This is my first blog entry - ever. Hope it doesn't turn into a manifesto as I do have the propensity to get on my soap box. I'll try to keep it interesting and something I would want my grand kids to see.
First thing I guess I should clarify is my avatar. I graduated from Texas Tech in 1980, again in 1991, and again in 2000!! Guess you could say that I'm as much Red Raider as a person can get. My wonderful wife and my oldest son also graduated from Tech. Enough about that.
I've been registered on RCGroups since 2006, but haven't been very active on the forums as rcuniverse has been my site of preference since it first went online. Actually, I haven't been active on very many forums as I feel like I have more to learn than to contribute. But I heard about 3DHS Bigfoot, and started reading through the thread. Since then, I've corresponded with several members, bought parts, bought a plane, got advice, and generally had a lot of fun. Which, IMHO, is the whole purpose of being in this sport to begin with. If you're not having fun, you need to go find something else to do.
I have been flying RC since the mid-80's. Decent builder, decent pilot, just an average Joe that loves the hobby.

My main interest is in medium size fixed wing aircraft. My favorite engine is the Syssa 30cc. The majority of my planes are built around that engine.
