I am an RC aviation enthusiast that has enjoyed the hobby for over 25 years. I started out as a young kid enjoying the hobby with my dad. I started out on Guillows kits then moved into RC gliders. From there we got into glow powered planes and that’s where I stayed through high school. After college and once I settled into my career, I got more active into electric powered RC aircraft. I played with helicopters though I admit that is one area I just can’t keep a focus on. I am a member of the Southern Minnesota Model Aircraft Club outside Owatonna Minnesota where I enjoy flying all types of aircraft from micro electrics to giant scale warbirds.
A few years ago I decided to become a contest director for the AMA. With this, I helped run the Northern Alliance Military Fly In and then started WATTS over Owatonna. Both events are must-attend events in the Midwest and attract pilots from all over the country. I have since then also become an AMA leader member. I also wrote for Fly RC a popular magazine focusing on the hobby of model aviation.
I enjoy helping others as much as building or flying my own planes. I have been instructing a few people including my own boys. I hope to help others via this blog and just get some general information out there on what I’m doing or am interested at any given time. It will all be RC focused though so no worries for a political rant.
I look forward to interacting with people reading my blog so feel free to leave your comments or e-mail me using the form below
