Scott Gray is among only a few in the world to compete, demonstrate and design radio control helicopters professionally. There are almost no limits for what radio controlled helicopters can do, and Scott has definitely mastered this unique skill.
Currently ranked Canada's number one helicopter pilot for more than 13 years in both precision FAI-F3C and 3D freestyle competitions, Scott focuses on competition in World Class events and helping others in the hobby. This sport leads to travels around the globe each year flying helicopters at contests, demonstrations and air show events. A seven-time World Championship competitor, he currently holds two silver medals for two consecutive World Championships held in Spain and Poland.
Other than competitive R/C flying, Scott has experience flying UAV helicopters and camera equipped, custom built helicopters for low-level aerial photography and HD video.
Scott was born into the world of aviation and thrived on his father's interest and knowledge in aircraft. By age four, his father Steve had taught him to fly radio controlled airplanes. His father's hobby store Flite Craft in Kitchener, Ontario Canada always kept Scott learning and focused on modeling. Building, designing and flying aircraft of all kinds has been his passion and profession. When not out flying, Scott spends time as a mechanical designer and consultant doing 3D CAD designs for medical, industrial, and r/c equipment.
Holding a commercial multi-engine pilot license, Scott enjoys flying full size airplanes. He is privileged to regularly fly several fully restored 1939 De Havilland Tiger Moth aircraft and be a part of the Tiger Boys Aircraft Works in Guelph, Ontario. This group of enthusiasts are always at work on various war-time vintage aircraft, restoring them to better-than-new condition.
His long history in aviation and design has led him to his latest project- a homebuilt Pitts M12, 400hp, two-place aerobatic bi-plane. Needless to say, his home now doubles as aircraft factory in both the garage, and basement.
Scott loves anything that flies, and hopes this web site is interesting and informative to any R/C enthusiast!
