EDF Jet Jam Award Winner!

Congratulations Terry Nitsch on winning the "Best Scale Jet Performance" with his BVM F-86 Sabre Jet.



First Place at the "Central Ohio Scale Classic" event in Centerburg, Ohio is another recent accomplishment by Terry and Shiela Nitsch.


The paint scheme is that of astronaut Frank Borman's personal airplane that can be seen at Luke A.F.B. The model started as a plain grey BVM ARF 63" model and Terry applied the paint and details.

It is powered with a BVM EVF ~3~ 12S 9 blade fan and is very fast. 7-8 minute flights with top end speeds of 170mph are standard, allowing Terry to post multiple 97+ point flight scores. The external wing tank jettison maneuver is good for 10 points every time.



Mike Constantine is a member of the jet friendly R.C.A.C.F. (Radio Control Club of Central Florida). He enjoys showing and flying his BVM Sabre ARF (63") with EVF ~2~ 10S power. Mike flies competition pattern and thus his "precision flying skills" make the Sabre look good!

Great Pilot - Great Machine

 BVM, two for two with the new E-MiG. Won the champions Class and Pilots Choice at the Bob Evans scale event last weekend. First event with this model off grass and it performed beautifully. Event CD Bill Carper who is who is a Top Gun scale modeler himself said that if the MiG was a violin it would be a Stradivarius! Quite the compliment.

Hello BVM Staff, we were fortunate again  in winning the Scale Open class at this year’s AMA National Championships. It was a pleasure representing BVM Jets, Horizon Hobbies, and Thunder Power R/C. The new E-Mig flew beautifully and the performance of the EVF ~3~14S was amazing. After each six and one half to seven minute competition flights, there was at least thirty percent of capacity remaining in the TP 14S7700 battery packs. The balance of power and weight are perfect. Thanks for the support and the great products.

Terry continues his winning ways with BVM products.  This model started as an all Aluminum Sabre ARF.  Terry applied the skin details, paint scheme, and ProMark graphics.  An EVF ~3~ 12s and ThunderPower LiPo's provide the thrust.  Terry provides the expert guidance through his JR 12X, while Shiela contributes coaching and maneuver calling as she has for many years.
A tough team to beat!

  5 flights on the 10s Sabre and all I can say is WOW! It flies like my Bandit. Plenty of power, the verticle is amazing, yet true and pure with no bad habits. I can hardly beleive it's electric. Amazing finish for an ARF, I doubt there are many builders who could do better.. A special thanks to Tommy Wood Jr for building it to perfection and on time.. Trust me on this, I would not hesitate to have Tommy build, or fly, anything of mine. Again BVM has a home run with this one.. Thanks for all the hard work everyone at BVM does to make sure that the end product is the best there is..

Hi Patty:

      Here is a photo taken by Ken Simmons, of  Ron Derhacopian's China Lake with my PAX River scheme. I have 10 flights on mine, and Ron made the maiden flight on his the day the photo was taken. We are both thrilled with the quality of the kits. The performance and simplicity of the EVF system is very impressive.  

Best wishes
Gregg Fullington

HI Guy´s !

I just wanted to let you know that  I finally completed 2 successful flights on my Fury AFS Version yesterday. The plane was bought almost 2 years ago but for the old Viofan 91 combo which was converted to the EVF system . Having a short grass strip pushed my adrenalin but everything went perfect. Complete package with EVF 5612 12s TP6400, old style wheels and brakes. The Fury performed very well even with no gear doors which I want to retrofit now. The sound with the new intake is just incredible .... I had a real big smile after the first flight which just took 3500 mAh after 4 min of flight. Second flight was 5:30 where I was much  more relaxed. I just can say I love the Fury the paint scheme and the flying characteristics ....

Bob, Patty and Staff,
 Just a quick picture of my Sabre with a 5212 fan and TP 40c 12s batts. Mucho thrust. Took the 20 year old kit and did a major up-grade. Now plug-in wings, beefed up tail, landing gear plates etc. Brought back memories of pre- ARF days! Lots of work but well worth it. Thanks for your support in getting me updated parts.

   I thought I would send you a few pictures of my new EVF powered AFS F-86 Sabre. It was flown for the first time two weeks ago and flew great!

   The F-86 was a long term project and it was worth the wait. With the simplicity of the EVF, I am glad I converted it to electric. I also would like to thank BVM Field Rep Dave Malchione for all his help, technical assistance, and performing the test flight. It has been a great experience. I have already ordered an Electra Jet for my next project. Hope to see you at a jet rally next year.

Thank you,
Mike Cramer
