Wingbuster Fall Championship


OCTOBER 5, 2013- HALIFAX, MA -five contestants were on hand for this one. The weather was partly cloudy and seasonably warm with a very light breeze. It was a great day for Formula GX combat.

In round one action Neil Simpson, Glenn Simpson and Chris Sarnowski all posted good round one scores. In round two Neil stayed hot posting a 725 point two cut win while Joe Fustolo emerged as a contender with 620 point win. In round three Neil and Chris flew to a one cut apiece draw. Next, Joe got past Glenn with a one cut win. In the first match of round four Joe finished a very productive day flying Brian to a one cut apiece draw. In the next match Glenn got an airtime win over Chris. In the final match Neil faced off against Brian. Brian got a cut early in a match that ended as a draw when the ground came up on Brian a little later in the match. The final order of finish was Neil, Joe and Glenn.

Thank You to the Wingbuster Model Airplane Club for allowing us to use their fine facility. As always, thank you to everyone who shared in the judging including Joey Fustolo’s son Joe (Joe’s grandson). This third generation control line pilot is already demonstrating an aptitude to follow in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps.
