Well I got a very neat kit to build called the Air Boss from Sig. The laser cut parts are amazing and the quality is just outstanding. I put this all together yesterday in less then 2 hrs.

I got this one because my 7 year old daughter asked to buddy box with me and we don't have a trainer any more.

My first Dollar Tree Foam Board Plane, built from Flit Test Plans and instructions! It was a total blast and took about 1 day to get the basic air-frame finished. Then spent time adding details, sort of got carried away with details but was easy and fun.

Well I think I have just about given up on glow and converted to all electric now! I still love the glow planes for the sound and smell, but for my son and I it has become quicker to just grab our electric planes and fly.

He has been doing great on a Firebird Startos for several weeks now. The other pilots at our club field have noted several times how great his flying is. This is a great plane for a beginner and has become my recommendation to new people wanting to try RC flying.

I've been flying a Radian Pro since January, and have been loving the enjoyment of soaring. Nothing like sitting back in a chair watching a sailplane fly overhead! However I did note that my son was not into the glider thing so I thought I would get a second plane to fly with him. I ended up with the Parkzone Albatros, it is a very cool looking plane and is a lot of fun to fly with him in formation!

We are still flying micros, but the glow planes have been sitting for several months now.

Just having a ball getting back into the RC sport again. I've been back at flying for almost a year now with my son (7 years old) and we have been making a lot of progress. We have out old rebuilt 60" .40 glow trainer, a couple of cheap medium electric planes that haven't worked out great. We have a small fleet of co-ax blades and a couple of micro park fliers. Just a couple of fleet photos for the blog.
