I’m a Radio Control drone, plane, FPV and all things CNC enthusiast. This is where I share my projects. Some have taken me nearly 3 years to complete, like the Vickers Super VC-10 airliner, others have been a bit quicker. I enjoy building my own aeroplanes, drone or multi-copters which as taken me down the CNC path. My first CNC machine was a Hot Wire CNC foam cutter.
I got inspired to build my Hot Wire CNC machine after making many foam templates for my VC-10 airliner. Since then I’ve built an OX CNC Router and an ANet A8 3D printer I started out as a motor mechanic and drifted into IT and have done that for the last 25 years. Which may sound a strange path to take but has proved very an interesting one. Let me try and explain. You need good analytical skills as a motor mechanic to diagnose problems and that works equally as well in IT. I love building websites even though I’m the wrong side of fifty (actually sixty). This site is made with WordPress and I run the flying clubs website I’m a member of as well bmfa.rotherhamdmfc.org
My projects have included Vickers Super VC10 depron airliner, Avro Lancaster Bomber, CNC hot wire foam cutter, All CNC foam Hawker Hurricane using Profili2 Pro and DevFus software to generate the g-code, OX CNC Router from OpenBuilds design supplied by Ooznest, 3D printing RC parts
I’m also a motorcycle fan and managed to achieve one of my bucket list items in 2014. I visited the Isle of Man for the Isle of Man Senior TT.
I’ve created this site to share some of my builds and video’s and give something back as I’ve had some great help and advice from the internet community.
I’ve become a keen photographer which was probably the result of this website.
One thing I quickly noticed when creating content was that my pictures were quite poor and so I decided to get a Digital SLR camera to improve them. Well, the pictures weren’t much better; the problem was me and I didn’t really understand photography or how to use my Digital SLR camera. One of my lifelong ambitions was to go to the Isle of Man TT races and in 2014 I finally made it and was blown away by the spectacle. But before going I needed to learn how to use my Digital SLR camera. We booked the trip almost 12 months in advance, so I had time, no excuses. Read more here
