I have been interested in airplanes since my early childhood. I must have began building plastic model airplane kits when I was about 7 years old. I still remember buying my first RC Modeler magazine in 1973 when I was 10. I scratch built my first RC airplane in 1977. It was the Schoolyard Special from RCM plans.
I began building and flying RC airplanes in 1977 when I was 14 years old.
