Bio: I have been in love with this awesome hobby since the age of 6 yrs old. Made my first successful flight around the age of 12. Doors started to open when I fell in love with the artwork of balsa scratch-building and received my first brushless power system for a 3D foamy. I attended my first indoor event when I met a talented pilot my age by the name of Matthew Stringer (below). Matthew helped me become more knowledgeable in the foamy and 3D area and I took off from there. After that, I started cutting, painting, failing, trying again, testing, designing and flying foamies. TAS Foamies took off at the RCX 2012 expo in Long Beach, CA in late April of that year. With the help of a bunch of friends and pilots and generous customers, I got my company rolling! I plan on marketing all kinds of crazy and affordable designs for sport and competition pilots (hint: and drivers) everywhere! I would not be where I am without the help of the Lord, my Mom and Dad, and some really great friends!

 Eric Torres
Age: 23
 
Bio: Got my first foamy when I was 16 and loved huckin' ever since. Been flying since I was 10. Met Tomas at a church jam session found out he flies too and the rest is history. I don't compete in any competitions,  more into it for the fun. Who knows, if all goes well, you might just see me out there.
