Northern newbie


I've been flying electric for many years and have now infected my brother with this bug. Unfortunately, I live in Virginia and he lives about 60 miles north of Minneapolis (Braham, MN).

Anyone near there available to help him into the air? (I'd be happy to return the favor if you have the need in northern Virginia).

Thanks.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Years ago, he flew some of my planes on a buddy box and did pretty well. But since he lives too far away to stretch the cable that far, I suggested that he should start over with a Multiplex Easy Star (probably the RTF version, though the equipment included in the package is entry-level stuff).

If he decides to do this, he'd need someone to pre-flight the plane and help him into the air for the first few flights. After that, I think he'd be fine.

Thanks again.

Well from his location it puts him probably around 125 miles or so from me. I've lived in MN all my 33 yrs. and am not familiar with his town. Get him on the groups here and we'll see what we can do.

I was talking to the wife and she was figuring he's around the Zimmerman area. So it really wouldn't be hard to connect with him.Get him on here and I'll see if I can hook up with him some how.
