One of my friend in the early 60's was living near Gem Suzor store in Auteuil but we were too intimidated to visit! Back then we were flying at Bagatelle just like Santos-Dumont many years earlier!
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.
