Had a great Sunday out at Breezy Hill in Chester, Illinois. The winds stayed pretty reasonable, and we kept the control line circle buzzing for most of the afternoon with four pilots and six or seven planes...though there was a definite lull following some delivered pizzas.

Billy showed up with several classics, including a 1960's vintage Guillow's 'Basic Trainer', powered by a rear intake McCoy .19...a Sterling 'Flying Fool' Biplane, powered by a Fox .35...and a Sig 'Chipmunk' with a Fox .40 in it's nose. He also brought along a beautiful rubber-powered free flight model that used up most of the field, but landed safely in the parking lot.

Unfortunately, his Flying Fool suffered the loss of it's top wing, followed by a general disassembly in mid-air, with it's parts raining down on the far side of the circle! The separated top wing looked to receive the least damage of the whole airframe. He says he'll rebuild it, and the Flying Fool will fly again!

Leo had his Top Flite 'Flite Streak' with a McCoy Redhead .35 and a sheet-wing Jr. Ringmaster.

I had my swap-meet-purchase K&B-powered Sig 'Zlin' and my faithful old Fox .35-powered 'Super Ringmaster'. Leo and I pulled some 'friendly combat' with his Streak and my Ringmaster, managing to both get some cuts on the streamers Leo provided. Didn't get photos of this little episode, but will next time.

Brian has caught the Control Line Bug, and will be flying his own Ringmaster in the Fly-a-Thon in October. He was putting some laps on Leo's sheet-wing Ringmaster in the meantime.

Several other smaller planes were tucked away in the shadows, needing lighter winds to fly.

A fun, LONG day up on the hill with a lot of circle-turning with these great control line pilots!

Kim, the full bodied Combat Streak is not a common one. I pulled mine out and blew the dust of it this weekend. They fly extremely well and are quite fast. Great looking planes and I hope Billy can get the Fool repaired.

Thanks guys! Yeah, the McCoy on Leo's Streak was hauling it at pretty good clip!

Hoping Billy will replace the original engine in his Flying Fool with something a bit more toned-down. It was making laps as fast as the Streak!
