Sad news
Just got word that Joe Howard has passed away. Joe has been a huge contributor to the hobby with his knowledge and skill particularly with scale helis and the distribution and customer service and support of the Vario line of helis as well as an all around great guy. Rest In Peace Joe, you will be sadly missed.

Joe taught me so much over the years about flying Vario helis. His passing is a great loss to the RC Heli community. You will be missed my friend.

As good a friend as anyone could hope for. I have three machines that Joe built or had some part in. Like everything Joe did these are perfect and beautiful. I can't look at them and not think of Joe. Rest in peace my friend.
