Talking First gremlin contest and first midair.

I finally got to a Gremlin contest that wasn't rained out or I forgot there was a combat meet. What a blast chasing each other around the sky trying to cut each others ribbon. I took the first spot landing for 1/3 point, and a second one. and won the last combat flight of the day. It's a lot harder than it looks.

That last ribbon cutting session was also my first midair collision we were both in close and missed each other a couple of times. Then it happened loud bang and mine came out of the sky he was able to get his down with a broken fuselage that was flapping, and one aileron ripped off. We were both laughing as this does happen time from time. so I got wet behind the ears with ribbon cutting and I got my first collision out of the way in one day.
Best part was when we found my Gremlin in 2 pieces I had his ribbon wrapped around my fuse so I won that round tough way to win, but a win's a win.
