Biography

"I used to go with my father at the flying field since I was 4-5 years old. At that time I used to play with my friends while my father flew his nitro planes. When I was 9 and a half years old I took the first step to R/C and began taxing his (dad's) plane's back to the pits from the runway after his flights. A year later I began to taxi them out to the runway. When I was 12 years old back in 2006 I felt the need to jump to the next step, flying!

When I decided to began learning to fly these beauty we did not have a trainer model and it would have took time to build one (which I didn't have) so I began flying lessons from my dad with infect my dad's low winger models. The first plane that came in my hand was a 'Precedent' Fun Fly but didn't last long. After that my dad had crashed it I continued my flying lessons on a 'Ripmax' Wild Card but than he crashed that one as well. I continued and finished my flying lessons with those two plane and with the full support of my dad.

I got my first model after about a year I started flying. This was a blue 'Precedent' Fun Fly which I friend of my dad gave me. From there on it was all up to me to start flying and learning aerobatics. Although I began aerobatics after about a little more than a year that I started flying, I began the way to 3D and freestyle two years after with a 'Ripmax' Bossanova. Next plane was a 'Hanger 9' Funtana S90 and than the one that I really learn't from, 'Phoenix Model' Yak 54 63". That was my very first Yak and since than I have only bought Yak's as aerobatic airframes. 

                                                                

                When I was still learning with the Fun Fly in my                                                                                          The Fun Fly                                                            hand's and my father next to me

Since now I flew various types of model airplanes and even an ultra-light aircraft. I mostly specialize in freestyle and 3D flying and also I am having big success with jet models. At this stage I have reached a point which help's me allot to my future R/C career but this only a first step to a non-stop climbing hill without an end. Right now I am mostly looking at foreign freestyle competitions and to get support from anyone which could make my future possible."
