I've been flying radio controlled planes since 2006 and got my first large scale plane in 2008. Since then I've mainly flown aerobatic planes of various sizes and focused on 3D flying. In 2014 i started practicing IMAC in the hope of improving my flying and soon after I entered my first Large Scale Aerobatics competition in the Sportsman class. In 2016 I also started focusing on XA Aerobatics and freestyle. I'm proud to be part of the CMC hobbies and GP model engines team for the 2017 season.

 Here are some of my achievements.

I have been flying R/C aircraft for more than 30 years. I have been active in competitive R/C flying for approx 14 years now, competing in many R/C disciplines at National level, such as Pylon Racing, Pattern flying, Large Scale aerobatics and even Sport Scale for fun. in all disciplines i have achieved regular placings in the top 3 positions over the years. Currently my main focus is Large Scale aerobatics ( IMAC, F3M and 3D or freestyle flying). I am extremely grateful to GP Engines for the opportunity to not only be the SA distibutor for their fine engines, but now to represent them as a sposnored pilot for the 2017 Competition season.
