Remote Controlled Models

Kevin has been involved in radio control models for 30 years. At the age of 13 he assembled a 1/10 scale car from a kit. Shortly after that, he started racing at local tracks until attending college. After marriage and having children he returned to the local race circuit teaching and enjoying the hobby with his son.

5 years ago, with the help of the internet and YouTube, he taught himself and then his son to fly radio controlled models. After hours and hours of cutting models out by hand, he scratch built a CNC router table to aid in the building and designing of remote controlled models.

Kevin has designed a number of models and freely released them to the RC community to further the hobby. He has been building models and drones from scratch over the last 4 years with which he enjoys line of sight flying and first person view flying.
