Hood River Hobbies

Our oldest son, Sam, is a member of a local remote control flying club, Columbia Gorge Aeromodelers.  Here are some prior blogs (CGA1, CGA2, CGA3) about Columbia Gorge Aeromodelers.  Sam went out to fly earlier this afternoon, but had mechanical problems with the plane - a small screw for the wing attachment went missing.  Can't fly without the wing.

Fortunately, Hood River Hobbies is close by.  John Frick runs Hood River Hobbies and Sam has gotten to know John well as he pursues his remote control flying hobby.  Hood River Hobbies is located at 110 Fourth Street in the downtown Hood River shopping district.  Hood River Hobbies has remote control airplanes as well as helicopters, plus all the parts to keep them running.  Part of the remote control flying experience is fixing your aircraft after it crashes. Sam has gotten quite a few parts to fix his planes at Hood River Hobbies.

HR HobbyHood River Hobbies also has paintball supplies, darts, models ships and cars as well as tools to work on your hobby of choice. And you can purchase ready to fly remote control airplanes and helicopters.  As Sam says "awesome".

John and Hood River Hobbies also generously extend a 10% discount to Columbia Gorge Aeromodelers.  Stop by and browse around Hood River Hobbies.

Mel & Gretchen: I think it's great that your son Sam is out doing something that's a hobby, and at the same time, he learns to 'fix' things as they break. Wonderful!

Hi Ellen,

Sam seems to be a natural at flying.  He earned his solo remote control pilot license after his second lesson with his Columbia Gorge Aeromodeler instructor. The veteran club members told him he would crash - the first time he did so he just picked up the pieces, then asked the other club members how he should fix it.

Thanks for stopping by to comment, take care,

Mel
