Awesome. I used to do control line back in the day and heard about dog fights but never saw one, until now.
Did the control line thing as a kid and even saw some dog fights but it wasn't until I was older and got back into RC planes, I got to do some dog fighting without the control line. We would attach a paper steamer to the back of one plane and another plane would chase you around the sky and try to cut your tail off. It is a LOT harder than it sounds.

@MissileMist This plane has to have throttle control or it might pull the pilot off his feet.
Ringmaster, didn't Stirling have that name and offer it on several different types of construction?
On these gas powered B-36's whether they are C/L or RC, it becomes an issue in keeping the engines cool on the ground as they lack the airflow over the engine head with the props being backwards on them. Getting all six running right and in sync before over heating is a relative concern. However, it can be done with consistent engines properly broken in. Regardless of the size though, a B-36 in the air is quite awesome. The sound is not to be forgotten.
