Hahaa! good story GDon, those little plastic planes could take a beating but not a squashing, I found your story easy to picture.

Found an old RC pic folks, I think this was my first trainer, back then you had to build your own from a kit and most trainers then were bloody awful things to be honest, flat bottomed, high dihedral RE throttle things that were meant to teach you all about the importance of rudder. I remember my next plane (pictured) it was a little sports thing with ailerons and soooo much easier to fly! My father went on and built a lot of really nice models and they all flew very well, I should say that we built them but ti's hard to remember there were always a few projects on the go. I was a fortunate kid for many years, my family were not at all wealthy but dad always found the time and some money to help me in the hobby, it was a good example he gave me.

Sorry the pics aren't gliders, but they are woodies.
