NEWS! T Bolt Wins

They didn't need no stinking ribbons! T Bolt was the target but he was the last plane flying. Video will be in my event article next week. Combat was drone in the rain. Good Job T Bolt!

I can't believe Tbolt won, and I even witnessed it with my own eyes. Even if i did have rain all over my glasses. I hope more of the videos came out. The video taken by Ben from the quad copter was awesome.

Here is the before and the after. Notice in the first shot on the left is "Team Get Tbolt" filled with confidence and on the right is the humble "Team Tbolt".

The second shot shows victory of Team Tbolt celebrating after a hard fought battle and Team Get Tbolt hangs their heads in shame.

There is already talk of revenge for next year.

Thanks Eli, Heather and Cathryn that was great fun. We will have to do this again next year.
Maybe a few more pilots will join in on the fun.

Victor, The video I had taken didn't turn out too bad. I'll get it posted when I get a chance. Tina got some great still shots.

Very sorry to have missed this year's event even after building a plane. Did you guys really fly in the rain? The Model N couldn't have taken the rain anyway (foamcore wings).

Ah well... she'll be waiting for ya next year, Victor!

Was it raining? I thought I was sweating due to all those planes out to get me.

Barrett, We all look forward to aerial combat with you.
