Interesting Fact/Little about yourself:
I got tired of having to go home from the field because of low batteries, so I became the owner/creator of Jewel RC generators for endless flying. Been Flying Miniature Aircraft since 1997, travel to about 15 flying events per year, and I try to get out to fly daily whenever the weather permits and even built a radio glove furnace to fly in the cold winter months. Other interests include aerial photography and travelling around the world to meet other heli pilots and help them out with their machines. If I’m not out flying or travelling, you can usually find me on the forums helping out people with their gassers.

Interesting Fact/Little about yourself:

I am 21 years old, currently a Mechanical Engineer at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford. I have been flying helicopters for six years. My very supportive father and I began with hobbyzone aircraft in a field behind the local medical facility just across the road. Since then, simulators became the ultimate tool to expand the flight envelope. My first helicopter was an Eflite Blade CP Pro, then a Blade 400. When this was upgraded to the teeth, I worked my way up to competition size helis. Gaui 550, Raptor 50 (first nitro), Trex 450, 250s, 600N, 700N&E, Synergy N9, Gobblins, and finally we are here with Miniature Aircraft flying the Whiplash.

Helicopters have manifested my mechanical skill set from a young age, and Scouting has taught me about nature, survival, and how to be a constantly improving human being. More recently, I have fallen in love with motorcycles and will one day race them, possibly owning a custom performance shop as well. Future plans may include opening a company providing full scale personal composite electric 3D capable aircraft.

Interesting Fact/Little about yourself:

I started flying R/C helicopers in the late eighties with a Schlueter Junior 50. In the nineties I participated in some F3C contests. In 1997 I accompanied the german F3C team to the WC in Ankara as team-manager (not as a pilot).
I do a lot of test flights with the new parts for the Whiplash family. So if you have any questions feel free to contact me.
