This magazine was launched by Brian Green in 1991 to coincide with the opening of 1991 FAI World Aerobatic, Pylon and Heli Championships at Wangaratta Victoria. Dad was the Contest Director at the Champs. I have been flying RC since aged 13, when Dad was the Australian agent for Kraft Systems, Dubro, Sullivan, Lanier, Graupner, MK, YS, Sankyo, Pacer Products. Some 10,000 hours spent flying models for fun, competition and commercial, approximately 1000 students later this hobby has never been easier to get into the air or more affordable than it has ever been.
