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!

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.
Part of Scale competition flying is a down and dirty "Slow Fly-By".

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.

Dear Patty and BVM team,
Thank you for all your help and for making such a great airplane like the new ARF F-86. The maiden went great and the jet looks, and flies awesome! Here's a pic on maiden day!

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.

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 ....

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.
