Flyer's Name: Richard Holmes

The other contest was Drag Race. One on one with points for first motion, lower height, and later landing. I put my Flat Boy on a B6 up against Scott S’s Make It Fake It.

The Flat Boy was first off the pad,but I should’ve used an A motor. Not sure what motor Scott was using but mine actually got higher, and it landed first, so Scott won. The Flat Boy broke a fin on landing (maybe surprising this hadn’t happened sooner). Repairable.
