More about me:

An aeromodeller in my boyhood in the 1950s, my first job was as a trainee designer with International Model Aircraft Ltd (Frog models). I returned to the sport in 1994 after a gap of 35 years while I flew the real thing in the RAF. Im a very trad builder, and prefer to build my own designs, some of which have been published. Im into sport flying of all sorts with a 50:50 emphasis on scale. I've recently sold all my IC models to make a complete switch to electric power. There are no longer any issues on power and endurance.  Electric motors and ESC's are very good value,and batteries get better all the time.  I'm a slightly better pilot than I was, but at my age I don't expect to get much  better. However, I don't break models very often so its not all bad.
