Trying to figure out this BLOG entry stuff.
After an 8 year hiatus, I'll be returning to the R/C hobby. Started flying .40 size powered planes in '87 with the help of Jim Prouty. Introduced to slope soaring by Jim sometime in the mid-90s, and got hooked on Zagi slope combat with the likes of Lee Van Tassle (Vantasstic) on Okinawa, Japan in the late 90's.
I'm returning to Texas in August 2012 and I'm eager to get back into F3K DLG and make my first attempts at F3J/TD. I'll be starting from scratch since I sold all my old (and I mean "old") radio gear. Researching 2.4ghz radios and trying to decide between JR and Spektrum.
Formerly a member of HOTSS in San Antonio (2002-2004), I'll be looking to joint the Soaring League of North Texas (SLNT) who has a field less than 30 minutes from where I plan to live (Rockwall, TX).
Retired USAF. Many years spent flying on Okinawa, Japan.
