Hello, my name is Kelly McElderry. I am from Kansas and am married to my best friend, Cody. I met my husband 4 years ago and he introduced me to his passion, the RC hobby. I instantly fell in love with it too. When you and your spouse have the same passion and interests it becomes an addiction! He has taught me everything I know, from building and flying scale RC planes to building and maintaining an insane RC crawler!
The RC hobby is so much more than going out and playing with some toys. The extra personal details in a build, the strategies to get through a course, it all adds to the joy and pride of the hobby. Everyone needs some type of release in life, to unwind from a busy day or clear a racing mind, this hobby is that for me. Plus, the jumping and air first pumps when I conquer something makes it that much more fun! Cody and I are always trying to bring new people into the hobby. It never fails, when we pass our controller to someone for the first time and they get to tear through a track full throttle or flex over an obstacle their faces light up and are hooked. How can you pass on something that brings the kid in you out!
