Default My son just got the bug!

I took my 6-year-old son to the field a few weeks ago, and since that day, he wants to come with me every single time and we spend the weekdays discussing what planes to bring to our next outing. I could now have asked for a better father son bonding activity!

He's practicing in the simulator and making great progress. Hopefully I can get him up on a buddy box soon!

6 year olds get bored quick. Get him on the box NOW.

I have 4 kids, 2 learned (past solo) one lasted until his 2nd crash. Make sure you teach him it is TOTALLY OK to crash. My son saw me fly and just assumed you didn't crash... LOL

It is a great joy to have the kiddo's with you....

The looks are definitely from his mom. You've seen pictures of me, haven't you? Nothing good can possibly come from my looks!

Anyway, what's a good, durable, slow, stable and highly visible trainer these days? I liked the Dynam HawkSky a lot, but mine is now wing-clipped and converted to an over-powered monster. Maybe I should just get another HawkSky...

The HawkSky will be a great Trainer for your son paint one of the wing tips on the bottom red so he can see it easier

hello Pontus,i consider you and i to be friends so i won't beat around the bush here. your very blessed my friend and your getting a huge opportunity to share many hr's of fun time between just you and your son...with that said ,i would highly suggest buying this plane to help give your young pilot incentive to learn quickly......this i am sure your wife will agree is way better than a life of booze,drugs and wild women. [don't use these as arguments to buy this bird].

i look forward to one day flying together again and seeing your boys new wings......,and remember,the bigger the trainer ...the easier it is to fly. stu

126" AJ Slick - Blue1 Review(s)Your Price: $1,999.99

narrow is the place to land...wide is the space to crash....choose the narrow way!

A 126" Slick? Yeah, that should keep him away from the booze and loose women!

But blessed I am! He's a great kid. Can't wait to get him in the air. I think I'll just go ahead and order a HawkSky. It a plane I know well and like a lot. And it's dirt cheap (compared to the 126" Slick).

BTW... If I won the lottery, a 126" Slick and a vehicle to transport it with would probably be the first thing I would buy. That's how messed up in my head I am!

Swede you lucky dog having your boy take a shine to the hobby! Many fun times ahead for both of you and great memories down the road to look back upon.

I tried with my youngest first time on the sticks with the super cub he did really good. I think even better than my first flight with the cub. Asked him to go again and I got a nah it wasn't that great. Too bad judging from his first flight he seemed to have a natural instinct to fly.

Take him to the candy land of RC events SEFF next you both will say it's better than Disney.
