    Radian RF on plane?

    Anybody have any experience with this? Or installing it in an Ody or MDX?

    TIA

    Re: Radian RF on plane?

    I've never tried, I I think that it would be nearly impossible to install RFing on a plane. There would be no way to unbuckle the seatbelt IF you could get it buckled. I think that a belt extender would be too long to get tight.

    I have done FFing installs and it's really easy with a few tricks. Much easier than a Britax FFing.

    I would use it FFing on a plane for a child over 20 lb 1 yr, but then use it RFing in the vehicle if that might work for you.

    I keep wanting to try it RFing on a plane just to know for sure, but I haven't been able to convince myself to carry the boot on and mess with it "just for fun." LOL. I suppose I could take it into DH's airport and try it on a small plane since some have the same seatbelts, but I just haven't been motivated!
