Default SPAD Combat

Hi,

had the SPA3D out today and me and a mate decided to combat ours (I've a saito 56, he's a 46LA but lighter). Doing elevators harriers, walls all while trying to get a streamer, At one point, he was hovering 2-3m off the ground, I tried an elevator for the first time and "snuck in" at the right height, and would have got him, if he didn't blast open the throttle,

Combat with the SPA3D is nice and slow, but bl00dly good fun. 3D Combat we've christened it.

all while trying to get a streamer,
"Streamer? We don't need no stinking streamer" A bunch of us made PBF's and we just go for the plane. It makes combat a lot more personal. Besides the spectators love the carnage. Most of the time after a good collision we can put a little packing tape on the affected area, restart the engine and go again. Last week someone got into a servo and put me out for the rest of the day.

Muza,

Sounds like a blast! I'm going to have to rebuild my SPA3D and try that!

I have to warn you, though: SPAD combat is addictive!!![8D]

Let us know if the 3D combat catches on; you might just be onto something!

We've convived the local SPADders to build them and join in!

The streamers are there so we can keep using the plane

Try having one person do a harrier/hover into the wind, and another elevator down and slice up the tail instead of the streamer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
