about me

Posted 02-14-2008 at 07:22 PM by steve28

I got into helis after college after I found a good job . Lets face it RC helis arent cheap and you need good employment or a good sponsor or you dont fly .
RC helis satisfy my need for a good challenge and also its risk taking in the extreme and I like the fact that its not mainstream .
I used to rollerblade alot in my teens and early 20's , and by alot I mean Rollerblade Canada used to give me and my 3 friends free skates every 6 months for like 3 years at one point because we were skating so much , it was a good time for sure but it was murder on the body , cracked ribs and countless bruises and ashphalt burns later I realized it couldnt continue.

heres some clips from those days including CRASH !

rail trick (0 min 8 sec)

flip (0 min 4 sec)

SteveNorthVan (0 min 14 sec) quit and went back to school

I quit and went back to school . I took electroinics technology offered at the local college , learned about circuits, motors, computers, ect .. I still have nightmares about the the math classes .. sombody said "laplace transforms" I thought the Transformers Movie was playing on the french channel !!

After finishing the program I looked for work for 8 agonizing months before landing a job at a plastic manufacturer running lines and doing maintenance . Best Ive ever had ! Got into RC Helis because I finally could and it seems like the time was right what with technology what it is right now in this hobby .

So 2 years ago I picked up a T-REX 450 SE and learned on that , I now have a T-REX 600CF E aswell as the 450 SE . Both Helis are killer but I should have gone to 8S on the 600 , oh well live and learn , Its still fun to fly .
