Just Me..


My name is Kevin.. Feel free to use that. I was in the Hobby starting in 1990. I trained with a PT40 that I built. I had a 40 sized non-ring non-ball bearing engine (can't remember the make) and a 4 channel Futaba radio. I built around 12 planes over the 90's some for a good friend of mine. You can see in the photos a 4-40 Bipe, a 40 Ugly Stik I believe had a 40 sized Fox engine, a F-15 I built for a friend, and a 60 sized Kaos powered by a FOX Eagle IV 74.

Unfortunately I had to leave the Hobby in 1999 and I sold all my RC items. Always thought I would get back into it one of these days. Well I finally did in 2016. I built another PT40 converted to electric. I just finished a Big Stik 60 powered by an OS 91FS SII w/pump. I just got the OS started a few weeks ago and it started right up and I am in the process of breaking it in.. I had brain surgery in March 2017 that slowed me down a bit but am doing just fine now...

Over the 2 plus years I have been back I have spent a lot of time here on this website and have gotten much help on many issues that have changed over the years. I have also purchased quite a bit of items and 99.99% has been very good..

I bought the Big Stik here, a 40 sized Stik, I have purchased a Top Flight P51 and F4U Gold, 2 Kaos 60s, 2 Kaos 40s, (yeah I love the Kaos), a Sig Kougar, a Great Planes F-15 and I believe maybe one or 2 more kits. I have also purchased about 20 engines, about 1/2 NIB!!

This is a bit dated, but I am glad to be back in the Hobby!!

The photos in the top row were from the 90s. I got out of the hobby in 1999 and sold everything... Wish I still had them.. I do have a kit for the F-15 in my Queue and I am working on a Kaos 60 kit right now...

So pretty much starting from where I left off..
