USA's first all electric jet event was hosted by the T.O.R.K.S club September 19-21 at their Field of Dreams.  The weather was as perfect as the facility allowing us the ultimate opportunity to exercise our EVF Jets.

BVM is very grateful to the Torks Club and Terry Nitsch who inspired this "First" of many to come electric jet rallies.

Mike Knes and Enrico Traby traveled from Austria to be part of this inaugural event.  Rico's EVF 5012 powered Electra was seen scorching the skies on many flights.  He is very pleased with the performance and will campaign our products in Europe as our newest in-the-field representative.  He can be reached at:
Dave Malchione (BVM Rep) is very active in EVF propulsion and joined BV for a "Flight of Two" demo with the Sabre jets.  Both the "Blue Impulse" and Utah Target Tow paint scheme will be available in ARF format soon.  These Sabre's are 12s powered and utilize the new full flow Sabre inlet duct.

A 4012 EVF powers the "Impulse", while the new 5212 EVF poweres BV's "Utah".  Dave's Sabre won Best Finish Award.

Bob Fiorenze now has 2 Electra's built from kits.  This red Aggressor type scheme is representative of what a real modeler can accomplish.  It is adorned with lots of Promark "Raised Panels", nomenclature and graphics applied to the perfectly polished paint.

Even though his new #2 was on its first outing, Bob thrilled the crowd with some super low, high speed passes.

New to jets, but a very experienced 3D and pylon pilot, 19 year old Matt Fehling flies the 12s powered factory demo Electra in a very precise and expressive manner.  Matt attends the University of Central Florida and works part time at BVM.  He will join our on-the-road team as much as school allows.
Chris True's Electra (built from a kit) is getting some mileage on it.  Chris presents it very well with an efficient energy management routine.  His years of E.D.F. pioneering have been very helpful to many of us.
BV holds the EVF, the heart of the power system for all of these BVM Jets that flew at "E Jets".
The Twin EVF 4010 powered BVM Phantom won the "Best of Show" award for its noontime demo flights.  Our thanks to "Hobby Lobby International" for sponsoring the award.

Curtis Mattikow attended E-Jets volunteering his time to help things happen.  We thank Curtis for passing along these photos of the BVM Jets "In-Action".
