Hello and welcome to RcPilot-Online.com!


Before we tell you about us and our subscribers, we want to thank you for taking the time to visit this site. It is an unfortunate truth that the internet these days is far more often used as a tool for commerce rather than education and entertainment. Looking for information on a subject can very often lead you to pages more interested in selling you products than informing you about them. If you are here, it is because you want to know a little more about RC airplanes before you make any purchases. A very wise decision, you are to be commended.
The purpose of this site is not only to reach out to French RC airplane enthusiasts but international ones as well. With all the differences people seem to focus on, it is good sometimes to bind together over common interests. Whether your joy is ready-to-fly, scale modeling or even putting everything together from scratch this is an involving hobby that is an experience more enjoyable when shared.
Let us introduce you to Pierre Charpentier, one of our top subscribers. Pierre is a 45-year-old accountant residing in Paris. He can often be found in his off hours at either Eol Modélisme or Parc Montsouris flying his latest creation. “My father and I would spend hours building planes together when I was a boy.” says Pierre. “And now, my son Michel and I share the hobby. He is busy with university just now, but we still work on planes together when we can.” Pierre’s great interest is scale models of World War II craft. “My grandfather used to tell me about spring of ’44, when a P-51 Mustang (piloted by William Overstreet Jr.) chased a Messerschmitt Bf 109 right under the Eiffel Tower. Someday, perhaps, Michel and I can recreate that feat with our RC planes.”
But do not think an organization dedicated to RC airplanes is strictly a boys club! Nor is it only for the city slickers. In fact, this is a hobby best enjoyed somewhere with a lot of open space. Meet Clotilde Devereaux, a 23-year-old farmer from Gers. When she isn’t milking goats or feeding chickens, Clotilde likes to retire to her workshop where she painstakingly constructs pylon racers and fanciful looking ornithopters. “I don’t always know when or where there’s going to be a gathering for a pylon race, so I subscribed to RcPilot so I can always stay on top of when the next big race is! Of course, I like showing off my ornithopters too. The goats like to chase them across the field. But sometimes, I want another person to admire them.”
Recently, an international company has shown interest in subscribing to us. Feliciano Russo, owner of L’elettronica di Russo out of Venice, Italy, has expressed an interest in our quarterly issued publication. “Electronic gadgets are both my work and my play.” says Feliciano. “I look forward to connecting with other people worldwide who share a fascination with technology that can help our minds soar into endless possibilities.” Feliciano is a bit of a maverick. He likes novelty shaped RC blimps and on weekends he can often be found on one of Venice’s many bridges controlling a brightly colored dirigible as it floats over the canals. “I once scared the (expletive deleted) out of a gondolier with a shark shaped blimp!” he recalls with a laugh.
