2nd Annual Ohio Combat Event - June 10, 2012 - Urbana, Ohio

The Mad River Flying Association is hosting it's second annual Ohio Combat event on Sunday June 10, 2012.

This event is geared toward electric push prop style foam wings and will include full contact combat, limbo, streamers, and maybe even some bowling. Many of the wings will be from Crash Test Hobby and will be between 30 inch to 60 inch wingspan. All foam wings are welcome. The main event is scheduled to start at 12:00 P.M. with registration and open flying beginning at 10:00 A.M. Food will be available throughout the day for purchase and there will be a nominal registration fee of $10.00.

Our field is located on city owned property. AMA membership is REQUIRED for all pilots to meet the city's requirements in regards to our use of the field.

Here is a preview of the limbo set up we will be using for the Combat Event. This video includes only two pilots making passes under the limbo pole. Now just imagine the chaos with possibly 25 pilots aiming for the 3 ft x 15 ft windows...

Don't get confused with the idea that the other pilots are your competition. It is the Limbo Pole that is your true enemy.
