Team Pilots

There is something special about our team of pilots that we have chosen to be a part of what we do. Each Team member that has been selected based on skills or knowledge, has also been chosen as first and foremost they are ambassadors to our hobby. Many of them are from a family of pilots whom have passed on their hobby and skills from one generation to another. 

Secondly and most importantly these pilots have put their trust in, and fly and support, the products we sell! We don't just give away free products for reviews, our team pilots all own and fly our products.

Our pilots all support us and our products because they believe in them!

Our Team is shaping up for 2024 ...............

I have been flying R/C aircraft for around 40 years. I have been active in competitive R/C flying for approx 20 years now, competing in many R/C disciplines at National and International level, such as Pylon Racing, Pattern, IMAC / Large Scale aerobatics and even some Sport Scale for fun. Currently my main focus is IMAC  ( Large Scale aerobatics, F3M and 3D or freestyle flying). I am extremely grateful to my sponsors for the opportunity to not only be the SA and UK distributor for their fine products, but also to represent them as a pilot. 

My Favourite radio - the Powerbox Systems CORE of course!

  • Caitlin McInnes - 16 years old and sponsors include DAD!

She is a not only a keen pilot but has always been my go to girl at any events and always been there on the flightline at UK shows to support not only me but all our team pilots. Her favourite planes, the Flex innovations Cessna 170 and RV-8 60e!

Her Favourite radio - Powerbox Systems ATOM of course!


  • Dani G-Ellison

I have been flying remote controlled Aircraft for 20+ years and share an avid interest in aircraft of all types. I have been on the UK Show circuit for a number of years and look forward to highlighting some of the fantastic products that Aerobatx have to offer.

I have a range of Flex/rc factory models , most of which guided by savox servos, experience with the aura systems and kingtech turbines.I have been flying the Flex Innovations Ultimate for over a year now counting up hundreds of flights. The model is powered by a GP76, Falcon Propellor, Savox 1270TG servos along with an Aura 12 Pro. This combination has performed flawlessly and is highly recommended for the range of Flex 70cc models.

I was fortunate in that my grandfather was an aeromodeller, he got me into it as a child and we spent many happy times at the field. I had a fascination for aerobatic flight watching the precision expert's flying at the time, I knew my flying was to take that path and IMAC flying has been my thing over the years, it has been a great personal experience. I have been the UK national champion twice so far in both sequence and freestyle, which has been very rewarding. I use a wide range of excellent equipment, all available from AerobatX, including - Futaba radio systems, Desert Aircraft motors, GP and DLE engines, Savox servos and CLI servos, Mejzlik Propellers, Falcon Propellers and Powerbox for on board power distribution, Flex Innovations, Pilot RC and my own build 40% sequence models
