any combat flyin n the west ?
« on: September 04, 2011, 19:02:37 PM »
hi folks , havent been here n a bit , showed a friend of mine the joys of slope flying  . Having just flown powered , he was very impressd , that was grand until the inevitable happend ( had a mid air) before we knew it were tryin to knock eachother out of the sky (harder than it looks) but very entertaining ! But we were equipped with the wrong planes for the job in question (both ended up with a little bit of damage ) but both repairable . The question is , we are both fans of warbirds , so where would a fella pick up an epp pss warbird or a reasonably priced combat wing ?
Thanks in advance

Fred

Hi Luke,

Sorry, missed your post here.
You can find PSS for combat here : http://miniplumes.eleotech.fr/crbst_5.html

Contact is Luc Chavand.
We used to have the full range in the shop, but not anymore due to the lack of interrest over here :(
Cheap models, but fly very well (My P51 you can see on the forum comes from him  :D )

There are certainly others, but I don't really know  :?:
Education is important, but flying RC planes and gliders is importanter!

we dont use rules as such (as in the proper tournament)just one, no head-ons since its just the two of us , we just keep flying , knocking the crap out of eachother  :evil: and keeping score of how many knockdowns we have each when we finish flying  :D

Zagai's are the staple diet here in Cork. I would definately suggest them. J Perkins in the UK supply them. Otherwise the hobbyknig Ridge ryder (very cheap and not so durable)https://hobbyking.com/en_us/hobbykingtm-ridge-ryder-slope-wing-epo-913mm-pnf.html sometimes on sale for 25 euros with servos but oos at them moment


Spots or no Spots?
Tuff Choice.

Flyable slopes range from southerly all the way
