Over the years as an rc hobbyist, my interests have made large shifts throughout the last couple of years. I started getting into long range fpv in 2017 and then gradually moved into coding and electrical engineering. I also picked up amateur chemistry along the way, turning an insulted shed into somewhat of a laboratory. I've made and distilled nitric acid, synthesized copper(II) oxide for thermite, boiled bleach to obtain potassium chlorate and much more. I attribute much of my self dedicated learning style to this wonderful hobby as it has always pushed me to learn more, remove assumptions and ultimately grow a great amount over the years. My current interests are scratchbuilding efficient fpv planes much like Iforce2d does, and I am constantly challenged by it. I'm steadily moving into aerospace engineering as I am enjoying modeling planes in OpenVSP to calculate their performance. I also have a strong liking for the field of antenna science, as the concept of manipulating light to carry information is so cool. This has been greatly fueled by IBCrazy and his awesome tutorials. Anyway, thanks for looking and comment if you feel the same way about any facet of these concepts. I always enjoy meeting people in this community.

As of October 2017, my longest flight was 45 minutes and 8 miles away with the 787-8 volantex ranger. I'm sure it can go farther because I haven't landed less than 10.9v acorrding to my arkbird ap. I just recently bought the dominator v3s with a 1.3ghz receiver because even though I live close to my field it's not fun to bring my computer, tripod and plane out every time I fly. Anyways thanks for looking and happy flying!
