I am a fibrowarrior!
Hi Richard, great to hear from you and I’m so glad I’ve found your community, I’m struggling with mental health and disability issues as well as my daughters mental health. It’s all rather draining but hey ho, onward and upward! You’re right, I do love flying and my husband has a private pilots licence. I did start my own journey down that route but mobility issues put paid to that as it did my love of driving fast sports cars and horse riding. I now watch horror movies, murder documentaries and knit and read. Rather boring and a tad morbid but better than stagnating! Looking forward to chatting too. With my very best good wishes, Gail
Hi @ethanscott and thank you so much for your lovely message. I used to fly RC gliders, drive RC cars and boats back in the day and my boyfriend at the time owned a shop selling all things RC, in fact he still does! It’s great fun isn’t it! Fantastic way of meeting people too if you join a club. I’ve often thought about trying RC helicopters but they’re expensive to buy and quite hard to fly although I must say I’m tempted to get a drone! My other half isn’t flying real aircraft at the moment as he has copd and needs to get another medical done so maybe I’ll get him one for his next birthday, although he’s completely in love, as am I, with spitfires. There’s an airfield near us that offers flights in a twin seater spit’ so I’m saving up to send him on one of those. I think he’ll lose the plot big time in a good way if he gets the chance to go up in one What RC aircraft do you fly? Wishing you a lovely Friday, all the best, Gail x
