I'm located in Leicester, and I'm the proprietor of Vortex Vacforms, manufacturer and supplier of vac-formed components for sport & scale RC model aircraft.
In an attempt to keep up with progress, and following advice from people who know about these things, I've registered here on Modelflying.co.uk and look forward to familiarising myself with this aspect of the hobby. I realise it may not be such a big thing for some of you, but please bare with me as I try to get a handle on it, as I'm still trying to sort out the Facebook account too - I can't believe they changed it when I was just getting it sussed!
If you don't know me, I used to fly powered models from own designs, to plan-built and kit models, and later moved into PSS with Ron Broughton and Nigel (Hawes). Great fun, with some great guys. No name checks as you all know who you are.
New additions to 'the clan' over the last few years have significantly reduced personal flying time, and most 'building' is done for other people's models, but a contra-rotating Apache is airworthy and always on hand...
Finally, although I've not had a stand at the shows for the last couple of years, I can confirm that I haven't emigrated, I didn't win the lottery (yet), and rumous of my demise have been greatly exagerated! LOL
