About Myself

       Hello, my name is Don Giandomenico and I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I am an IBEW electrician, originally from Southern California, who enjoys all things technical. From as early as I can remember I have been taking apart engines, machines and electronics surplus to see how they tick. This “reverse-engineering” style of learning has been the basis for my “technical education”.
       My father was a mechanical engineer for the aerospace industry which initially sparked my interest in aircraft and jet propulsion. In fact my original goal in life was to be a mechanical engineer but I never quite made it to college to land an engineering degree. I did however manage to get a few years in of jr. college studying cinematography which has also been one of my many passions.
       At the age of 22 I was accepted into the
IBEW Union Electrician apprenticeship program where I learned my trade. For the next 28 years I worked on industrial-commercial electrical work in California as a foreman electrician. At the age of 50 I moved my family to Tennessee for a change of pace where I landed a building maintenance lead technician job at General Motors Spring Hill manufacturing plant.
       In my spare time I love to design and build all kinds of things from
model airplanes to experimental gas turbine engines. I love anything that has gears, motors or wires which is the primary reason I published RCDON.COM in 2003. This web page has been a great way to share these hobbies with others and hopefully inspire some of them to adventure into their own projects.
       When I am not working in the shop I am spending time with my beautiful wife Stacy and my two children Amelia and Vincent. We always manage to have a good time together and I always enjoy sharing my projects with the kids. With the unrelenting support of my family I will continue to learn about the technical sciences and hopefully be able to share my findings with the internet community.
       For now I really enjoy building and flying model airplanes as my primary hobby. I have learned a great deal about aerodynamics and fabrication design from building model aircraft. I have also managed to merge my love for film making into the hobby by producing
aerial videos. All in all it is a great hobby and I hope I can share some of the interest through this website.
       I thank God for the many blessings he has given me especially for my salvation through his son Jesus Christ. I am humbled by God’s grace and mercy and I am always mindful that all of my accomplishments are made possible by God. May God bless you and yours !!!

Take care my friends....
