are they differentiating between slope and powered EPP combat? slope combat is a safe as can be. powered may be slightly less safe due to props and higher weights, but if done properly, it can be safer than the drive you have to make to get to the field

apparently, its more about the intentional ramming/mid air of an r/c aircraft. which would include slope/electric combat with foam planes.

The issue is FULL CONTACT COMBAT not just epp or zagi. Please see the thread titled "Banning Zagi Combat"

Has anyone see an R/C combat meet without at least one midair?
Heck, you actually have a better chance of hitting the streamer when you aim for the plane. Just my experience

This is just another step down the PC road. Itís not PC to support anything that involves intentionally crashing an aircraft of any kind into anything on purpose. Probably just a knee jerk reaction to some loud mouthed Politician. I have yet to see or hear of anyone being injured during a foam/zaggi combat that was run safely.
