Started flying in the 70's, evolved into giant scale sailplanes and giant scale towplanes mid 1990's. Designed my own non scale tug and sold a few. Then developed an interest in aerobatics and flew some Carden scale, and a Hangar Nine 46% Ultimate converted to a tow plane as well as an aerobatic ship., long out of the Hobby been slowly getting re ignited in retirement.
