Default RE: Disadvantaged kids??

If you go to my webpage you can see that I've been promoting this hobby for many years by teaching and helping fix up the poorer citizens with planes. That's how I got my name. I raid the trash cans and beg for bits and pieces. My basement if full of half wings and complete tail sections so fixing up a plane is not too difficult. Getting hold of engines and radios is the problem.
Unfortunately it doesn't always work out as hoped. Some kids resent having a plane made from odds and ends. They want a quarter scale P51 just like the big boys. Understandable I suppose, but I find it hard when that happens.
