Radio Controlled Jet Plane

Our seven year old received a belated Christmas present from a family member. It was a radio controlled "jet" plane made by the Estes rocket people. It has an internal turbo fan engine rather than a propeller on the nose. Just battery operated, no burning fuel.

The box spelled out that it was for ages 14 to adult. Fourteen? Our son is seven. Well, we put it together and took it to the park. It was difficult to fly, but with hand-eye coordination that many seven year olds get from playing video games, we felt he could handle it. It will be just a matter of time before he masters the controls.
