I've been a modeller for many years. I've taught others to fly, been secretary of the local club and built their website (www.lmmac.net). I took a break for a few years when my kids were born but this year I found my way back to the hobby thanks to Flite Test and HobbyKing.
Red20RC is my way of firstly encouraging my activity as a flyer and secondly to put something back into the hobby that I have been obsessed with for so much of my life...
Here is the official blurb from the site:
Red20RC was created in an attempt to collect together information and ideas that will help Aussie RC pilots get into the air quickly and with the minimum amount of expense.
We are passionate about designing, building and flying model aircraft. The arrival of groups and services such as FliteTest and HobbyKing has breathed new life into the hobby. We aim to build on their belief that aeromodelling isn’t an elitist pastime.
I try to get at least one new article a week online and I am trying to rope a couple of other flyers from the club in to help me. I have also mad it possible for visitors to register on the site and create articles if they want to - although this is not a major driver for me.
What I am not trying to do is recreate Flite Test! I don't have the time, manpower or finances to do that. Everything that goes into and onto the site I self-finance.
I have also just registered a new business in Australia called "Remote Pilot" that I will use to explore the commercial use of drones and UAV's - but that is still very much in its infancy.
So, come and have a look and see what you think. I have a YouTube channel, Facebook page and Twitter feed that I try to keep active.
