My name is Gert Jan Hoogeveen.
I just joined RC Groups because I really like the forums and blogs, and I decided to introduce myself.
I live in Holland.
I'm an A-level student and I'm 15 years old.
I started flying when I was 12.
I came across a video on youtube, seeing someone fly a RC plane.
I was amazed, how a person, was able to control a plane, he built himself.
I wanted to buy a balsa building kit, but my Dad told me it was better to start with a cheap plane, so it wouldn't be a very big loss if I crashed it.
I got the plane, put it together, charged the battery, and took off.
Surprisingly, I was able to make a left-hand circuit, and land the plane, without damaging it on the first go!.
I flew about 3 weeks with this cheap 3 Channel plane, and totally got it under control.
I bought an brushless motor with ESC, and build it in my little 3 channel plane.
It was much more fun.
Then, in 2010, I bought the Sonic 185 to get into 4 channel flying.
It went very well.
I decided to build the Medicine Man 60 inch glider.
It was really fun to fly, so I bought an Great Planes Spirit and fly with that.
And that's pretty much where I am right now.
I fly other planes, but I don't own them.
I recently started making youtube video's because I want to share my experiences with other people, get people into the wonderfull hobby, and help people out.
I decided to join RC Groups, to keep a blog.
I hope you guys are going to like it, but I have to go now.
The plane's are calling

Have you heard of Flying Giants? Very similar to RCG, but for only planes!(this is not advertisement)
I have an account on both, and like them equally!

Well, I do a level called VWO, which we call in Holland Voorbereidend Wetenschappelijk Onderwijs.
It roughly translates to Preparing Scientific Education, I learned in English class you can call it A-level.
So, VWO is the highest level in Holland.
Wow, you work in a RC factory?
That's so cool!
What is the factory called?
Yes, I am interested in RC planes, I love flying them.
I am (still) amazed how you can build something, and fly it with your own hands.
It's quite possible we ehave the same interests.
I would love to hear from you again.
