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 with over 20 years of experience, Scott has mastered this unique skill.

Currently ranked Canada’s number one helicopter pilot for more than 16 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 in over 15 countries.  A 9-time World Championship competitor, he currently holds three silver medals for three consecutive World Championships held in Spain and Poland, and USA.

Other than competitive R/C flying, Scott also has experience flying UAV helicopters and camera equipped, custom built helicopters for low-level aerial photography and HD video.

Born into the world of aviation, Scott 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 high tech medical, industrial, and r/c equipment.

Scott holds a commercial multi-engine pilot license and enjoys flying full size airplanes. Most recently, Scott has been taking up aerobatics in his Pitts Special S1T airplane.  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.  His long history in aviation and design has led him to his latest project- a homebuilt Pitts M12, 400hp, two-place aerobatic bi-plane.  A work in progress, he hopes it will fly in a few years time.

Scott enjoys anything that flies, and hopes this web site is interesting and informative to any R/C enthusiast!
