I began building & flying rc models as a teenager back in 1987. All were scratch built models due to lack of funds at the time.

I then drifted away from the hobby in the late 90's due to University/work/marriage/kids. All my planes & equipment were stored in the loft (attic for those on the other side of the pond) and forgotten about.

I rediscovered my interest for all things flying in 2013 (after my 13 year old daughter happened across all my old models and showed an interest). I then purchased an Apprentice S 15e to teach my daughter to fly. This was my first foray into electric flight. My daughter has ASD and consequently struggles with some tasks, but the SAFE system on the apprentice enabled her to take control and enjoy this great hobby. (I can no longer recommend Horizon product though due to their awful customer service).

I now equip all new planes with the eagletree guardian system, which allows my daughter to fly any plane. The guardian is a fantastic bit of kit that I can thoroughly recommend to anyone.
