RE: Birthday present for 11 year old
Thanks foe the suggestion on the full size T-28 but I went with the UM T-28 for a couple of reasons.
He doesn't always like to go to the field because of the travel time and at 11, he still gets bored pretty quick
We live near several very large soccer fields so a park flyer made a lot of sense. It's a quick drive, fly for an hour, and right back home
Once he is comfortable with the plan he can then fly at the school's soccer field which is a 5 minute walk from home
Anyway, when he opened his birthday present, huge smile on his face. He wanted to fly that weekend but with a high of 10, we passed. This weekend it's looking like upper 40's so barring any wind, we'll take it out and see what happens.
