Wylee Kippenbrock, 7, right, of Cub Scout Pack 183, and Steve Hemmer, both of Jasper, flew Hemmer’s plane Wednesday at the property on County Road 350W that the Jasper RC Flyers Club uses. The boys got to use a remote control that was connected to Hemmer’s remote and he took control if a plane started getting into trouble. After about half an hour of flying, it started raining, putting an end to the outing.
