Story time with “Sarge” #2

The typical definition of a stick fight:
Stick fighting is a generic term for martial arts which use simple long slender, blunt, hand-held, generally wooden ‘sticks’ for fighting such as a staff, cane, walking stick, baton or similar weapon.

The RC pilot’s definition of stick fight:
Flying Slow Stick airplanes (aka ‘Sticks’) with steamers attached in aerial combat where the objective is to successfully cut off your adversary’s streamer. Once a plane’s streamer has been cut, that pilot is out of the game and lands his plane. The last plane flying without a cut streamer wins the fight.

The Story:
The photos below show that its easy to lose more than just a steamer in the heat of battle. My blue Slow Stick met Danny’s red Slow Stick in a resounding “CRUNCH!!!” with everyone watching letting out a collective “OOOOHHH!!!”

As proven in the photos, Danny officially ‘won’ the battle with me, but we both lost the war to Randy who was flying the third plane in the first photo. Fortunately, the planes can be rebuilt quite affordably, which is why we use them in the first place.

Thanks to Patrick, our club photographer extroidanaire, we now have photographic documentation of our epic STICK FIGHT!!!!!
