Happy My Boys First Wingover

Post  Yabby Thu Jul 28, 2022 4:46 am

Ive attached some pics of my lads first wingover. he is actually 28, but I call him my boy still as he has a severe intellectual dissability from a massive brain injury at birth that didnt need to be. He has an IQ of only 60 so will never live fully independantly, but has done and continues to do amazing things with his life and the rubbish cards he was dealt.! sunny cheers when Im in the city now and then we go fly CL half-A planes together and drive our RC Cox powered air cars with streamers on them so we can have air car combats. lol! Or when he comes up where I am we do the same but also go out fishing in the boat. Yay.

Recently whilst out flying I said to him, you are going great at just flying nice and level and keeping it level, try doing some ups and downs as well and then maybe you can build up your skills to do a wingover one day. Two flights latter without telling me or asking how to do a wingover, he had a go! cheers sunny the pictures tell the story. the apple doesnt fall far from the tree. No idea how to do it, but just went for it lol! and just like his old man, stacked it. lol! lol!

at least he gave it a go. Bit of super glue and the plane will be good as new for the next adventure. Airplane cheers sunny Clapping

Likewise Eric! cheers sometimes the simple things are the funny and happy things cheers sunny Glad to hear you also get to fly with your lad sometimes! Flying CL Nitro Engines might be 'old school' but its still good fun if you take it as just being a good fun time. Airplane cheers

Nothinng like home grown vegies Eric! With plenty of pesticide added to get that authentic taste. lol! Thumbs Up Seems Like almost everyone in the states and Canada on the forum live in the countryside (outback) away from the citys and towns. you all seem to be able to fly in your back and front yards. cheers Airplane sunny

Father/Son times Yabby - Special.  I'm happy that you share them in spite of the bad luck.  A little glue and he's back in the air all the better for the experience.

Nice circle Eric.  Looks like someone got in there with a mower and went round and round.  

Crop art.  Flying over the planes States to Denver I used to see them.

This one may be a little too good, but you never know.

Thanks guys , it was nice to be able to go out back and fly if i needed anything just go get it LOL When I first started on it I used the tractor Farmall 140 to cut the ground with a spiked drag and then round and round (kind of like fling ) till it was the way i wanted ,, the next year the grass grew back then I had to mow it Doh! Now as i said needs cleaning up maybe this fall I stil mow it or bush hog if left to long .
