BVM Models
Yesterday, the founder of BVM, Bob Violett left us. As a very young modeler I remember the achievements of the Pylon racing team of Cliff Telford and Bob Violett. Telford & Violett were a tour de force back in the 70's. There was hardly an issue of MAN, RC Speed and Sport that didn't feature this team. That was just the start. Bob went on as one of the pioneers of Ducted fan modeling and later turbine model development. He was a real inspiration for a young modeler. Later after retiring from the Navy and Eastern airlines he formed BVM.

Bob is an AMA Hall of Fame member. https://www.modelaircraft.org/sites...ttRobertBob.pdf

Life goes on.

I flew his products for many years. He was a man that loved this hobby. They say chose a job you enjoy and you will never work a day in your life. BV was the epitome of this phrase. This hobby is going to miss him they broke the mold.

Thanks for sharing Terry. BVM was always on my wish list as premiere products. Never met the man but knew him by regarded reputation.

Very sad
Thanks for the update, Terry. Bob was a huge part of the RC hobby. That's a huge loss.
