I am off work for a couple weeks to spend some time with the family after the birth of my third child (its a boy) i have had my 8 year old daughter practicing on a sim for some time now and thought it was about time for the real thing. I had a little bit of free time so and wanted to build her a fun plane from some scrap parts i had laying around and an esc i got for free from anixs (Thanks anixs). everything went great for my first 2 test flights, except for it being a little over powered for her to fly at first. On my 3rd flight i was trying to slow it down as much as i could and it ended up stalling into a rock and bent the motor shaft. It was a fun little plane, i will have to see when i can get another spare motor to put in it. My daughter was so excited, still happy that she will get to decorate the plane, just not sure when it will fly again.

My daughter is the one recording the video
