RC and ME
Well.. decided I needed to add a Blog entry but wasn't sure what to put.
Figured some kind of summary of what aspects of this great hobby that have grabbed me, throw in a few pics and that will be it.. I've titles it RC and ME.
In the beginning:
Well I got into RC in my homeland Australia, at around age 15, starting off with an Aires 2 channel glider, don't remember the manufacturer, but it was a great starting point for me, had a hi-start and some willing friend to run and tow me up. I soon got into other interests, bridging into RC car, electric, gas and electric boats. Then move away from RC for more teenage like activities.. Skateboarding, surfing, snowboarding.. ect
So, 15+ years, a career, wife and 2 daughters later, I've now been back into RC for about 4 years, in which it has been very addictive. With the advancements of lipoly, brushless motors, an addictive compolsive personallity, RCG, the internet and some equally enthusiastic friends I have found myself with a very obssesive RC habit. In a good way.. !!
I have found myself trying to cover every discipline there in with RC aircrafts. This is very dangerious, as we all know how many different areas there are. Such as Gliders, pylon, slope, 3D, micro indoor, jets, wings. While recently cleaning my RC workshop, I established that I have about 20 flight ready planes, and a pretty good supply of "stuff", all electrics of coarse.
The following is some of my planes and their stories that may accompany them.
