[Headline: Young pilot is part of the team]
Brian Hendricks (firstname.lastname@example.org), from Magnolia, Arkansas, was excited to share this photo of his son, Hobie, taken by Mimi Mason.
“Hobie Hendricks is my five-year-old son. He goes to a lot of fly-ins with me and everyone just loves him and treats him like he is theirs. I am a JR team pilot and we are getting him a team jersey like mine. He already has the hat!
“This picture was taken a few weeks ago [in] Texarkana, Texas, at the annual Texarkana RC Flying Club’s Big Bird/3D event. Hobie loves all of his flying buddies and thinks that Jason Danhakl, Rob Maxwell, Josh Price, etc. are all his uncles!
“Hobie has an RC flight simulator at home and gets to practice on it when his chores are done. He also has a new trainer, but hasn’t flown it yet.
“If you have a Facebook account, go look at and like Mimi’s photo page: Model Aviation Memories by Mimi.”
Mimi used a Canon 5D Mark II camera with an f-stop of f/5.6 and ISO of 400 at 1/125 second.[dingbat]
