R/C with dogs, mk. II

#2

My dog Lilly is the reason I got into R/C in the first place. I was playing ball with her at the park and some guy started flying a small RTF trainer of some sort. Lilly stopped playing catch and started running after the plane. She chased that thing for 5 minutes before I was able to finally grab her. I apologized to the guy and he said it was funny as hell but he was afraid to land for fear of what she might do tot the plane.

After that I bought the small F4U you see in the video. After I got to the point that I could fly it without the gyro, I bought a 1.2M P51D. Now I'm building foamboard wings. All because my dog likes model Airplanes.

She doesn't hurt them either. if I land, or crash, she runs over to it and sits next to it with a big doggie smile on her face. If I pick it up and don't launch it again right away she starts barking and jumping up at me until I do. When she sees me grab any of my planes , she has the same reaction as when she sees me grab the leash. She starts running around and getting excited. If I leave with a plane and not with her, my wife says she mopes in her bed.

She goes berserk when I fly my micro quad in the house. She hates that thing and she will attack it like its an alien monster invading her home.

Better then a cat and a laser pointer.

That's dedication to a dog right there. Our chocolate lab will run in circles and bark, but that's about all he does. My brothers border collie is a different story. She will run after my planes as fast as she can, but the worst thing she does is cuts right in front of me every time I take off. Once in a while I'll actually have to abort a takeoff because the plane hits her. Somehow she never gets hurt though. She used to jump extremely high at my planes as I did passes, but a couple times she actually jumped up into the plane as it passed over her and it's kinda made her scared to do it anymore :p. Both dogs will whine and cry if I leave them in the garage while I fly. It's kinda cool to have 2 flying companions that don't judge your flying or building skills :ROFLMAO:.
