Several competitors, including (back L-R in orange Futaba shirts) Chip
Hyde, Brett Wickizer, Chad Northeast, Bryan Hebert, and (bottom L)
F3A legend Wolfgang Matt, during the 2010 F3A Pan American
Championships in Medellin, Colombia.
will give a second thought to competing.
Not everyone will have the same
opportunities that I have had. It’s only
a lucky few who get to travel the world
to compete, but traveling is not what
makes it so special.
Competition itself strips everything
unnecessary out of your life. If you
remain open to the lessons that the trials
and tribulations of
teach you, there is
no better teacher.
There is no better
way to get to
know yourself, no
better way to test
yourself, and no
better way to push
On top of
that, every facet
in RC aviation
has an incredible
it that is engaging,
friendly, and helpful in so many ways. You
owe it to yourself to give it a shot.
