How many engineers does it take to fly an RC plane?

Last Tuesday the HubSpot dev team got together to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.  Besides the usual entertainment, we had a new toy: a cool RC plane bought as a gift by our very own Tom C, a fellow HubSpottah.

So naturally, after a few beers and some good Mexican food, we went outside to try to fly this puppy.  Hilarity ensues, not to mention some epic failures 😉
