I believe my Grandma was gone before even the Phantom 1 was released, but I always envisioned a RC plane down la Rivière Rouge, flying from the Saint Boniface side. I can't wait till you start sharing your videos and stills of that beautiful corner of the world.
My humble suggestion:
- Read this forum starting in December last year on the Mini site, to best understand how awesome your Mini aircraft really is.
- Practice in an open field for a while before heading over water.
- The above will make this hobby really fun for you.
