    My daughter's Video - Tower Trainer

    My ten year old daughter Katrina handled the camera very well for this afternoon of flying.

    RE: My daughter's Video - Tower Trainer

    I'm impressed!!!! Not only does she do good camera work, at 10 years old she's already this good! Obviously, dad's spent some time tutoring.

    Now, time to trade places. She gets to fly next time.

    Great team effort Jim. When does the daughter fly the plane, and you use the camera? Liked the trainer.

    Cheers!!!

    Probably next year, but I think this would put her little brother Brent's nose out of joint. He really wants to fly. He got a Z-Power (Firebird) for Christmas from Santa . But I have a hand glider they might be able to start off flying with.

    Too bad we didn't live closer. My daughter could use a flying buddy her own age!!!!

    Looks like fun!

    RE: My daughter's Video - Tower Trainer

    Saw in the other thread that your daughter's plane was finished on a landing. Too bad. I hope she is taking it well. I took Brent out today to let him try a Hobbyzone Commander II. He overcorrected a right turn and spun it into the ground. I have to replace the tail. He felt so bad. He's only 6 years old. I had launched the plane while he was at the controls. Next time I'll launch it and get it to abetter height for him.
