I've started flying multirotors in the past few months and worked my way into FPV. Now that I work for www.getfpv.com it has really got me into quads. I'm really enjoying flying my QAV400, such a fun quad!

Check out my latest flight!

Just this past weekend I attended my first FPV meet and had a blast!
It was the Central Florida FPV Meet in Leesburg, FL. There must have been over 60 people there at one point, awesome turn out! Lots of support from vendors too, READYMADERC.com, GETFPV.com, UrbanDrones.com, uThere's Ruby and more all donated items or time to the event.

Met lots of people, learned a lot and just had a great time watching everyone fly and hanging out.

Check out all the details on my site, pictures and lots of videos!

It has gotten to the point where I have enough RC planes now that storage is becoming an issue. Too many times I've had a plane laying on the ground waiting to be stepped on or knocked over. I finally got motivated enough to build my own PVC pipe rc plane rack. There are lots of different ways to make these, so the biggest thing is to just make it work for you and whatever you're storing. I chose to make a wall hanging rack since I don't have a lot of floor place to hold a stand.

Check out more pictures and build details of the pvc plane rack here!

I've been documenting my first FPV plane build, the Skywalker, on my website.
I'm nearly complete and have hundreds of photos and pages of information now. Take a look, maybe you can get a few ideas! I'm going to FPV maiden the plane soon!

I've also created a page dedicated to the electronics side of the build that I'm updating.

Team Associated RC10T - Tearing it up! (2 min 29 sec)

Hello everyone! I've always had an interest in RC vehicles ever since I was very young, even saving up for 3 years as a 12 year old for my first RC-10t kit. RC planes was always a desire of mine, but just not affordable for me back then. Luckily it's much easier to start the hobby these days, plus being 15 years older with an income helps!

I thought I'd catch everyone up on where I started earlier last year and where I'm at now with some videos. So here goes!

Hobbyzone Champ

I started with the Hobbyzone Champ, like many others have, to get my feet wet into the RC plane world.

Airfield T-28 Trojan

After a few weeks of practicing with the Champ I felt ready to move up to a 4 channel plane, and I decided on the 800mm Airfield T-28 Trojan. It was a bit scary flying with ailerons at first, but I quickly got the hang of it, and I was hooked!
