Hello, my name is Jesse Allen and I'm proud to be a part of the Only Fine Heli's team. I'm from Marion Ohio and I have been flying RC for over 10 years, both airplane and helicopter. I love going to events and meeting new people and I love helping people learn to fly, building models, and helping others fix problems. I really love to night fly!
My heli of choice is Synergy and I fly Rail blades. I fly a Vbar control radio, BK and Xpert servos along with Scorpion power systems in most of my helis. The best thing I enjoy about this hobby is simply the people involved in it.
I’ve been in RC since I was a young child, mostly RC cars and boats. I started to get into aircraft (planes) as a teenager but I had a radio issue that lead to the loss of the entire aircraft. After that, I put the RC hobby aside for a while and enjoyed saltwater fishing. I bought a boat and spent lots of money on my fishing hobby. Many years later I moved to NJ and had to sell the boat in the process. Then I took up the hobby of RC helicopters and began spending lots of money on them. I am starting to see a pattern here. :-) Other hobbies I enjoy include amateur photography and home theater technology. I also co-host the RC Heli Hooligan Podcast with Walt Rager.
Originally from a little town in West Texas, I started into RC hobbies back in the mid-eighties racing Dumas Tunnel hull boats running K&B 3.5 nitro outboard motors. I was pretty active in the local area racing boats and fooling around with RC buggies until I moved to Marble Falls Texas in June of 94 when I had to take a short break.
In 2000 I purchased my first Real Flight simulator and in 2001 I purchased my first helicopter. It was a Lite Machine, Corona 150 - man this thing flew bad but fun. Things moved rather quickly progressing through several different models over the years. I ended up flying a Raptor 50 v2 nitro for several years learning how to fly. I now have several models to choose from and I am still learning. Eighteen years later and lots of crash’s later my passion for model helicopters is no less today than the first day I picked up my Corona 150.
My name is Mike Sobinovsky aka Mike Soby. I was born in August of 1988 and I have been in the hobby since 2012. I started into the hobby flying planes and then grew a new love for helicopter flying in 2015. Flying helicopters has become a passion of mine along with helping others start and grow in the hobby. I enjoy spreading my knowledge of the hobby to anyone willing to listen and learn. I am also my local clubs Safety Director and Event Coordinator. I spend most of my time flying on the weekends and when I am not flying I enjoy hunting and archery, as well as camping and being outdoors. If you see me at an event please come and say hi, I would be glad to meet you.
My name is Caleb Turner and I am 13 years old. When I was 8, my parents bought me a coaxial helicopter at CVS for Christmas that ended up not working (big surprise). After exchanging it and that one not working either, they took the money and went to a local hobby shop and bought a Blade mcx instead and the rest is history. I started flying collective pitch when I was 9 and now enjoy flying several different models with nitro being my favorite. When I’m not at an event helping Dad with the shop and flying, I enjoy hunting, fishing, playing with my cousins, music and church activities.
