Well started flying 3 or more yrs ago,made the move from nitro trucks.My first starter plane was a HobbyZone Mini-Super Cub,then I moved up to the Super Cub,had lots of fun with that trainer!!!
I was hooked and then made the move over to a PZ Corsair,I was lovin' the flying more and more,It didnt take long before I started to put more power into it.
I have always been a speed nut,and soon found the best place to fulfill it was in the air.As time went on I bought a few more war birds,GreatPlanes P-47 Thunderbolt (first balsa) and had a pz mustang around that was used on 4s and a eflite 480,PZ Extra on 4s also.

It was about a year and a half in and I found a Stryker......I was hooked!!My first one had some mild carbon and a HET 2w25,it was fun to say the least!!The Stryker hooks were in deep!!It didnt take long before I started out building my own,with much of my knowledge coming from other RCG Stryker nuts.

This is my latest creation,its built with .300'' carbon arrow shafts,all the shafts a 1 continuios length in the direction they run,it is very riged with no flex in it,i also installed wood trailing edge and 1/4 Du-bro hinges on 1.5'' balsa elevons.
