Welcome to Plane Time!

I’m Tim the Planeman

I’m exploring the world of model aeronautics, from balsa scale models, to autonomous flight with ArduPilot, FPV (First Person View) flying. This website includes a blog, documentation of my plane builds and links to my YouTube channel and Facebook page.

You can also buy Tim The Planeman merchandise, and resell selected high quality products that I have tried and tested myself.

Early on

I started building balsa model planes almost 40 years ago, but then … life happened.


In 2021 I started with a rubber powered Spitfire balsa model and caught the bug again. Now I’m building and flying radio controlled models and exploring flight controllers and autopilots and sharing it all on YouTube. There is so much to learn.
