I first flew RC models at the age of 10, which probably started my passion for flying. I've been lucky enough over a lifetime to compete in full size gliding, powered aerobatics and even tried my hand at helicopters, hang gliding and paragliding, but I've always maintained my interest in modelling - it provides many of the same challenges (and some new ones) in a more conveniently-sized and affordable format. I delight in the ingenuity and camaraderie it fosters amongst club members and never tire of watching the joy on the faces of those learning something new - and there's never a day where I don't learn something also!
