More about me:

Ash blonde "Sunday flyer" with delusions of grandeur!

Child of the mid 1950's nearly joined the RAF at 16 but chickened out when the sign on term for what I wanted to do was also 16 years!!!   Eventually joined the Army via RMA Sandhurst and spent a happy 7 years as a Rupert - yes I fell for the glamorous adverts showing water ski-ing in Hong Kong etc - Oh how we laughed when we were soaked to the skin in the endless rain of winder in Amagh!!!!!!!!

Started off on Airfix kits (didnt we all)

Went to Keilcraft free flight (that mostly Didn't)

Tried control line but kept falling over

Dabbled with electric round the pole

Discovered girls, alcohol and work.....

Came back to RC Boats for about 10 years

Then took up crashing RC planes..............
