Good going, Sam.
Mike I like his form, his body leading the plane. Being the boss instead of just reacting. Maybe let him look at a copy of the Basic Flight routine and see if he's interested.
Great Dad too.
Rusty

Mike,

Looks like he was having fun out there. Great job on the giant wizard. Very cool.

Might want to put a thong around his wrist, would hate to see that thing get away from him if it pulls out of his hand.

My 7yr old son had my Ringmaster jerked from his hand, luckily he was flying low and it just pancaked.

Good stuff and thanks for the video.

Ron

Way to go Samuel Clapping

Tough little dude, a plane that size probably pulls pretty hard, judging from the way he leaned back. But he had a good control of his body and the plane, did this come to him naturally or have you practiced a lot before?

Nice of you to let him fly the big plane, with anything bigger he'd need the thong not only from his wrist to the handle but probably one from his waist to ground too lol!

Great stuff. Man, I got to get my planes flying and have my sons fly them too.

Sam started on an .049 platter when he was 4. When he was 5 he went to a .15 sized Flite Streak Trainer. He wanted to move up to the "big trainer" as he calls it. It was a slow progression over 3 seasons that got us to this point. I see all the posts about thongs and I understand where you guys are coming from but I am still taking off for him and a thong is prohibitive for passing the handle. Samuel understands very well not to let go, no matter what. This is how I learned and so will he. Once he can take off all by himself he will get a thong. Thanks for all the positive remarks, Mike
