Club Fun-Fly / B&G Club Event

For Saturday, July 13th we had a flying session where we hosted the Fremont Boys & Girls Club at our field. The weather was great and the winds remained low throughout the morning. Pres. Ed Vincent had a busy session training several of the youngsters. After the first couple of training flights we switched from the club's trainer to my LT-40 which proved to be more docile and easier for the kids to fly.

Even the Dads get their turn, Toby at the controls.
Maybe he got bit by the R/C bug?

donation for the Fremont County Boys & Girls Club

Some of the youngsters had difficulty with over controlling the planes. It appears that the buddy box setup doesn't take full advantage of the computer radio's expo features. Maybe we can solve the problem before our next training session.

Anyway, a good time was had by all.
