24 yrs old. Part time University Student/ Full time Irrigation technician.

I make custom electric guitars in whatever spare time I have and helis are just the next logical step.

Maybe I should make a helicopter theme guitar or maybe a guitar shaped heli...

15 here. I have been involved in RC since I was 8. I got my first Nitro car at 12. Now I have a micro-heli, 2 Nitro trucks, 1 Nitro car, an UltraSport 40, AeroBird, Avistar, and some model warships. You can check them out at the [link=http://www.ntxbg.org]North Texas Battle Group[/link].

I'm 53, with an 11 year old son, we've been flying e-powered planes for about 4 years, I am a displace electrical engineer, now in sales. I am the secretary of the SEFLI (Silent electric flyers of LI) we host the NEAT fair each year. I am a novice heli pilot still on the training gear. I have a VE and just put a deposit on a used ECO 16. ( My son is a great pilot can fly almost anything, he wants a heli now also (think about fixing 2 heli's at a time!)

I'm 24 and my wife and I have a 1 year old daughter. I'm trying to make time for this hobby.

Computer Engineer and am interviewing for jobs currently, after being caught in the techie layoffs :-)

I now have time for my new mini dragonfly. These things rock!

I started with an electric heli(kalt whisper) about 10 years ago then a lmh100 gasser for 3 years. I must say electrics are much nicer to work with...if only I had a pool of charged batteries.
But you got to hand it to gas for flight time and power gradient.

I've been running a traxxas nitro stampede for several years also.

Everyone seems to have an airforce background. I think maybe that's where I should go too [8D]

29 years old, got a smartech skylark 6 months ago, and I like it a lot. I've broken it a few times but I've always been able to fix it. Never into RC before that.
Grad Student now, and have have a private pilot license for almost 3 years. Real planes are easier to fly than RC helis!

Hi,
I am 38 and my turn on's and turn off's are.........oops excuse me, wrong forum.

Been flying Park Fliers for 3 years now and running a Nitro HPI Savage Monster Truck that's tweeked out for 2 years.

Just bought a Piccolo Fun and waiting for my modified parts to come in.

Practicing with the Real Flight Flight Simulator and learning Heli's are a totally different world!

Im 33, and a Tool and die maker. I have more than 20 years R/C experience (Sailplanes). This helps more than you can imagine. I have had my Heli (Dragonfly)for 3 days and an now hover easily for a minute or more...fun fun..

My other obsession is Dragracing. I have a 68 Roadrunner, it runs 8.90's at 150 MPH...go to my website to see more www.cdignition.com

Hi Walt here

41 years old, 22 of them in the Air Force. Started as a Photo/Sensors technician (electronics geek), been a Flight Engineer on the C-5 Galaxy for the last 4 years. Cubby, I've been to Baghdad recently and you can give those jobs to someone else (I'll just visit thank you). Got a wife, 2 teenagers [&:], 2 dogs, a rabbit, hamster, mouse, and tropical fish.

Been flying fixed wing C/L since I was 8, R/C @ 18. Have too many planes to list, 1 gas & 1 electric car, a outboard nitro hydro(I've never run yet) and a FeDa Dragonfly I got for Christmas. My son got a R/C hovercraft for Christmas too. It is a challenge to pilot, but at least it doesn't have large exposed spinning parts to hit things when you crash.
