I'm Jason, and I love winged things...
Seriously I love aviation, the concept, the actual flying, everything...
I'm not a 3d pilot, nor will I ever be. It does amaze me at how some guys and girls can defile Bernoulli's principles with sheer power and grace, but it's not for me.
I started flying about 20 years ago (give or take) with my dad, fell out of the hobby for a while, and then picked it back up again with electrics. I still have a few Nitro planes collecting dust in the garage, but I'd rather fly electrics any day. Call me a sell-out or a poo head or whatever, but the noise and the goo and the prep time is just less fun and more hassle than I think a hobby should entail.
Funny thing, but true story.. I like building way more than I like flying. In a time of ARC/ARF/RTF/BNF people just don't have time to build a plane from sticks I guess, but I love it.
Foamies have become a staple of mine though. They're easy to build, I can take creative license with them and still make them fly.
But all in all the building.. For me anyway, Man that's the BEST part!!!
