About 20 or so years ago I bought my son an RC car. It only took a couple days to find carpet racing every Sunday afternoon at the Rixford firehall. I was the mechanic and Matt was the driver. The kid was good.... At 8 years old he won his class championship. He won damn near every race he ever entered. For the first few weeks after every race somebody would come over and want to look the car over...... See if I had hopped up the motor. Nope ! Same motor that came with the car.....
Anyway, he has 3 kids now and no time for fun, I guess. I keep trying, but getting him to bring the family over for dinner is the best I can do. So, I started flying airplanes by my self. I actually found out that a local club STARS Olean/Cuba Ny were flying every Sunday at the Cuba school gym. I went one Sunday and watched and chatted... Took an Ember 2 back the next weekend and now I'm hooked..... I now have an Alpha 9 trainer to learn on as soon as the snow goes... Haven't even flown this one yet and bought Green/Maxford Curtiss Jenny 50" ARF because it was just so damned cool looking....... Just like it was 1917 again....
Getting old and starting a new adventure with airplanes
