    Re: Anyone into RC planes? check this out

    My son was/is into them, he built one and learned to fly it by him self, by landing it in the wheat fields in the spring, he was about 10 when he learned. it was a lot of fun.
    He used the lawn tractor and a trailer and would go fly, bring it back in glue it up with 5 min epoxy, and heat shrink covering, and be back out in less than an hour.

    he still flys some. I down loaded it so he could see it, thanks,

        Be careful! My brother flew RC planes for many yers, eventually building 1/4 scale ones. Then he learned to fly full sized airplanes and has three now! So be warned: RC is a gateway drug!

          Just watching these r/c planes, helicopters, etc. is addictive. I spent a couple hours last night on Youtube! Expensive and involved hobby at this level. Sure looks like a lot of fun. Thanks

            Must admit... that's pretty cool.

            I bet that plane costs as much as my car

                There's something very heartwarming about seeing a lawnmower fly! Great song too.

                  The flying lawnmower really put a smile on my face. I also like the song.

                  It is funny watching my daughter jump around to Eurodance on our coffee table.

                      Can you imagine coming out from a bar after one too many and seeing that flying lawnmower coming at you

                        Can't see it from here at work, but if the flying lawnmower is the one I think it is, it is my wife's uncle. He's built some pretty widely photographed ones, including flying saucers, Snoopy and the Red Baron, and more. I remember looking though several photo albums of his at a Thanksgiving get together.
