More about me:
Took up RC flying around November 2009 just prior to retiring. I took the electric route for practicality as all models and equipment had to be kept in the house. I joined a local club in the Edinburgh area for training and after a few month attained my Bronze Certificate. I'm now a member of three local clubs and enjoy flying a mixture of Semi-Scale fixed wing aircraft of the ARTF variety.
Many years ago in a previous life I served an apprenticeship with Hawker Siddeley Aviation at Brough where I worked in the "Flight Shed" servicing the Hull University Air Squadron Chipmunks, the company's DH Dove & Rapide & also the 1932 Blackburn B2 which is now with the Shuttleworth Collection at Old Warden. This aircraft is also the subject of a recent build blogg by Tim Hooper which inspired me to join the forum proper rather than just guesting along.
