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 Champion, November 9, 2007.

Alex plans to compete in eight or more IMAC competitions in 2008 including the 2008 National Championships in Muncie, Indiana. Alex will also follow the IMAA schedule making twelve or more events including Joe Nall located in Woodruff, South Carolina at The Triple Tree Aerodrome and hosted by The Confederate Airforce. He will also participate in three or four AMA sanctioned Fun Fly Events in 2008. Alex was asked to fly a noon time demo at the Fly for Totís fly in at RD-RC in Youngsville, NC on 9/17/07.

Alex has been flying his back up JíTec Extra with a sponsored transmitter given to him by East R/C, a new in 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!
