 The DiMaio family, Sam, Jackson, and Steve flew this BVM Bandit many times.  The brilliant Hi-Viz paint scheme is easy on the eyes against any sky. Spektrum radio and KingTech K70 engine provide the "Action".
 A Blue Angel scheme is always popular. Jack Karst from Grand Junction, CO. applied his talents to this BVM PNP 1:7.75 F-18 Hornet.
 This Ultra Bandit EVO is a new PNP product from BVM. Rob Lynch offered guest rides on the T-18 180 class engine powered prototype. Addision Jr. and Josh Clark enjoyed the ride.


More details on the T-18 soon.

 Not just another Albatross, this BVM 1:5th scale L-39 has earned a good reputation over the past few years for its flight and landing characteristics. BVM Reps, Brian Blois assisted Rob Skiba with this "Breitling" version.

 Early Bandits still show up in numbers because with a little T.L.C. they last. This example is enjoyed by Dave Fusinato from Squaw Valley, Calif. Dave's other entry was this 1/6 scale Skymaster F-16.
 Doug Cronkite is a long time BVM customer. Doug helped BVM's show effort by flying the companies latest "E" Jet. It's an EVO Bandit in Blue Angels paint and is powered by a BVM EVF 12S. Performance rivals its turbine counterpart.
  BVM Rep. Heraldo Diaz shared some F-16 fun with Jeff Lovitt. The 1/6th PNP in ThunderBird Livery is popular and shows well.
 Young Josh Clark and his dad Addision Jr. chose an AirForce Aggressor scheme for their 1/5 scale BVM PNP F-16.
 A nice display of some of the BVM F-16's at Best In The West 2018.

Airline pilot and expert model jet enthusiast, Steve Unze stopped by the BVM Booth and posed with pretty Patty.
 Californian Ravi Rafael did a fantastic job assembling and flying the BVM 84" Sabre jet.
 Tanner Pennington earned his "Turbine Waiver" with his brand new BVM Bandit EVO.
 Great photo of the DiMaio family after a test hop on the Ultra Bandit EVO.
 New Team Member Cole Thornton from Arizona, enjoyed flying the Bandit EVO. Cole did a great job helping at the show.
