Art Shelton (Rcart) - Shelbyville, Indiana. -USA
"I am fascinated with flight. Two and three wings are way better than one. My favorites are S-1 Pitts, Laser 200 (I know it only has one wing, but if flown hard and fast the wing blurs and sometimes looks like 2 or 3), and anything from 
World War 1, especially the Sopwith Pup."

WWI airplanes are (for me) the most interesting to look at, on the air and on the ground.  The technology is primitive yet the shapes are complex."

If it has wings and a propeller, it's been a love and fascination for me for as long as I can remember.  I was a scale plastic (mostly WW2) nut as a kid, and Scale R/C is something I've wanted to do since getting in the hobby. WW1 and vintage "Wings with Wires"  have a certain "romance" to them and has snagged me. Besides, you don't have to screw with retracts<g>."

"I enjoy the majesty and personality these old cloth/wood planes have.  They all look different and they all have unique flying characteristics.  These planes require more construction than many modern planes, but can be easily detailed to look very realistic.  Also, I very much admire and respect the courage, pride, and even arrogance the pilots of these planes exhibited."

" I really enjoy flying these old birds.. They are slower and majestic and bring to mind the trials and difficulties that the early pilots had  just keeping them in the air -- not to mention  trying to use them for a purpose..  My first love in planes was a SPAD -- someday I'm going to build one, and fly it.  I think they look and sound so cool- especially with a gas engine."
