FRONT of the flight line, not behind.

2. Watch your own plane at all times. If someone gets hit off to the left or right, don't look away if you're around other planes, cuz you'll lose sight of your plane or start watching someone else'sand crash. Use self control here people!

3. If you hit another plane (or in the case of the Yanks, if you get HIT by a Reb) and can't regain control, cut the throttle BEFORE you hit the ground. That way, if you hit something or somebody on the ground, you don't cut anybody like Charles. If you lose sight of your plane altogether, CUT THROTTLE!

4. If we say "all up" during a contest, that doesn't mean throttle up and head for the limbo poles again, that means climb to altitude so people can recover their planes. I can't count the number of times last time when we yelled "all up" that 3 guys powered up and tried going through the limbo poles one last time, just as guys were running onto the field.

5. If you bring kids, they need a supervisor. Children wandering aimlessly around the field (and on the field) is a no-no. The thought of somebody's young child getting hurt keeps me up at night.

6. If your plane goes down somewhere out on the field during a contest (i.e. limbo), and you have to walk a ways to retrieve it, don't make everybody on the flight-line wait while you take a leisurely stroll out and back. Run. Run as fast as your squat little legs can take you, then get back behind the flight-line so people can fly.

7. Talk nice to people, make friends, be courteous, eat, drink, and be merry because soon you're gonna get smacked down by a Reb named "Todd".

8. Don't cry when your rebel planes continually get smacked down by a Yank wing! :-) You should be used to it by now.

9. Ignore any and every rule posted by a yank. They are clearly out of touch with reality.

10. Be careful on the drive to utah county, the rebel driving style is a little different then the yankees. 45 mph in the passing lane doesn't go over well with the yankees

I have a dozen F22's or so cut out now. I may have to cut more before the swarm.

For anyone thinking about an F22, they use the same setup as the Assassin. Red motor, 2 mg servos, 25amp esc, and 1300(ish) battery. Come prepared with stuff and I'll be happy to help get them RTF.

I'll take the two I mentioned yesterday

But, I will only have enough electrics to fly one of them next Saturday.
