Classic Aero-TV: How To Start A GREAT Aero-Life -- Horizon Hobby’s Alex Vanover

From 2015: Alex Has An Amazing Future Ahead Of Him... Because He Wants It

It seems like most pilots love their toys, and even more so if they fly. ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell is no different, and he took the opportunity at EAA AirVenture 2014 to stop by the Horizon Hobby display to see how aircraft modeling is doing.

He spent time talking with Alex Vanover who is the Hobby Town demo pilot. While the video story is about the modeling side of aviation, Vanover’s story as a demo pilot is also unique. However, you’re going to have to watch the video to understand what is so unique about Vanover…you’ll be surprised!

Vanover is enthusiastic about aero modeling and points out that technology is advancing and prices are going down. He points to new features like goggles that allow you to fly with the view of a pilot as if you are in the model aircraft. Another area of technology Vanover addresses is the capability of automatic stabilization in radio-controlled aircraft to reduce the chance of accidents and increase the fun.

Vanover introduces you getting started with an RC model and what to expect as you gain experience. This has got to be one of Jim’s favorite interviews but you’ll have to watch it to see why this is the case.
