Hi Heather:

 Here is a photo of Dave Shoffner with his new MiG 15.

He had a very successful maiden Aug 23. I had the pleasure to assist him with the JR12X set up and his first two flights.

It's powered by the EVF ~3~ 12S and TP 7700's. He also has the servo driven speed brakes and the scale main struts.

Thanks
Gregg Fullington


Bob, Dustin,

Last weekend we had the scale masters qualifiers at our field in California. I entered two categories: Pro am pro with the demo Fury and Advanced with my F100F.  I won both!!! People were super impressed with the Fury. No one was expecting that an EDF could compete in a scale event. But as always, lots of practice, and being comfortable with the typical cross winds you find in any contest, paid out at the end. This year we are having the Scale Masters finals at my local field, so I will be competing.  Need to decide if I will do Pro Am pro or Advanced. So, as always, BVM jets are at the top of all the scale events. Thanks for your for all you do to keep us flying (and winning!!!)

The EVO 12s 6400 2p matched cell battery set that Rob Lynch is holding now has 119 cycles in this Electra ARF and is still going strong.

His choreographed aerobatic flight routine is 6 1/2 minutes long and the end of flight battery temps and volts are all in the "normal" range.

Rob flies on Sundays and Wednesdays every week in the Fort Lauderdale area.  He is the busiest and best jet flyer we know!

Rob Lynch also debuted his Ultra Bandit at the RCACF field 15 Sept 08.  He guides the JetCat P-180 powered machine with a JR DSM 12X.  All of the systems functioned flawlessly.
So much of Rob's flight routine is inverted that perhaps the lettering on the cockpit rail is proper.

Patty, Bob, & Dustin
Just got back from the field here in Puerto Rico.  I will tell you it feels great giving new life to a 15 year old plane !

Wow,  what a performance ! My Maverick is a new plane. It flew great. I followed  the instructions and with the support of the BVM team you can only expect great results.

I am in the process of placing the Mav in the shipping box. I am going to WINIMAC ! Jets over the Heartland with my new ELECTRIC JET ! Nothing but spectacular !

Gracias Amigo !

Joe Dwek lives in Brussels, Belgium and is an avid E.D.F. enthusiast.  He is modifying this Aggressor II to house a BVM EVF 4010.


Here is the F-80 on the fly by at the Joe Nall '08 event.  We fly a few laps with the tanks on, then Jettison them for high speed passes.


Kent Nogy flew the brand new F-80 at Top Gun in the Pro Am class.  The 5 1/2 minute competition flights consumed one half of the 6400 mah capacity.

The power unit is the EVF 6215 with (3) Flight Power EVO 30c 5s 2p 6400 mah matched Saddle Cells.

The Misawa wing tip tanks are jettisoned early in the flight for a scored maneuver.  The airframe is then extremely "slippery" and consumes minimum amperage to cruise between maneuvers.  It is amusing that one of the flight judges downgraded the Fast Fly-By maneuver as being too fast.

The A.F.S. (Advanced Fabrication System) kit has been extensively modified for EVF power.


Dan Johnson applied this brilliant scheme to an early Sabre that is now powered by an EVF 4010 with EVO 10S 6400 mah Saddle Cells.

Here is photo of P-80 I converted to electric using Bob's new EVF fan. Test flew it this Saturday at Sandusky Michigan and It flies better than when it was glow!
