OK friends, I have the oportunity to create my first blog so here we go.
I live in Merida Yucatan Mexico, southern part of the country.
I love building and flying planes, more into 3D than nothing else.
Started with contorl line at age 10 and rubber band free flight.
Fast forward some years and in 2003 I found The Profile Brotherhood. I was amazed!!! Finally a non expensive way to try my hand at 3D with the profile planes!!
Since then I have built (and crashed) several planes but finaly I'm hovering and flat spinning my planes at my will.
Along the way I met some of the finest people in the world, and found ways to buy stuff that wasn't available here in my country.
The Brothers have helped me a lot.
So to round up, thanks to FG tl let me share all this with the comunity.
Jose.

well i have thought it out and i think my winter build will be an Hostetler 35% edge 540t.i have always wanted this plane and i am finally going to have one.i am trying to get some of my building skills worked back up so i can start building a way to retire soon.i was taught by aj lee the finer tools of the trade but he has held over a few secrects i think. i will post pictures when i get back from tucson when i start it from a builders kit form.i have been building since i started in rc in 1963 so i do hold a fair bit of experience

As of right now, there's not a whole lot going on down here. This is about to change, the weather is getting a little cooler, we can actually spend a few hours outside without passing out.

I have an IMAC contest this weekend, I'll let you know how it went.

c'ya for now!!

After the weekend trip into KY a couple of weeks ago, my RC skydiver was in need of major surgery. The body box was in pieces after a 200' dirt dive.

Well after two periods on the operating table, for a total of about 3 hours surgery, Lucky lives.

I gave him a few days to get his strength back and he was airborne again. the jump was a success, but the landing was off. He landed about 25 yards out in the bean field. I have worked on the steering lines on his chute and he is ready for another jump.

Today me and my buddy Brett Bayless (HeyDick on FG) took our brand new DW Foamies BAF Yak out for some flying. Little windy, but had a blast. Tore through about 5 packs before the wind became too much. Good times.
