I’ve been flying model helicopters competitively since 2003. I enjoy traveling to new events, meeting new people, experiencing different cultures, and sharing the common passion for model aviation. My full time day job is with an airline as a mechanic. If I am not flying helis and airplanes in my spare time, I am riding motorcycles, swimming, wakeboarding, or relaxing with friends.

Align has produced industry leading helicopters for very long time. I find them extremely reliable, very robust, simple to build, and attractive looking. I am very happy with all of my Align models and would recommend them to anyone!
