I bought model material and engines from "La Source" as we called it. I remember buying a ready-to-fly controliner made of (ABS?) plastic and powered with a Dynamic 1,5 cm3, in the late 50's. I never visited the Gem Suzor shop either. Why ? I don't really know. Never flew at Bagatelle, but did fly at Vincennes.
