  • Welcome

    Thanks for dropping by my website. It's still evolving, but I hope you find something interesting here.

    My current interest is in "micro" radio-controlled planes, by which I mean anything under an ounce, or 28 grams. I started in mid-2003 with a Lil Skeeter from DWE, alas now out of business.

    After that I started building my own designs, starting with derivatives of the Skeeter. Then someone at the club turned up with a Butterfly, and I realized I could build a plane based on similar construction techniques, but much smaller. Hence Martin's Mono was created, 7-3/4" wingspan and less than 10 grams.

    I moved from San Jose to Thousand Oaks in southern California. The local flying club, Conejo Quiet Fliers, flies outdoors every morning, weather permitting, and I now can attend Matt Keennon's monthly indoor flying in Simi Valley, 20 minutes away. So, I'm very happy with my new situation. Oh, and we're 10 minutes away from our daughter, son-in-law and new granddaughter. Life is pretty good.

    If you have comments or questions please feel free to contact me at mnewell222000@yahoo.com
