Me (left) with some guy who turned up at one of our events with a strange accent and a couple of bright orange Vigors. Seemed to fly pretty good though :)

About me...

I'm a R/C helicopter enthusiast from Wellington, New Zealand. I'm a member of the Wellington Model Aeroplane Club (WMAC) and also the Kapiti Model Aeroplane Club where I fly my helicopters.

I've got three helis at the moment, a JR Vigor Standard, JR Vigor CS and a Xcell Fury Tempest FAI, all are powered by OS 91's and all these machines have a different role. The Std Vigor is used for general 'beating', the CS is used for 3D and the Tempest for FAI.

I've been flying now since about October 2000, and try and fly every weekend that the weather allows. I compete in competitions at the F3C level and I'm getting into 3D a bit more now and am loving every minute of it, let's face it, with little helis, if you're not sweating and shaking like a dog, you're not learning anything...

I started with a little JR Ergo 46 and beat that little machine to death, it became like Grandpa's axe, I think by the end I had replaced everything but the fan shroud, canopy and radio tray :), I then got a JR Z230 Gasser which I flew for a while before selling it to get a Standard Vigor to compliment the CS which I had brought earlier. In addition I'd brought a Voyager 50 to replace the old Ergo and I've only just sold it to concentrate on the big 91 powered machines.

We have a strong club here in Wellington, a lot of good people who encourage each other. We travel alot to other clubs around the North Island and keep in close contact with fliers from all over the place.

I'm a computer engineer by trade, so I thought I'd spend a bit of time documenting some of the trials and hints I've got, and given to beginners I meet. I'm aiming this website to be a comprehensive source of helicopter information and hope to grow it further each month.

If you have any questions or comments, please, feel free to email me at simon@littlerotors.com. If you've got any content or opinions you'd like published, forward that onto me as well.

Look forward to hearing from you!
