Title: My introduction
Post by: polarisfan on February 05, 2012, 07:26:06 PM
Hello, and good afternoon from a very cold, (-4 degrees and 5 inches of snow) UK! I am not new to RC, but have not yet flown a mechanically (nitro or electric) powered plane. I have made quite a lot of planes from kits and also a few from Depron. I have always been fascinated by flight, birds or planes. As a boy I lived very close to Manchester airport and used to spend a lot of time just watching them taking off and landing. I am now 65 and still look at any plane overhead. I have made a few gliders and flown them, but without being able to control them, it just  isn't very interesting. I have just purchased an RC glider, evo Alula from dream-flight after seeing one flying. I must admit I am very exited getting it ready for its maiden flight. It's not quite the weather for it just yet, but will still give it a try when it is ready! I am now looking to join a local RC flying club to get some experience to fly some of my 17 planes which are just waiting around in various rooms.
