34 y/o from Kings Park NY on Long Island, I have 2 sons 4 and 2. I got into the hobby last August when an incident at work peaked my curiosity. I'm a controller at La Guardia Airport in NYC and I'm sure you guys are all familiar with the incident with a Phantom and an NYPD heli last summer. Not knowing anything about RC flight or quadcopters I was immediately intrigued by the photos of the dji phantom. I started researching them immediately and was about to actually buy one when I stumbled across Flitetest!! This just so happened to be a week or so after the electrohub was released. So forget the phantom, I started to build an electrohub spider quad. With no experience in the hobby whatsoever combined with no experience in soldering or electronics it was slow going. But after I maidened it and my very first flight of any kind went smoothly and everything just worked, I was hooked!! So now, 7 months later and roughly $3000 between tools, supplies, radio, electronics, fpv gear, and a few air frames, I cannot wait for a full season of flying! Thanks Flitetest!!
