Enjoying this hobby with my son

As I get the time I will dig back some 10 yrs. It will be great to relive this. I will post it briefly until I arrive at present time.

Definately do it.... I started going to the flying field with my dad when I was 3. Most weekends growing up were spent there. I have learned so much from this hobby and met some really great people over the years.

I took a partial break from the hobby for a few years and got back in big time about 2 years ago.

Great memories for you and your sons. I have mine with my dad, and we still fly together... of course I live in NC and he is in PA, but we still fly when we visit.

I have reached the point where I like to help people get started in the hobby almost as much as flying myself.

Enjoy your time....

My Dad started taking me to the field when I was 18 months old. I started flying RC at 7. I am 34 now and have a 7 year old son. He has a little electric trainer that we fly when he wants to but he is not bitten yet. Maybe someday.
