That's a pretty funny picture of me looking at my 1/2A plane. I was acutally getting rather frustrated, my engine just wasn't running right. I hope to get that fixed, but I need to find some of the right kind of fuel tubing and get my tank sorted out, I think that was the cause.

Mid-Atlantic's should be a really interesting contest this year. I'm going to stick with my same A class planes I've been flying, but I might have a surprise ready "just in case". Not sure yet, but August is pretty far away, so lots of time there.

Spadhunter,
There is a Tennessee combat contest April 24th in Nashville. It is for SSC (.15s). Do you think you might make it? Go to www.rccombat.com and check out the contest calendar to get the particulars.

Spadkiller,
That is great news that you are going to the contest. I am going to one the weekend before in Cincinnati (Havoc over Hamilton) and the one in Nashville too.

I think we will have 6 Atlanta pilots at the Tennessee contest. I am bringing wet weather streamers in case of rain.

Hope to meet you there.

Streamers


I thought the RCCA Combat rules said that the CD is to provide all the streamers used in a sanctioned match?

If it is really wet we might not come or maybe just come and watch.

We are having a fly-in May 22nd for any type of R/C flying. MAYBE a combat flight or two in the afternoon if enough guys want to. Don't know. We have more details at www.wtrcf.org under 'Events.' Our actual announcement flyer should be completed and up in a couple of days.

Sure, that's the theory. But a lot of us die-hards travel with our own streamers for backup use in case the CD needs it.

The important thing is that everyone is using the same stuff. If Lou shows up with the forestry tape and gives it to the CD who then passes it out to everyone else, that's fine. But you won't see Lou or anyone else using one kind of streamer while everyone else uses a different streamer material.

This is the "combat squadron" of our club, near Milano (Italy).
Actually, my plane is not a combat but the red and blue trainer in the pic background...

Beautiful spit, even I doubt russian air force have ever used a Spit

Just a thing: in the pic, the tail seems a bit too little... How does it fly?
