Allow me to introduce myself!

My name is Craig. A 50 something year old kid who has found his second childhood with the childs first love, RC planes. Actually as a kid it was control line because only the elite could afford RC. In my 20's I finally made it to the elite status and got my first high wing trainer. Upon mastering it and now ready to move to a low winger my wife suggested I retire from the hobby. You married guys know about these suggestions!
Here I am now, she is not, and my new wife thinks this is just the greatest thing. At least she has for the past 5 years!
I hope to be an asset to the forums with some build logs as stick building is my greatest joy in the hobby, flying is second, and along the way help some folks out.
I am active in a local charity that has great hopes of having a youth center soon and I hope to be able to use RC as a tool in this venture.
So there's a brief intro, Thanks for your time and have a blessed day.

Craig

Dude.
Kick it hard! Awesome perspective and I like that you scratch-build too. This place is always stop one for my RC habit, I hope it's just as useful to you.

Can't wait to see some build log action. Keep up the smiles.

oh yes... Welcome.

Craig I started the same way. Control line .049 cox planes that I always thought would be so cool if you could do aerobatics with. Larger RC always seemed out of reach to me because of the costs etc. The low cost electric foamies are what got me into RC again as a middle ager. I also have refound my love of balsa building. Built lots of guillows kits as a kid but since I've been in RC I have built an electrifly cub kit and am getting ready to order an aerodrome WWI warbird kit. Still on the first wife though!

Regards,
Alan
