Hello all, just wanted to give you a quick background about myself. I'm sixty years young now and a lifelong modeler. I have built everything that flies from indoor rubber power to full scale EAA planes. I've had a 35 year career in the UAV industry at AAI/ Textron systems working in the design and development lab for UAV's. I also had a 15 tenure at GPA hobbies which I purchased with two of my friends but due to my wife's declining health I sold my interest back to the widow of the former owner. Turbine jets and EDF planes are my main interest now but still build from scratch many sizes of models but have stopped flying glow power due to the costs of fuel locally and now use gas or electric power for my smaller planes.
I also have a group of friends that I travel with to swap meets and we have been liquidating the estates of friends so you might see some things up for sale in the fuel engine section and kits. We go to the Westminster Md., Lebanon Pa., and Hamburg Pa. Swap meets each year. Since the advent of the Internet our yearly trips to the WRAM and Toledo Shows have stopped as of four years ago.
