Any final comments?

My grandfather started with aeromodelling when he was 12 years old, my father was born with this passion and they gave me the best gift as they teach me more on this wonderful world. All of us are flying gliders planes but our preference goes to aeromodelling. I start aeromodelling in F1 categories (free flight models) when I was 7 years old. This helps me a lot because I understood how to adjust a model airplane to fly perfectly. After that, when I was 11 years old, I had fun with control line models. My family played a lot with the radio control models. First, they teach me other categories but at the age of 12, I entered for first time in the beautiful world of transmitter. My first radio control was a JR Propo Apex, that was one of the most important gifts that I ever received. Actually I fly almost everything and have many new projects with my friends: to compete in F3A, F3P, F6B and would like to have fun with the new F3S
