Now your job is to set the needle so that the motor barely runs and the model limps into the air – fly as slow as possible for 6 laps

Also put lots of streamers on to create drag to slow you down and make it fly like a turkey! Probably the only time you want a really bad engine run!

Time to Pop some Balloons – they are small so it’s harder than you think!

The final results – 3 Frozen Turkeys find a new home (only to be eaten a few days!)


Both Jason and Fred had major damage to the aircraft

























After the Combat we had some damaged airplanes but everyone had a great time!

Other pictures of the food and the site – clear plastic and heaters kept us warm
