ABOUT ME

Final check.jpg

My name is Tony and my interest in aviation started very early.  My childhood home, in Fond du Lac Wisconsin, was near the local airport and just a half-hour south of the famed EAA in Oshkosh.  During the summers, our front yard was a front-row seat for watching the warbirds return to base after the airshow.  When I was just 3 years old, my father and brother built their first RC model and started flying.  While I was still too young to learn to fly myself, I always tagged along.  I even had some old airplanes and transmitters that were handed down to me to use as toys.  Several years later, my father and sister pursued their private pilot licenses.  Naturally, I again tagged along as often as I could.  When I was about 9 years old, the opportunity finally came for me to start learning to fly RC.  That winter I built my first kit and soloed it the following season.  I was officially hooked.

I have pursued many different aspects of the hobby including scale models, combat, helicopters, and gliders; just to name a few.  I have built over 100 airplanes, most from either kits or scratch.  I also have drawn several plans, fulfilling a childhood goal of mine.  I offer these plans as free for download in hopes that it will encourage others to build instead of buying an ARF or finished model.

 I am always looking forward to the next project or challenge.  So take a moment to view my website and follow along with me as I continue to grow in this great hobby.
