Even during the busiest times of my life I have endeavored to maintain some
form of model building activity. This site has been created to help me chronicle
my journey through a lifelong involvement in model aviation, which
all began in Mayo, MD

Control Line Stunt Pattern Flown at Hobby Park, NC
I don't recall ever seeing a video of the AMA control line stunt pattern being flown while a narrator
announces each maneuver and describes how it should look. BJM Enterprises owner Bill Mandakis tells the story while I video the flight. Bill
is an avid C/L stunt flier and meets a couple times a week with a local cadre of club members at
Hobby Park in Winston-Salem,
As time permits
(which unfortunately is not very often), I am currently building an electric-powered
line model that was designed by and is kitted by Bill. Conveniently, he lives just a couple miles from
me, so sage advice is available when needed. The wing is on the building board now and is going together
nicely. I bought the motor, controller, and battery setup that was specified uniquely for the Enterprise-E.
A full write--up on the process, along with photos, will be posted once it is complete, so stay tuned.
I will eventually have a complete write-up of the
Enterprise-E construction project, but for now
you can follow the progress by the photos posted.
