Fountain of knowledge: ask Eric a question and if he doesn’t know the answer he’ll eat his tranny.
Eric has been flying since before he was born and is equally at home with helicopters, ic fixed wing, electric 3D and turbines.
One of those pilots who makes it look effortless though he does fly Mode 1 - which is much much easier as the rest of us know!

Likes: Flying, Flying low and upside down, flying low and fast, generally pushing my luck. Having a laugh with the boys down the field. Confusing Marky and Andy with electrickery mumbo jumbo.
Dislikes: Hangar Queens – they are meant to fly. Avoidable crashes – just ask one of the boys for help.
Other interests: RC anything really. Family, Electrickery. Camping (tent variety only).
