More about me:

Fly IC (mainly) and electric fixed wing. Now dabbling in multi-rotor UAVs. Completed an MSc in UAS Technology and intending to operate in that market commercially - have passed the Ground School and Flight Test for a PfCo. 

Now back as Chairman of the Oldham Model Aero Club for a second stint and a club instructor. I do have a B certificate in Fixed Wing.

My main rc hobby interests are sportsman aerobatics and stand off scale + also making sure we all have fun on the flight-line!  Embarrassingly I have too many models to list here including a few ‘hangar queens...’

Professionally I am now semi retired having worked at senior levels in the Aerospace industry since 1980 and running my own companies supporting that sector. I have my own UAS company that sponsors the BMFA National Centre and I am a sessional lecturer at Glyndwr University in subjects related to Unmanned Aircraft Operations & Technologies.

I have always loved aeroplanes and WWII warbirds in particular. (Been in love with the Spitfire since I first saw the Airfix Mk IX 1/72 scale bagged kit in the early sixties...)
