Steve “DoubleQuad” Winnard

I work in IT as a developer and this flows through to my love of the tech side of this hobby.  With that said, I prefer the same approach we use at work – never use version 1 gear as it will almost certainly be buggy. Thus, the gear I use tends to be slightly older but definitely proven as reliable. There are times when I try new gear and it seems that when I do, problems come with it 😉

Its hard to nail down what kind of flying I prefer, as I really do enjoy getting out to the park and chasing the others guys around a course, but I also do enjoy just getting out there and doing some freestyle from time to time.

I enjoy building quads almost as much as I love flying them, and I certainly have a large dose of G.A.S. (gear acquisition syndrome) which I think followed me from my drumming days. This has manifested itself in the shear number of frames I have – flyable, retired and broken!

This year I have decided to cut the number of frames down to two, get them solid and reliable and then leave them alone! The problem is that I really haven’t found those two frames yet. I’m close, but not quite there.
