Practice, and only Practice will make you perfect




Starting this thread on the request of Mr KK Iyer from Indore, Anyone can add people who have rendered Yeoman service to RC field particularly in this sub continent, what the heck on this planet.  Would invite Mr KK Iyer to do the honors first.

PS
I request you to keep your personal differences aside and not to indulge in any slander

Couldn't have thought of a better Opener!

I've had the good fortune of interacting with Uncle Kumar a number of times. My first ever RC Trophy (Brave Borderer Boat) for accurate sailing, was handed over to me by him.

My nomination would be Mr. Tapan Dutta, erstwhile employee of India Hobby Centre. A street smart jack of all trades who convinced a lot of youngsters to join the hobby with his "its easy and you can do it" attitude. I am what I am due to his initial guidance and support.

Either no one sees this thread.
Or
Not many qualify for the Hall of Fame.
I could nominate myself, but I have not contributed anything for over 30 years.
So I will nominate another.
A guy known only as Anwar.
Anyone heard of him?
Runs a site which is probably the biggest contribution to Indian aeromodelling in recent years.
Anyone would like to second the nomination?

Anwar Sahab has my vote - we always miss out on the obvious, don't we? Apologies to the Boss for not having mentioned him earler. We wouldn't have been discussing this within 7789 people had it not been for him.

Last nominee from me for today.
V V Nanda, Secretary & CI of IITK Gliding Club for many years.
It was under his leadership that I could start the aeromodelling club in IITK in 1978/79, even though I was not from IITK! And take IITK Teams to SMAE comps at Safdarjung
I was however a member of the Advisory Council.
He was the guy who got us the funding to get the first OS 20s, obtained from USA by one of the Aero BTechs, maybe Ijaz Parpia or Adnan Merchant or .... Who was the guy who went to Boeing.... Too long back to recall
Mr Nanda used to claim he had instructed one Mr Rajiv Gandhi, which we never believed.
Till the same Mr Gandhi came to IITK and gave Mr Nanda a hug in front of the whole crowd!
Some of the Aero BTechs, especially the glider fliers may remember

Thanks to Superman, otherwise known as Gusty (Gutsy?) for starting this and adding pics. How did you find Nanda? IITK archives?

Abhay, i've phoned Ravi

Next nominee.(Christopher) John DeCruz. One time Manager of IHC Delhi, who made IHC like a club.with members like the younger Mr Gandhi. One time maintainer of Indian Airlines IBM mainframe in Chennai. Mentor to dozens of young aeromodellers (since 1968!). This is what he looks like now (photo published without permission)

About 30-40 years back, for some reason I didn't have my C/L stunter to compete against Ravi Kumar (maybe even Kalsi). I had to buy a 35 size stunter, with engine and Ureely on loan, for Rs 500, from Mr VK Nagar. Next day I returned it. Mr Nagar said 'a deal is a deal. No refund. But if you don't want the airplane, take something else for 500 bucks.' So I took the Merco 35. Used it till 1992. Packed since then. Mr Nagar may remember the year of manufacture. Here's the pic.

That person DOES NOT belong here. PLEASE do not debase the sanctity of this thread by including him on the same platform as Uncle Kumar. I insist. Please don't make a mockery out of this thread.

That person also thanks you for your thoughtfulness and graciousness, however, he feels that he does not qualify to stand amongst the other giants mentioned here.  Bow
