Flashback: Starting a New Member

I happened to be browsing through the back pages of our website when I ran across a photo of someone special, in a special moment.  You see, it was my son in the photo.  It happened to be taken on Kids day back in 2014.  Bob Salmon was kindly giving introductory flights to the many kids that day.  It seemed like it was a hit back then.

But I was not there that day.  I wasn’t even a member yet.  But there was my son, plain as day taking his turn flying Bob’s plane.  Apparently he visited with a friend of his and their family after seeing the booth at the Adams County Fair.  They decided to check it out, seemed like fun right?  Well that started something for my son.

 

Fast forward a few years, my son and I decide to get into RC together.  I had previously been a member years ago, back in the early 90’s.  Soon my son was a member of the club, flying all on his own too.  Still does on occasion, even though he’s a teenager now.

Funny how things turn out, isn’t it?

 

More Shots from the Field….

Our new E-flite Cessna 150 Aerobat, 85″ span, 4-6S battery pack , so far we are getting four 6 minute flights on a 5000mAh battery leaving 30% !  It has SAFE AS3X gyro system in the receiver making it extremely stable.  Flaps make it super slow on landing.  And the light system makes it super realistic!

Here’s a video of Dylan landing at Dusk:
