RC Heli beats Language barrier...
So my dad calls this morning and asks if I'm flying today. I say sure be there in 30 minutes.

I get there and he pulls up with a little kid in the truck. He tells me his name and says his parents are staying with them for a couple of days, the boy is 5. Then he says he speaks no English, only french.

So I say hello and hold out my hand to shake his, he walks over and gives me a high five. Good enough for me.

I get out the mighty Trex600E and spool her up, do some maneuvers just having fun. Then I land.

He is all excited and pointing things out. I am doing what I can to show him how things work.

Downpours came and flying was out. Dad took off with the boy and as he pulled away I waved good buy, he waved back.

We didn't understand a single word each other said but sure as heck had a good time.
Just wanted to share the story.
Later,
Mike
