Old Timer Models for sale from a SAM Champion.

Hi Tommy,
I imagine you know that I'm not going to fly R/C assist and am putting all my R/C Assist models up for sale. Love FF the best and will keep doing it until they close the box,
 
Won a lot of Texaco events at the Champs with this 96" Bomber.
Asking $ 900.00 or good offer
Engine alone worth $250.00. Reworked for the Texaco event.
 
BTW, all models have radios on 6 Meters. Have a few Transmitters for them too. All silk & dope and in pristine condition
 
The Lanzo Bomber 75"  w/Orwick 64: asking  750.00
 
The  Lanzo 60"  w/McCoy 29 Ign reworked by Bill schmidt: asking 600.00
 
Several others too.
Larry. Davidson













This is a difficult market today, but if anyone is willing to make the drive to Virginia, they won't find any better models.   Don't forget his store.   http://www.modelflight.com/larrydavidson.html

Airborne Magazine



I was at the AMA library a couple of weeks ago.  It looks like they may start handling the Airborne plans.  I have no idea what will happen to all the subscriptions that were renewed this year.   It looks like all we have left is The New Aeromodeller.

Don Broggini RIP




Hi Guys,
More bad news.
 
My life long dear friend and well known designer of many models, including "The Stardust Special" Has gone to the great flying field in heaven.
 
Below is an email I just received yesterday from Don's Daughter, Nancy Rodgers. I got a lump in my throat when I read this yesterday. We spent many hours together at my home  and on the phone. Don was just an amazing man.
 
He had three different engineering degrees and worked and retired from Grumman many years ago. When I asked Don any questions about aerodynamics or modeling in general he easily gave me the answer and reason for the answer in language I could understand but never talked down to me.
 
Don was one of the smartest men I've had the pleasure of calling him my friend. He will be sorely missed.
 
The two photo's were taken in my home many years ago.
 
The photo of the Stardust Special was the first Stardust Special that I built after the plans were approved by SAM. Silk & Dope (Of course).

Hi Larry,                                    1-10-17

It is with great sadness to tell you that my father passed away yesterday at his home in Centerport, NY. He had come home from rehab on November 30th and was being a total trooper trying to stay engaged and work hard. He got pneumonia, which has been a continuous battle, and just couldn't pull out of it this time. It has been a very difficult few months for him and we can all take solice in that he is now at peace and can be with my mom again. Thank you for always checking in on him and being such a good friend. He always spoke very fondly of you. I know he enjoyed your friendship as much as you did his. 

Regards,
Nancy Rodgers

Tom: The Snooty in the Outer Zone photos is mine. My 7 year old Bugaboo is currently testing Bobby Lang's Pesky and has one channel with a Bonner SN escapement and a homemade 2.4 Ghz TX that I made to look like a 1957 Citizenship hand held.  Flies GREAT!
