One days Work at flying Combat

Combat guys learn that Mid-Airs are a accepted part of the sport!
Some days they happen alot others not at all. Overall people will go through 2-4 models during a summer of flying Combat.

Most guys build a fleet of combat planes from tough Coro normally min of two at a time during the winter months. Coro is very cheap/tough and don't feel bad when they go down.

The guys in Ottawa are not into scale combat at all due to the extra time required in building them. The Ottawa boys all fly Open-B wich limits the engine size .28 I fly a really great and easy/fast building plane called the DRACO. The design is found on the SPAD to the Bone site I can build a DRACO in about 6-8hours.

Arfs are a greatway to get into this but you like Ken said midairs do happen and you have to have this in mind I started out with the Pica arfs Corsair's and Mustang B's Just got too expensive so converted over to corro Most times you can retrive your plane with no damage at all this realy helps in the frustration factor department Combat is not for every one but it is the most exciting aspect of our sport that I've found in 20 pluss years of flying and in my oppinion eveyone owes it to themselves to try it at least once.
Green side is definitely not up
