My 38 year old son is still into the RC airplane thing. He took me with him once to watch him fly his new craft. First flight with new craft, telephone pole. So I made this to commemorate the event... Used my sweet little 40 for the base. O.K., it was scrap from a different project...

That's cool, and believe me hitting a pole with a R/C plane is not an easy job. Great looking project.

I watched some pros with their RC planes and was very impressed until they crashed into tall grass instead of the runway. The guy that crashed said it happens all the time. Crash repair cost over 50 bucks. I decided to pursue a different hobby.
Nice commemorative, a good idea and well done.

I gave it to him yesterday. He loves it! Funny thing is: He's got 30 some hours of lessons in a real one and hopes to get his license before too long. He does much better when he is IN
the plane.
