I've been in this hobby since 1971 and My Dad has been with me every step of the way. Started out U-controls, my first was a "Ringmaster" with a o-49 1/2a, that thing was flown so much I am still dizzy from it today....Lol. Learned to fly R/C on my Dads "Falcon56" silk and dope with an "Enya"35 on it and using an EK system.....the red one. Still have a crick in my neck because he would have me 5 mistakes high ! The first plane I built was a "Skylark" also by Carl Goldberg using "Monokote" in yellow with a K&B 40. Had two flights on it until some guy at the flying site "shot me down" when he turned his radio on "we were both on channel 42". That plane went in a hard left turn at full throttle ! The "guy" felt so bad that he gave me one of the airplanes he had in the back of his car !
