More about me:

Like many of my generation, I cut my teeth on balsa chuck gliders and progressed to "proper" aeromodelling (freeflight and control line) throughout my teens and on to RC in the mid 70s once I could afford it, when a combination of ineptitude and CB radios meant going home with an intact model was a novelty!

Started full sized gliding, including a fair bit of instructing which took me away from modelling for many years until marriage and responsibilities consigned me to armchair flying (simulators) for a few years.

Took up RC modelling again in 2002 (after dabbling with helis on and off for a few years) and seemed to take to it like I'd never been away. I'll fly more or less anything I can get my hands on - luckily a good number of my fellow club members trust me to do their initial test flights - do a bit of instructing and indulged my hooligan side in 1/12 scale combat for a while.

I'm a strong supporter of the BMFA Achievement Scheme  and have been an examiner for a few years.
