Default My new combat ship!

Watched an event at our club last year and thought it looked great, so I had one built by a pro, and did my part by applying some neon camo with my kids. Our electric fun fly is this weekend and I'm looking forward to my first entry into combat!

I'll report back and show what's left of it!

I've got a pair of matching Funbats with KF airfoils and I absolutely love them. I wish I could find someone to fight with. Have a great time!

I think the fight will go as follow....two hits.

Someone hitting me, then me hitting the ground!

Hmmmmm. I think a crashtesthobby.com Assassin would have a great time flying combat with that one......until the very first collision.

But if the combat bug bites and you want something more durable, the Assassin might be a good place to look.

Ha, that might be an option. One of the ships fighting that day was a huge bat shaped thing that was 3 times as big as everyone else. Of course that means he went slower and was a bigger target. I nailed him dead on, bounced off him like a little fly.

Here is some photos I took from the combat mayhem. I may have gotten a pic's of the big bat.

Ya your slacking for sure.
Fun event and great bunch of fellow flyers. Wish I had brought a plane to get in on the ribbon cutting fun.
