Name: James (Jim) Smith
Location: Sacramento, California
Years of flying Experience: 20
Some Brief Highlights:
I have competed in racing, primarily Reno Style Warbird Racing for many years and am currently participating at the Gold Level. Also participate in a local club series called the SAM "Outlaws" and have won the yearly series on multiple seasons.
I enjoy all forms of flight but lean towards WW2 fighter aircraft as my primary passion whether it be racing or scale.
I have flown JR Propo radios since 1999 starting with my first radio a JR 622. Currently I fly the DFA T44 radio pictured below and love it for its great "feel" and incredible flexibility. I currently have multiple planes on DMSS using standard servo configurations, but I am slowly buiding up a number of DMSS/Xbus aircraft and currently have two planes that are 100 percent Xbus. I am extremely excited for the future of JR Propo and love to help pilots who have questions regarding JR product (others also, just not as great a love).
I currently also serve as an officer for the local club I belong too, I am a AMA Life member, and run a monthly race at my local field (19th year and counting).
When not flying I and my wife enjoy spending time with our two boys who are active in youth competitive soccer.
