“(set a status)”
Born in 1957 and have had a lifelong fascination with aviation and spaceflight. Always dabbling with flying toys, airfix models and KK kits as a kid and making up electronic projects. Bought my first set of radio in the mid 70s but only had minimal success because of lack of help. The dream of successful R/C flight only came to be for me in the early 80s when I joined a good club and was really educated about the intricacies of model aeroplane building and flying.
Worked in engineering throughout my life, mainly in customer service ranging through print, telephone,energy management and mass mailing/ sorting machinery . Retired in 2012.
Main area of interest in modelling is F/W scale and aerobatics, but did get into helicopters as a challenge a few years ago - passed my heli 'A' and became reasonably competent but it's not really an area I'll go much further with beyond the basics. Been a club F/W examiner for quite few years and also gave up a lot of time instructing although I no longer do that. Been my club's membership secretary since 1999. Enjoy building and flying in equal measure.
