Stephen Port

This Tiger Moth of Stephen's was a nine year labor of love and is a most magnificent work of art. He even fashioned workable hinges for the doors. Stephen's craftmanship and paint jobs are unsurpassed.



Sam Kennedy

Sam is a long time member who has converted his JR radio to 2.4GHz and bought his first electric. He is seen in this picture with his US Air Force T-28D Trojan which he has just finished progaming with his trasmitter.



Jim T. Graham

Jim T. is the head honcho for the Profile Brotherhood which is a group that only flies airplanes having a profile fuselage. He is better known in Pro Bro circles as "Billy Hell." Notice the "thousand-mile stare" that Jim T. always has when posing for pictures. The local gathering of the Pro Bros is called NashBro and is held at Leiper's Fork in September.



Dr. Bill Bradford

This large model is a WWI Fokker D.VII and is really a beaut! The plane is much larger than it appears in the photo. She is constructed of laser-cut balsa and the painted fiberglass parts and accurate scale lozenge camouflage covering on the bottom of the wings and tail give it an authentic look. There is an exceptional level of detail which includes the scale wheels, engine, simulated stamped metal fuselage sides, and molded guns. The dummy engine is a 6-cylinder Mercedes engine with exhaust stack and simulated rocker arms. The wing span is 65 inches and weighs an incredible 9 pounds. The D.VII uses an Eflite 60 motor with two 5000mAh LiPo batteries.



Michael Hines

Mike is always experimenting with prototypes by various companies. He is pictured with a beautiful P-38J "Putt Putt Maru" interceptor. During WWII, the plane was flown by fighter ace and commander Col. Charles McDonald.



Matt Russell

Matt says, "I grew up in Huntsville, hanging out with my dad and brother at Rocket City Radio Controllers (RCRC) where my dad taught me to fly a Gentle Lady powered glider. I flew actively through the end of college, when work in the auto industry called me to spend roughly the next 20 years in New Jersey and New York City. My wife, Christine, and I moved with our 2-year old, Thomas, to Nashville this past holiday season, and as a semi-retired dad, I am embracing the chance to spend a summer in the South after nearly two-decades away! Flying RC has made me better at flying the "real thing," my other favorite pastime, wherein I own and operate an older Cirrus SR-22 based at John Tune airport.

"Thanks to the AMA site, I discovered EWMA on the same day I renewed my RC permit, and sent in my dues sight-unseen. I have been thrilled to meet a few EWMA pilots each week and to enjoy the facility. After a childhood full of wrecking balsa models painstakingly assembled by Dad, I've become something of a "foamy addict" because I can't believe how far they've come in my lifetime. I'm currently flying a Carbon Cub, Cirrus SR-22T, and V900 Speedster, all from Horizon, and I'm finishing a beautiful GeeBee R-2 ARF my dad started a few years ago and hung from the ceiling. I love practicing landings to an absurd degree, so I try to fly when it's not busy—no one likes a runway hog!

"Sincere thanks to the Poobah and the EWMA membership for the warm welcome at the field. I already owe a few EWMA members for some great tips and advice."
