Got into the hobby by my piano teacher bribing me with a kit. Been hooked ever since, about 1988. I still have my AMA card (the old pale lime green ones) from that year. Been flying off and on ever since, and am a member of the Chicago Model Masters. If it flys, I'm about it, but my main style of flight is Extreme Aerobatics and 3D. Don't get me wrong, I do like jets, but after a while, just going back n forth fast gets boring. Aircraft listed here are of the active fleet.
