My son completes his first landing!

Not bad! :) Nosed over, but I'll attribute that to the grass reaching up and grabbing the plane. :) LOL

And I'm kidding, by the way. He's doing great so far; he should practice low passes so he can learn his line ups for the "runway", and he'll be nailing those landings solidly every single time! :)

Unfortunately, when I added the top wing to the old speedster to help with slow flight (Thanks for the inspiration Dr. Looping Louie!) it made it top heavy. Unless we land on a hard surface, it pretty much noses over due to the light weight and top heavy nature of it. But it flies great!

We just finished the 4 channel FT Explorer and maidened it today. I'll be flying it until my boys are ready to move up.

Huge thank you to Flitetest for making these moments possible!

@James Powell @mayan - I too am working with my son to get him flying (he is currently 5yrs old so may take a while) - I have a buddy box set up and a heap of planes to crash, now we just need some nice weather on a non-school day - Luckily he is keen and we will start with our DL(TT)G glider which is ready to go - fingers crossed!
I'm using a buddy box system too. Love using it to take over when needed and then give control back.
