About Practicalrc

Practicalrc was formed by Jonathan Wells a young RC enthusiast turned entrepreneur.

 

Who is “Jonathan Wells”

 

As a youngster (at 12 years old) Jonathan designed and built his own design RC hovercrafts and worked his way up to designing RC gliders.  Jonathan has been F3J National Champion and holds many DS speed records.  Jonathan has flown a Dynamic 60 to 309 mph in only 40 mph wind and flown a Dynamic 40 to 257 mph but hasn't had the chance to push for a higher speed just yet, he doesn't need the high end big DS gliders to do 300 mph. Jonathan has designed and built the Savage and Reflex 30 inch DS gliders and has flown them to 235 mph and 211 mph.  Jonathan currently has the UK record at a speed of 368mph.  Jonathan designs and makes his own composite models.  Jonathan currently has 23 years of modelling experience (as of this year 2021), flying Radio Controlled helicopters, gliders, competing in F3J/F3B, some F3F and Dynamic Soaring,

 

Jonathan can design an RC Glider from scratch, draw the design in CAD, machine the tooling on his own CNC machine, hand make e.g.: as positive fuselage plug (tooling), hand polish the tooling and even making the final composite moulded part/rc glider and then fly the glider to its absolute limit.

Jonathan has been interested in electronics from a very young age and now makes his own electronic products.

Taking a Leap!

I have taken a huge leap relocating form a 3x3 metre shed in Greater Manchester to Bideford/Devon in an industrial unit.
