RC Planes CNC and FPV
RC aircraft or planes have been my thing since about 2000 and I have built many types from ARTF(Almost-Ready-To-Fly) to scratch built (you do it all yourself). I’m into most things with engines and wings including hot wire cnc for wings and fuselage.
I’m also a big bike fan and managed to achieve one of my bucket list items in 2014. I visited the Isle of Man for the Senior TT. Some of the picture’s I’ve taken with my Nikon D3000 DSLR are on this site.
Cars was where I started my working career when I was 17 many years ago. Jaguars especially, I was lucky enough to own one and complete a 4 year apprenticeship on them.
Recent projects include Vickers Super VC10 used in the 1960’s and 1970’s by many airlines and just recently retired from RAF.
