    I have been into RC most of my life. Hadn't had time to play with the hobby while advancing my career as an Engineer and Technical Manager due to all the travel, etc. I am getting older now (44) and slowing down a little. Also, raising 4 kids isn't cheap! Well, now the kids are grown and moving on, although they still cost me a fortune. I now have more time. About 2 years ago I got back into it.

    I previously used to fly nitro airplanes when I was young in the 80's and it was tough/expensive back then. Wow, how things have changed in 30 years. What was impossible in the 80's is now simple. Now with internet ordering parts are much cheaper and time to get is way reduced. In addition to being an engineer I am an FAA licensed Commercial Pilot and Flight Instructor, (CFII). Aviation has been my life. So, flying RC seemed the right place for me at first again.

    2 years ago I decided to try something challenging. FBL Heli's. Wow! A blast and challenge isn't the word. Took me about 3 months just hover and get orientations down. Then started playing with 3D. Spent a lot of time on simulations perfecting maneuvers before trying with my investments. Getting pretty decent. I do spend a lot of time rebuilding though. For those of you who fly 3D, you know, one simple mistake with FBL Heli's causes mass destruction to your investment! I then moved onto the quads, fast FPV quad racers (OMFG this is a blast) and camera platforms.

    Now getting into surface vehicles and having a blast! I have 6 in my fleet right now. Started with fast and fun. Traxxas E-Maxx Brushless (Love this truck on 6S), Traxxas Ruslter VXL (love this one on 3S and geared up.), LaTrax Rally, Hobbyking 1/10 SCT, Hobbyking 1/10 Mission Drifter, and Hobbyking 1/12 Sandstorm 2WD Buggy. I noticed RTR's or ARR are quick and fun out of the shoot, but they fail quick. Mostly due to low cost cheap parts to keep RTR/ARR platform inexpensive.
