Dean Sabawo

1) Where are you from and how did you get into the hobby?

"I'm from Melbourne, Australia and I started getting into flying RC places as a teenager."

2) What’s the story behind your RC model and the crash?

"The Durafly Vampire was my first ever RC jet so I was super excited. I had a successful take-off and flew around for about a minute before I started getting too comfortable and did a slow sharp turn which stalled the plane and crashed it pretty hard. I took it home and immediately ordered another one haha. "

3) What's your favorite RC model and why?

"So far, probably the EFXtra Racer. So fun to fly and so fast, sounds amazing and looks so good. Great plane - highly recommend!"

4) What is the best part of being an RC pilot and why?

"It's a challenging and high-stakes hobby, so when you have a good flight it feels very rewarding, and it's extremely peaceful."
