The funny thing was that we weren't trying to combat.  In fact, before we took off, we explicity said "no combat".  We probably couldn't have hit this good if we had been trying!  LOL!

Good thing you didn't drop the camera, Ghost!  Then you'd have to break out your RC submarine!

This is an all Mercury CA build, just before its maiden.  The wings sweep based on throtle, all thanks to a Dx7 programming. At full throtle and the wings fully sweep back its a little twichy!, but it slows down so well that you can almost catch it mid air!

It all started for me back in 1969 with this tissue covered glider that my father and I built together. We later moved up to free flight glow power and then to R/C. These were some of the best times of my life. R/C had captured my heart at a young age and still does till this day. What a great hobby for young and old alike to share.

Take off is optional landing is not!
