About Jessie: I have been involved in this hobby for nearly 6 years now and have loved every minute. When I started, I had an Align T-Rex 250 and no idea what I was doing. Through the years, I have owned almost every size heli and have flown both nitro and electric. My current fleet consists of a MSH Protos Max V2 and a Synergy N7. I would definitely consider myself an electric guy, but there’s nothing like a nitro. Nitro has soul!
Currently I live near Bellingham, WA with my amazing wife. One year ago I graduated from Washington State University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Currently I am working at an oil refinery as a piping and welding engineer. With a love for engineering, creating and tinkering this really is the perfect hobby for me. No matter how long I am in this hobby I am consistently learning and being challenged by the constant forward thinking this industry provides.
Currently in the hobby I am fling for the Mikado V team. Recently I reduced my number of sponsors as I really needed to just branch out and get back to having some fun! I consider myself a very active member of this hobby, so please don’t hesitate to message or email me with any question, as I love to help. You can reach me at “salmonson63” on all the forums or you can shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
