Alex Porter, Willow Springs NC - At age 10 (as of this writing in early '08), Alex has been flying remote control airplanes solo since age five. Alex
is a four time participant in the Matt Chapman Youth Masterís held in Woodruff, South Carolina. Alex has completed two seasons competing in
the SE Regional IMAC. Alex spent the 2006 IMAC season in the Basic class flying a 35% airplane. Alex also started the 2007 IMAC season flying
the same 35% airplane until he experienced engine problems and had to switch to a 40% airplane as a backup. Alex continued to fly the 40% airframe
for the rest of that year. As the 2007 IMAC season came to a close, Alex had competed in competitions from as far north as Warrington
Virginia, southwest to Pratteville Alabama, and as far south as Jacksonville Florida were he earned the title of SE IMAC Regionalís Sportsman

the box JR 9303 2.4. Wayne Mathews the owner of Sew Busy has graciously offered to sponsor Alex for the 2008 season with some fine apparel.
At the Fly for Totís Alex had the pleasure of a brief discussion with Quique about practice techniques and gaining knowledge from other pilots.
Quique commented to Robert Vess, about his interest for our sport.
Alexís school grades are well above average. Feel free to ask any SE IMAC
Pilot about Alex Porter and they are sure to give him praise that is well deserved. He is truly an amazing pilot and has to be one of the most
polite kids in our sport today.
Over the past five years Alex has been pictured in several nationally distributed magazines featuring remote control planes and their
pilots. East R/C is PROUD to be a sponsor of this up-and-coming new contest pilot!

Josh Bunn, Zebulon NC - Josh has been flying R/C since 1998, and flies all types of models.
His interests range from scale models to high speed delta wings (OUTLAW!). Josh began flying
IMAC a few years ago and some would say that it has 'swallowed him whole'. As of this writing
in '08, Josh is also the District IV IMAA Director.
Josh has a great personality, and loves to talk to people about our sport. He is the perfect
representitive for any R/C organization and/or company, being both knowledgeable and personable.
East R/C is PROUD to sponsor Josh Bunn in his IMAC & Sport flying efforts. He currently flys several aircraft from
East R/C, and can be seen at events all over the east coast. Watch for him at an event near you!
