Hi everyone, a student of Ashdale PS was playing with his remote control plane on the primary school oval two Sundays ago. He lost control of the plane on its maiden flight and it flew into a backyard on the far side of the oval, near the playground. It is a small RC blue and white plane. If you've found it, please contact us via Facebook Messenger and we'll pass on your details, thank you.
