I’m not a kid anymore, and I wanted an hobby after moving alone to a new town. So I started flying RC-helicopters. Easy as that :)
Flying with Jeti radio that I’m beginning to love more and more, highly configurable, great to use! I’m a bit “oddball” using a tray-radio even when I’m pretty much only flying heli’s.
Scale has also been always interesting. It’s actually quite hard to make a perfect scale-flight and to make it look good.
Scale-birds are a MD500 in 500-size and Bell 222 in 600-size. Actually quite hard to believe the Bell is only 600.
The idea to this “blog” came as an idea to preserve the small guide’s and how-to’s I keep writing to different forums.
I think it’s time to call this as a “site” nowadays, I think it’s grown out of the “blog”-name. No worries, the man and the thoughts are the same.
I also like to keep the RC Helihobby alive. That is why I’m engaged in some assiociation-work too.
I’m chairman of Finnish RC-heliassociation and Finnish Aeronautical Associations (FAA) aeromodelling committee and also a member of FAA safety committee. And since I need a day-job for money I might not always be available right away for your questions, after all, this is a hobby :)
I either need to start crashing or get more shelves! Since I’m not that found of 3D-flying (because I can’t…) only way to make my flying a bit more interesting is to fool around with smoke’s, really fun and quite good looking! (Also reveals any mistakes if not flying smooth…)
Best and easiest way to get in contact with me is to use the contact-page here. You’ll find me as either TeroS or CP-Geek in different heli-forums, most likely to be found on finnish forum Kopterit.net, or the more international forums RC-Groups or Helifreak. I’m also a vivid Helisweden-reader.
Have a nice flight!
