“(set a status)”
Hi my name is Stuart, I got into flying free flight gliders at age 12 (The Keil Kraft Caprice was a favorite), progressed onto RC gliders at age 14/15 and have owned the Flair Sunrise, Gentle Lady, A 2 metre Algebra glider, among others.
Used to fly up at
I mainly enjoyed flying radio controlled thermal soarers launched from a bungee up until I was introduced to electric flight in 2006/7. I got my Gentle Lady glider electrified courtesy of my friend Tom Wright. Since then I have built a Slingsby Skylark, Caprice (electrified) for nostalgia, a Hobbyzone super cub, a super Reiti, DG1000, 3.7 metre Bubble Dancer, A Hobbyking Canary, a 2.5 metre scale Nimbus 4, a para motor.
I am an electric convert now and can fly on more days than I used to and get lift higher up. I have also got into attaching video cameras to my model plane
I enjoy flying off Mam Tor in the Peak District! and have lots of video's on you tube.
I am also into the natural world, especially bird watching and all things to do with nature and photographing nature. Ollerton in Nottinghamshire has lots of wildlife and is a great place to study nature and to fly too!
