Default RE: Back when model airplanes were cool...

I'm too young for the video but I'm still an old fart these days (50 yrs old and counting). I too started with Cox 0.049 control line planes which I tended to smash into the ground. Got dizzy too quickly with all that spinning around - or at least that's my excuse.

Gotta love those old movies, with the marvellous background music! You can tell that for the people in these films the world was a wonderful place that was just going to keep on getting better and better thanks to human ingenuity. Nowadays we all are too cynical, and flying is about as sexy as riding a bus to most people.
