My son is 14 and has been flying since he was about 7. Flies dualies and Revs. Not so much anymore though as his interests have begun to broaden........ :kid_smartass:

I'm 16 years old. I've been flying for 3 years, and started competing last year. At Camas Indoor, I got 1st place in three of the competitions (DQd in the other <_< ) and got 2nd in hot tricks.

As far as I am concerned, I think it is just great that the next generation is stepping onto the crease. The more the merrier.

And that some of them are flying rings round us grumpy old gits (do you have GOGs in America too) is even better!

Daniel Hoath (The Flying Squad) here with his Mum. I'm not sure how old the photo is but I believe Daniel is now seven and he's quite the maestro with his Rev II.
