Hello, I am a french modeler for several years (I was 14 when I started, I am 57 now…). This passion came at school in Poitiers (center west of France). Thanks to my teacher Mr Rondeau who taught me how to build a CB glider. Since then, the virus of model planes never ended…
The youth period was productive with many models built in the basement of my parent’s house. Then came my mariagge and my family life with my wonderful sons. When my boys were teenager, passion was still present and I joined my first model club (MACCT near Tours, France), where I was initiated to radio controlled flight.
I learned to control the models and built my first Rc plane. It was a “bizuth”. Indeed at this period of time, only constructed models were flying, and no ready to fly were at shop… My second plane was a calmato and an arcus as glider..
Since then, I have built so many, also bought many (too many according my wife).
I participated as a referee and technical officer in may contests, more particularly to F3D. I have planes, gliders, indoor and I have a multicopter
