Our little boy is 4 in August and will sit in front of Reflex XTR running a Demo, twiddling the sticks on my TX, so there is defiantly interest there.

My question is, if or rather when, I set him up on the training settings what do you suggest I put under his control to start with i.e. Just Elevator or Aileron or full cyclic?

I know I can just try it, but others have done the same thing and just want some feedback from there experiences?

As allways thanks in advance

My 9 month old boy sits in my lap and controls the cyclic while I control the collective and rudder.

My 2 year old daughter does the same thing. She does some pretty awesome crack rolls. It's funny, she just thrashes the sticks around, and sometimes she actually does something that looks cool.

My 20 month old boy flies a air hog in the house...its known as his "helicoky"

Flies it...crashes it...resets it and does it all over again.

Its not so funny when he tries to grab daddies 14mz

Hi All,

You guys are killing me. My six year old boy couldn't care less about the sim or the hobby. When I picked the hobby up last year, I was really looking forward to flying with him, like I did with my dad when I was a kid.

C'est la vie. (I'm saving a lot of money though )

Keep 'em flying.

My 5 year old loves the heli's but I think he will be more into model rockets because he instantly throttles all the way up.......Up Up UP and away the bird goes on the sim....
