COMBAT COMBAT COMBAT

Our first combat event for 2017 was held on Wednesday May 3rd.  Fun was had by all four participants, Dave Jamrog, Dave Ver Hoef, Lucas Russcher and John Russcher.

Round One: Dave VH was the only one to successfully fly the entire round.  Lucas launched his airplane and once airborne realized the his streamer was still rolled up and attached to the underside of his airplane. He quickly landed to dislodge the streamer and broke his propeller. Dave Jamrog had a clean launch but got his airplane a little too far away. Dave lost orientation and his airplane when down in the field.  My airplane never left my hand. My ESC wouldn’t arm and it took the entire round to figure out the the esc was plugged into the wrong channel on the receiver.

Round Two: Everybody got in the air, WOOT!  We had a great round of combat with Dave VerHoef and John getting cuts.  After the 5 minutes elapsed we all landed safely.

Round Three: We all launched on time again and another 5 minutes of chasing streamers ensued.  More cuts by Dave VerHoef and John again with Dave cutting John’s entire streamer off with only seconds left.

It was a successful night of combat even though it took a little more time to get started that what I had planned.
