I second that!

Yes Mike I'm sure he will love it. My son used to come down and watch me crash which probably put him off....... trudging back with a handful of broken Wing Dragon ! But now he can see that it isn't so bad to learn he loves it, he'll be after my Gemini pretty soon I bet !

Our dog chases our planes all the time that they are in the air, I've got him trained well ! We can't get out of the house without him especially when we are carrying our models.

It was another great afternoon for flying here. My son, dog and I took our EZ*/Gemini out for some fun. This was my sons 4th flight and I decided that he was competent enough now for me to fly with him, so we had both birds up in the sky at once ! Eventually his BEC kicked in and he managed to glide the EZ* star down safely while I was still in the air. I am going to have to buy him another LiPo now that the bug has bitten him

Here's some pics from today.

Hey Pablo, nice field you got there. Pretty dog too. I'm glad he got her down safe, especially with you still in the air. By the way, what setup do you have in your Gemini?
