Vin already sent me the link! This is a sexy plane, but I really want something I can put that DLE-50 in. Now the 1/3 Cub they have is SWEET, but I don't have enough years left to put it together!

Ok, little above and beyond there. Cool in it's own way but I can't say this really looks very fun to fly. I prefer ability to do at least some non-realistic (to full scale) aerobatics.

This cub is cooler though (although much more expensive too):

Keep one kit to build. Ship the rest here. I'll store them for you, & I'll send you one every 4 months.

of course you may not get a few back due to "shipping damage"

Not likely - Glo likes Tom & The Observer (sounds like a folk duo). She wouldn't let me go through his stuff. Not that I want to touch his junk or anything...

Well this one flies pretty much just like it's full size counterpart. It will do wingovers, slips and other basics. Loops would probably be possible but he lost his 1/2 scale Geebee to a loop and will not risk this one to that fate. That's what he uses the 1/3 scale stuff for.

While browsing (always a bad idea) I found the Align Trekker at Rons Heliproz for, ummm, $300 below. I figured that I might as well put it on the card now, because prices only go up. The only place I found it cheaper was Hong Kong, and by the time you add in $100 for shipping, it is at Ron's price. Plus, I trust Ron with my credit card information. I plan to do FPV with this heli. Eagle Tree OSD and the works. Maybe have it ready by SEFF. . .

open question: what is a good age for learning RC?

I'm going to be assisting Chris Anderson (the diydrones guy) at the local mini-maker fair this weekend. I'll be demonstrating a quad and the diydrones autopilot, and I'll have a table with a couple of planes, etc, for people to look at.

These things always draw a lot of families, and I'm pretty sure I'll have some parents asking about how their kids could learn more about RC, etc. My first answer is of course "You should take it up, and then teach them!" but I would like to get some opinions on age-appropriateness for RC.

All input appreciated!

It varies for each kid. My oldest has been interested but has not shown the focus till about 8 while my second is only 6 but doing just as well as his older brother.

If they understand Left and Right you can start them on a buddy box easy. But how much they will learn depends on how interested they are and how long they can keep their focus. Having a simulator really helps get the basic orientation down plus they find it more fun as they can work a little on really flying but also have some fun with all the goofy planes and fantastical crashes they can make.

I really love it when a parent and child get into it together. Or at the very least when the parents show an interest in the hobby and support the kids. Those are the ones that tend to stick around past a few intro flights.
