He was heading down and I am looking at him and offering great advice...."more power, pull up!" (Duh....Dad's are great) I saw him flare it and I am sure he gave it all the power the LVC would allow....and then it disappeared



it was way out there and the corn is well over 8 foot high.....when we found it somewhere out there by taking a few steps and wiggling the radio controls..... look what we found....a big piece of yellow corn



grabbed it....walked the heck back out of there... changed batts and flew it a few more times.....Awesome tough planes
tell me about it. Wedge jr can really make you pucker. never know which way he is going to turn

Yes....Wedge Jr. forgot...and when it was brought up that it was anyone else other than the pilot, we stepped aside for a chat......

i only brought up the "dual mode" only because I throw on a timer that goes off on my watch so he knows when there is two minutes left, not flight over

after the chat on who is the pilot all was good and fanciful flying resumed

I haven't fully stepped back since I stand as close to him as I do with others

I can tell you the wind blew him back while he was inverted and the plane went over our heads inverted and to the junk yard behind the field and at trees

my first reaction was "hey better gimme", but he just calmly went between the big trees, nosed it down (so it would climb) and brought it back into play
