10 years experience. I fly everything from 20 inch flying wings up to 1/4 scale. Currently have 37 models that are airworthy. All are either foam or wood. I fly both electric and gas/glow. Also fly ducted fan jets. Have built from scratch, kit and of course arfs.
And of course, I have two nitroplanes models, an A-10 ducted fan jet and a .25 sized Gee Bee thats electric powered.
Use two radio systems, 72 mhz and 2.4 gig spectrum. Make all my own solder connections and charging adapters.

Thanx...

I've got 5 years of flying experience and I mostly fly sport planes and wings in the parkflyer size range. I'm capable of some 3D but not much; it's not something I particularly love so I don't have any 3D planes anymore to practice with. I can fly a plane and make it look good, though

Been flying for 4 years fly anywhere from sport planes to scale planes. Love to do airshow maneuvers and show off whatever plane I'm flying! (And I'm local)

My current fleet consists of
-Parkzone Trojan
-Global Hobbes Starlet (my favorite because it flys so scale)
-F35
-Multiplex Magister
-Eflite Taylorcraft
-Micro T28
-Eflite Grasshopper
-and soon to own one of your P51s

Hi Nitro,

I'm a little confused. Do you want experienced, or do you want 'awesome'?

There's a big difference...

Active R/C flyer since 1971. Professional modeler in the aerospace industry for the last 24 years. Currently fly a number of models from Nitroplanes, including a 64mm F-35, 64mm Tornado, Do-335 and several sailplanes.

Primarily fly sport scale models, but also fly indoor R/C, electric Formula 1, sailplanes, seaplanes and a few other things as well. In years past, I have flown R/C aerobatics competitvely and did some Quickie 500 racing.

I host an electric fly in in the DFW area each year and travel to 6-10 electric and other model events around AMA district 8.

Currently have about 50 flyable electric models, including a Top Flite giant scale B-25 converted to electric, a 1/5 scale Waco YMF electric, 1/5 scale Hangar 9 Pawnee, about 12 EDF models, several original design models, Eflite Bonanza, Eflite Stearman, Erc B-25, Eflite LR-1A Pogo, Hobby Lobby Su-34, Pilot 1 Champ, Waco YKS-6 and Stinson, most of the Horizon Parkzone ultra micros, and too many more to list individually.

Here is a link to a video of my first flight of my own design twin EDF Beriev Be-200

I have been flying for about a total of 3-4 months. I have flown (if thats what you want to call it) an Ember 2, a Lil Rascal hybrid, and will maiden my Slow Stick this weekend. I can definately crash them. If you are looking for someone with little to no experience for a trainer, I am your man. If you are looking for good, and experienced, I am NOT your man. Good luck in your search. Mark
