    As the name suggests, I'm a Swede who lives in the green pastures New Jersey, USA. A three year work assignment ended up being 11 years and counting thanks to the wonderful woman who became my wife. I got into RC late 2010 and have gone from trainers, via sport planes to 3D planes. I've been doing 3D for the better part of the 2012 and I've just gone from calling myself a 3D wannabe to a 3D noob. :)

    My favorite plane right now is the Sabre X (sold by ValueHobby) because it has a super solid harrier that lets me do low and slow figure 8s until the cows come home. I'm working hard on perfecting the basic moves (harriers, hovers, waterfalls, walls and spins) and I basically suck. But I'm having fun and I'm making progress.

    I joined this site because I want to learn. Expect me to ask tons of stupid questions. I'm not afraid to show my ignorance and I believe asking stupid questions is the best way to learn.

    Happy huckin'!

    Welcome NJSwede! I had the pleasure of interacting with you a bit on that Saber X thread on RCG under the name "brathanke." From the sound of things your skills are building more than you let on ;) If it helps at all... I'm still a 3d noob as well :D I'll call your attention to this forum in case you haven't already found it. http://www.3drcforums.com/forumdisplay.php?17-How-To-get-Sweet-Skills-Talk

    That is a great place to start threads about questions you have with specific skills. Also, make sure you drop in on the "Ask Joe Smith" forum. We are super excited to have him on board to give some tips and advice and spread the information he has gained in his amazing career. We are working on bringing some other skill building content in as well so stay tuned! One of our goals is to encourage content that hopefully inspires, challenges, and instructs pilots to gain more skills and thereby find greater enjoyment in the hobby.

    Don't be afraid to ask any questions... the only stupid ones IMO are the ones that start with... "can I ask you as stupid question" as a precursor because then I'm all tuned in for a truly stupid question and might be totally underwhelmed by intelligence when compared to the the stupidity factor I was expecting :D
