Just a quick note to say that once again, Tufflight models truly have to be seen in order to appreciate just how "Tuff" they are. Our field has a man made bayou running through it, and occasionally, a model will crash into this waterway. I was flying my Panther in one of our many combat rounds today when a flat bat SPAD and I had a spectacular mid-air. His model was completely destroyed, with my engine mount doing its job by breaking off after the impact with his wing. The Panther then flopped into the bayou. Expecting the worse, we walked over to the bayou, and there was the Panther, floating upright. While still floating, I tried the radio, and it worked! We recovered the Panther, I reattached the engine, and in fifteen minutes, was flying the next combat round. Tufflight Panthers are not only tuff, they’re waterproof!!! Happy Holidays!
So I took my newly assembled Predator X to the field
and after 2 warm up flights the club smart aleck said "I've got some
ribbons, tie one on!". So he and his spad, my step-son and his Battle
Floyd and me and my Pred. X took off. The spad didn't touch me and the
Floyd is in many pieces now. I can't even tell (on the Pred) where I hit
him with my plane but he's toast. (I ordered him a new one) So a major
test on my third flight! I think it's going to be a long season for my
competitors. I only hope they don't get they're Pred's until after I
clinch the season. This plane fly's very easy and is quite intimidating
to see in the sky. By the way, I held the gas tank to launch it, what
do you guys hold on to? Careful now.
Here's the pics I promised of my Predator X and my Terminator. You may note the battery
location on both of them. I'm using O.S. 46 FX on both of them and
needed the weight at the rear to balance them. It seems to work good.
J.R. 537 servos and electronics complete the package. I'll be hiding the
Terminator wires in the wing before combat season starts. I think the
combat community of Mendocino county in northern California is in for a
