I can answer most beginner questions about electrically and gas powered R/C model airplanes(except helicopters)that deals with problems in the air flying or even on takeoff using fundamentals and training methods. I can help explain most basic ground and flight school tips to help others gain more experience on how to fly R/C model airplanes. Iíve been flying for 11 years and taught over ten others to fly.

Experience in the area

Iíve been flying since 1998 and have experience flying all types of electrically and gas powered R/C model airplanes except helicopters. I have skills as an instructor to teach others to become confident R/C pilots. Iíve design homebuilt R/C airplanes and made many successful test flights. Iím actually a pilot for over 5 years and I understand the aerodynamic forces and have different training methods that I use to make flying easier and understandable for R/C pilots. Iíve helped over ten others to accomplish their goal flying R/C model airplanes.
