hello guys, my name is steve. ive been in the hobby for almost 32 years now and its my passion. ive owned a hobby shop where I built planes for customers for a few years. unfortunately I had to move back to my home town due to illness in the family, and get a real job. ha ha ha .....
I still flew and continued to build. here recently like most others I got into fpv flight and found my true passion.
I started building pro grade fpv planes a few months ago and have built quite a few. I thought I would share some pics and details of one of my latest builds. the legendary RITEWING ZEPHYR II.
