Next Northwest CL event: Oregon Flying Fun No. 2 See Where the Action Is
Winter is building season, and Combat flier Russ Hester of Florence, Ore., has been busy. Here is his newly finished fleet of planes for AMA Fast Combat and 1/2-A Combat. The fast design is called the Shocker and the 1/2-A is called Lil' Shocker. All have internal line-tension flyaway shutoffs of Hester's own design. Information about 2019 contests is beginning to appear in Where the Action Is. Flying Lines photo.
