Hey there! My name is Ken Livingstone,
2016 President of the Whitby Aero Modellers.
FYI: I just started flying myself back in 2011 after wanting to fly since I was a kid. Bought and of course crashed the ubiquous COX Control Line kit we all drooled over way back when and never tried again, until the winter of 10/11 when I tried a friends Real Flight PC simulator, Then I discovered the world of RTF (ready-to-fly) airplanes now availble at a fraction of the cost involved with building a kit just 10 or so years ago and I was all set.
Now I have 20 planes ready to fly at any given time, with only one small foamy hanging in the livingroom just to let my girlfreind know how much I really enjoy the hobby! My main interest is 'Great War' aeroplanes of which I now have 10!
I've ridden and raced motorcycles all my life but now find myself 'wanting to go flying' even more than riding.
I hope you too enjoy now or soon this great hobby and the great people in our Club. They are always ready to answer questions and help you get in the air whatever your interest in model aircraft is. Enjoy!
