Summer Sizzler
F2D Combat

JUNE 30, 2013- HALIFAX, MA – The weather was very warm, mostly cloudy and humid. The Wingbuster club field , as usual, was manicured and very green. Five contestants were on hand for the second contest of the 2013 New England F2D season. At the end of two rounds one pilot had been sent home in this double elimination affair. Neil Simpson had won both of his matches while the other three pilots were sitting at one win and one loss. In round three Neil got past Greg Wornell with a one cut victory in a match where Greg lost significant airtime due to a faulty shut-off. In the same round Chris Sarnowski received his second loss
courtesy of Brian Stas. This left Chris and Greg tied for third. When a fly-off ended in a tie, they settled third place via a coin flip. The final was a match-up between Neil and Brian. Some good action early and then mid-air contact damaged both planes. It then became an airtime battle between two wounded birds with Neil accumulating more and taking home the contest win in the process.
