Me and some guys ( sonicboomer/treecutter/ripdivot ) were trying out some combat this afternoon. What a blast! We had two Dogfighters a corostang and a mig out. We went for three rounds before a midair put and end to things. My dogfight T boned sonicboomers dogfighter and smashed it into three pieces. That was my first midair ever. It was quite spectacular.
I think we will try this again in the near future. We were discussing afterwards any guidelines we could use when we build more combat planes to make it more even and possibly more interesting. Any suggestions? I don't think we want to establish any hard rules. Just some guidelines to make things fun. Bye the way I am very impressed by the WW1 planes some of you guys built. Fantastic!

Cheers. George
I keep having the same mechanical problem. I've got a loose nut on the transmitter!

Hi George,

I think you have explained R/C Combat very well. It's a Blast!

I'm guessing you are running .25s (we love the O.S.FX.25)

Try taking turns 'Target Tugging' with a long string and long streamer.

The 'Tug' flys level laps and the other planes aim for the streamer.

After a while you'll get comfortable flying together and will end up flying together. Defending your streamers and going after a cut.(trying to cut and keep your streamer at the same time is very challenging.)

Midairs are always 'crapluck,' they just happen.

Keep the planes cheap/easy/similar performing. The SPAD Dogfighter is a good practical plane.

Be prepared for other pilots to join in the fun.

R/C Combat is very addictive.

If you have any questions just ask here on RCC. There are alot of better pilots than me. I have great fun trying to outfly them...

Take care,
Have fun,

Mid airs happen!

Tip #1

Get a metal Muskie type Fishing leader and attach it a engine bolt and the other on the fuse! - It will keep the engine from leaving the scene in a mid air! - Its very hard to find a engine in a big field - I know!

Check out and look at the DRACO design
this one is a keeper - it even glides LOL
