Chandler has mastered the RC Super Cub. We picked up what the guy at the RC store told us is the next level of trainer "actually easier to fly than your Super Cub...." a T-28 with ailerons. Not wanting Chandler to have the guilt and defeat of burying the new plane in a smoking hole, I did the honors. Take off, left turn into a race track oval pattern, another left turn over head, beginning the turn for another oval, abrupt pitch up, take off and departure stall to the right, .....bye-bye. Cost to fly the T28 with our skill level computes to $259.00 a minute. Have I mentioned that I really dislike the RC hobby?
Of course when you return to the RC store the guy tells us, "what you really need is this 400 buck Spektrum controller, the potentiometers will make flying much easier" . I equate this whole experience with the carnival barker who tells you that you are so close to winning the big stuffed animal, five bucks more and you're a shoe in. Sheesh! We're going to fly 1:1 today, it's much cheaper!
