I'm a Senior Technical Project Manager for IBM. My work is focused on supporting very large scale data centres, infrastructure, databases and software programs.

I've always been a petrol head. I spent my very early teens playing with diesel powered control line combat models and R/C fixed wing. This fun was interrupted for a while when I started racing Karts at the age of 17. I raced both 125cc and 210cc gearbox classes for 13 years and won many races over that time. When I stopped racing I returned to flying but this time it was Hirobo helicopters. Because of my competitive nature I immediately started flying in fun-fly's and novelty events. This quickly led on to flying in aerobatic events across the UK.

Take the time to really learn how to setup your helicopter for F3C and then It's all about putting in the hours and hours and hours of practice.

Motor Pinion and tail drive gear ratio changes to suit F3C headspeeds.
