Derek Piggott died recently at 96. he was a master pilot and model flier. You may not have heard of him, but he was one who inspired me in model flying.
A read through of his obituary will give an idea of his accomplishments and how much he contributed to aviation.

A true pioneer indeed. What a master aviator he was, right into his nineties! Amazing.

Thanks for posting, John.
