More about me:
Been flying since my early teens, so over 25 yrs experience now! Keen R/C Slope and Electric model flyer - B Cert F/W.
I used to fly I/C, its how I started out, and have flown models from vintage Junior 60s to scale Hurricane - and most types in between - but have now sold all my old oily engines and Im now pure glider or electric.
Still a keen traditional builder (although I do own some ARTF and foamies too!) and always on the look out for that slightly different or rarely modelled project. Active member of the Power Scale Soaring Association (and Webmaster of their site www.pssaonline.co.uk) I fly my flat field stuff at Alport Model flying club member at Belper, Derbyshire.
I work for Rolls-Royce plc as an Engineering Programme Manager, Aerospace Engines, Derby. I'm married to Emma and we live in Ripley with my son, Harry, born Dec 2009 and young daughter, Phoebe, born Nov 2012. We have a very lazy cocker spaniel, Coco. I play a bit of football, golf, squash and badminton. The sum of all these parts accounts for most of my time when Im not building or flying!!
