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!

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