Our Club has ribbon cutting combat several times a year and I usually fly a foam board F-22 but they just don't last long enough (batt. time is about 4min. give or take). So I had a wing and tail set that I got for free at this years swap meet, My first thought was to use a arrow shaft for a fuse, but I ended up finding a plastic baseball bat from the local DT, and BINGO the Combat Baseball Bat is born. It runs a 2.2 lipo on board that gives me tons of speed and like 25min. of flight time. It has great gliding capability that allows me to "Hang out" above the action and let the other pilots go after each other first so they burn their batts. up and a bunch of them get KO, then I come down and go to town on whoever's left. It only has elevator and rudder, but it fly's great Loops on a dime, and with the rudder turned way up it is a flying machine. I flew it yesterday and it Won. I think it's a keeper.

I know this is not a plane, but it sure "Fly's"
The only problem is hauling planes to the field.

I got my big bird in the air. After a long wait on the racks I pulled her down and ordered the ignition box and installed it, filled her up with fresh fuel and BINGO here we go.
I put seven flights on the books, and all I can say is WOW! I love flying this plane. it is so light in the air it almost fly's like a fomie, but much more locked in.
What a great way to end the season.

I was invited to fly my F-22 for the CAP program yesterday. They are adding an R/C program for the cadets, and they wanted a easy build. What better plane than the F-22. Now they will be ready for "combat"
