R/C summer camp starts tomorrow here at Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum!
Sold out for 2014. The kids will learn to fly and solo a Champ that they get to keep at the end of camp. We will also fly several other aircraft during the camp and buddy box some nitro trainers with the Evergreen Aero Club.
They were building better and with much more confidence today. After sim time they all buddy boxed again. I know all of them will solo tomorrow without a hitch.
We watched "James May's Toy Story" today at lunch. The one where he builds a toy glider that flies 22+ miles. Here is a link to it.
Day one of R/C camp. 12 kids all middle school age.
The kids made their Super Delta Darts, learned about the four forces of flight and a little aviation history.
The kids have sim time then stick time (buddy box) on the house Champ.
All the kids did a great job!
Tomorrow the T-28Ds and a few other planes. This is sooo cool. I don't know who is having more fun, me or the kids.
Ready for our R/C summer camp. Starting tomorrow the kids will get stick time on micro planes. Building tomorrow as well. Each camper is getting his or her own Champ that they will solo by Friday.
I think some of you will recognize the aircraft you sold to me here on the classifieds. I thank you and the kids will too. Without the deals I got here I could not have pulled this off on my budget.
The end result I hope are some kids interested in R/C flying as a hobby.
I'll keep you all posted through the week.

Gearing up for our R/C camp. Looks like a 90% Parkzone event. Each student receives their very own Champ that they will solo by Friday. Stick time on micro T-28, P-51 and P-40. Also stick time on a larger PZ T-28D and some nitro trainers courtesy of our friends in The Evergreen Aero Models Club.
Photos to follow.

Gearing up for our new R/C summer camp. Using mostly Parkzone planes this year. Each camper will get their very own RTF PZ Champ they get to keep.
Three day camp will begin with the kids building their Super Delta Darts and then some stick time on Ember 2's in the museum. Day two we fly the Champs and fly the Delta Darts. Day three the kids solo their Champ and get stick time (buddy box)on full size Parkzone T-28's.
Almost sold out. We might have to add a second class.
