I'm not sure what the best way to teach Controlline is, thought I'd share a video of what I came up with (below).  The little guy did awesome. Proud of him.  Actually 3 generations in the video, we got grampa, dad, and the little guy.

Sorry it's not a Cox engine, we will work up to one.  I went with an old wasp .061 with rc carb so I could limit rpm. Runing 15% nitro. It's basically a manwing trainer with my own touches.

Whatever you are doing, you are doing good. Looked like a good flight there. Also, you picked a great plane for learning/training on!

Looked great! and nice plane! I like the Manwin trainer for just pure fun flying myself. Yep round and round, few wingovers, loops, upside down, crash and go again!. Good time to start your son, the more different things they do as youngsters the more variation in brain development and cognition by being challenged by all sorts of very different things, planes flying in three dee space, control lines, noise, going round and round, having to listen a bit to what to do, and all three generations there, so great support and family. Way to Go Thumbs Up Next up, surfing. Lol. started my boy surfing at five never looked back. I swam out and pushed the board with him on it, picked the right wave and pushed the board so he could catch the wave as he wasnt strong enough yet to paddle hard enough. 12 years old he was out the back in the line up at Waits on a day barrelling at 8 foot. All this stuff is great for their development, doing different out there things like CL plane flying is definately one. In 20 years you might be thinking I wonder if that day out there is why he has done engineering. Lol. even if he doesnt continue the hobby, plants little seeds in the brain. And when he still wants to go visit his grandparents when he is old enough that its supposedly uncool, it might well be from the involvement doing stuff together.

I love seeing young kids doing stuff with generations all helping and laughing. Old Bugger lol! Very Happy cheers sunny

If he can handle that combat wing with an .061 Norvel the Cox engine will probably seem slow to him.

Glad you guys had fun!

Thanks everyone. It was a great afternoon. His little brother was chomping at the bit too lol, he can't walk yet but wants in.

Try to expose them to as much of everything we can. I don't think of myself as a stickler for TV or games, but do limit it and us it as a tool so we can cook or what ever. Try not to let it suck too much time. Their interests bounce all over the place. Lately it's been Lego, driveway chalk and growing plants lately. Working from home has been great for playing street hockey or what not during my break periods.

That's really cool about the surfing bakergw. Going to try and get them in some sports once the covid vaccines do their thing.

I bought grampa a wilesco steam engine to tinker with, he's pretty excited to show it off to the boys when there's an opportunity.
