That's probably my favorite part about flying at parks. I rarely get any bad comments, but often get good ones.
Before filming the video for my bush plane durability thing this year, a boy and his mom came over and talked to my dad and I because he thought the plane was really cool. He was about the age I was when I started flying, and we got to tell him about a bunch of resources and a good place with friendly people to go and fly if he ever got an airplane.
His mom seemed really on board with the whole thing and the kid looked like he loved planes (not just an airplane phase or anything).
I hope to see that kid around at the flying field someday.
Sorry for the thread jacking. I guess I should share a moment that fits the thread.
Before I filmed the durability challenge thing for last year, some dude got mad at me and said he would call the police if I continued to fly. The rules at that school (school was out and I was flying over the small, but clear part of the field) said that "model planes" (among many other things) were not allowed, but I once flew at a nearby school with the same rules in clear view of a cop, who didn't care. As a matter of fact, she said that we couldn't bring our dogs in, but didn't say anything about the plane. The rules are more of a guideline, and tbh nobody follows them. I have seen dogs, skateboarders, plane flyers, and model rockets there, and none of those things are "allowed". Still though, my dad and I left the school because we didn't think that bad publicity for the hobby was a good thing. We went to the school pretty much next door and finished the challenge lol.
