Yes, I started way too late. It's much harder to learn when you get old.

(but I did learn math)

I'm 63. Been flying for a little over 35 yrs. But I have decided to stop counting.

Now I am trying to get my 6 yrs old daughter interesting in flying. So far she only want to play with Barbies dolls and Hello Kitty.

Go Flying

I'm 22 been flying since I was 9. I started right at the basics with a good old hald launched chuck glider, then moved onto powered free flight and Control Line. after a few years I got my first radio model, a Great Planes PT40 (still had it untill two months ago when I sold it!)
Since then I have progresed on to pattern flying, IMAC, 3D of course... and a bit of helicopter flying.

At present I have in my hanger: ZN Synergy 90 3D, Madness 2, Morris Hobbies Su-Do-Khoi, 2m Funtana S (under construction), 2m PBG Extra 260, Hirobo Shuttle ZX Helicopter.

Hi everybody !!!
I am 41, started at 6, with my older brother ( who was always my instructor ), I remember the thin-plywood profile U/C planes with .049`s modified for external tanks, and later started R/C with a MEN Trainer. Have flown almost everything but turbines. Like teaching and helping others to get started in the hobby, any questions !!!

35 here, second trip back to flying, 1st plane was destroyed by the instructor the second time out.

Getting ready to purchase my first 3D plane even thought it will sit until summer.

O.K. Children ! I guess I'm the oldest up to now. Gonna be 73 yrs. young on the 15th.the Been in the "Hobby" since about 14 yrs. old. I guess I've tried most of it. Free Flight and Control Line in the early forties and fifties. Single Channel RC ( With Escapements) in the Sixties. Went thru the 1-10 Channel stuff where most of your time was spent "Tuning" the receiver to the multible relays. If you got one flight in during the day, it was a good day ! I know you "Senior " can relate. Finally progressed to Proporional when I could afford it.
Currently flying strickly "Sport" with my UCD 60. I can't 3D for crap ! Not agile enough, but I love this plane ! Sorry for rambling on.....

47, been flying for about 8 years. Mostly giant scale and 3D, but dabbled last year in turbines, and now have two kits I am building for next season. Being semi-retired, I travel up and down the east coast during the summer in my RV attending as many events as the family will let me
