Computers and Electronics:

Computer & Telecommunication Systems have been part of my life for over 30 years. They are a means to support my family and also blead into my hobbies I enjoy in my non-working time with my family members and friends.

My interests with computers started back in the late 1970's when I started programming (tinkering) with a DEC Writer terminal connected to a midrange computer system at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology's EE Department. This access was part of a Hill City High School math course offered as an experiment by my math teacher and the University.  After this I was given a Radio Shack TRS-80 by my parents and the rest is history.  I have been involved with some sort of Electronics and Computers ever Since.

Back into the hobby after a 30 year hiatis !
The Blade mCX Micro Helicopter Fast Forward to 2010 - Wow-How things have changed over the years. The last time I flew anything RC I was 16 years old. To think that I could be flying a fully functional 4 channel helicopter in my family room that only weighs 28g / 1oz (less than 5 quarters) back then would have been impossible. I just have to say that this little micro is impressive to say the least.
