EPP Foamy Combat
Group

EPP planes are indestructive, so called that it is a bit misleading. But it got to be true that EPP planes are very durable on crash and midair impact. Many of these planes are made to the shape of flying wings which are easy to fly, highly maneuverable. If many of these planes are combating in a crowded airspace, this would provide lot of fun to the pilots and is amazing to watch by the onlookers. Is is impressive to see a column of combat planes flying in formation or chasing each other in air. EPP combat was formed with an aim to promote the excitement of air combat and to organize regular contests. Please see the Slope Combat Rules. We enjoy very much the excitement bring about from this kind of powerless combat flying. Please join us now and share this wonderful excitement!


Hong Kong Slope Combat League 

The Hong Kong league for slope combat was started from year 2009 for providing opportunities for local pilots to constantly enjoy the excitement of slope combat under a formal competition arrangement. A combat will be conducted in the first Sunday of each alternate month starting from February. Please see the detailed League Rules and Contest Arrangements
