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 If you are local or ever in the area, definitely get in touch with me…I love flying with new people, as we all have something we can learn.
