* Brief background of pilot
- How long have you been flying RC helicopters:
I have been flying RC helicopters for around 12 years
- How did you become a SAB team member:
A very well known SAB factory pilot asked me if I would like to fly his Goblin 700. I did and while flying I instantly felt comfortable flying this new style helicopter. SAB had just come out with the 700 and 630, so these were brand new helicopters on the market and SAB was looking to start a USA team. I was asked if I wanted to join the team.
- What do you think about Goblin Helicopters:
I love them! I couldn't imagine flying any other helicopter they fit my flying style perfectly. I like to fly both high head speed, on the deck smack,but also like to mix in very low head speed, graceful and slow maneuvers into my routine. The Goblin allows me to do both and have no bad tendencies. Visually you can't beat a Goblin. They present themselves in the air so well. For me, the Goblin is a perfect match
* Describe your helicopter set up
All my helicopters are equipped with BK servos, Ikon flybarless systems, Castle Creations speed controls, Quantum Motors, and OptiPower batteries power them all.
I have two Goblin 700 competitions, a Goblin 500 and a Goblin 380
