This just in from Horizon Hobby:

Happy Wednesday everyone! We have some news to share with you regarding our own John Redman. We are sad to inform you that John will be leaving Horizon Hobby on July 5th as he takes his next steps in the RC Industry. John is returning to California and has purchased JetCat USA and Composite Structures Technology. When asked about his move John had the following to share:

"The past 8 years at Horizon have been a great ride. Over 5 years in Product Development with the Air Division and the rest here in the Online Division to help my fellow modeling buddies have greater success in their hobby. Dealing with "the Car Guy" has been a bit tough at times, but a blast none the less. I am not gone and will still be a big part of the industry. I look forward to seeing some of you on the flying circuit in the future. As some would say “good-bye” I will say “see you later”. This is not a good bye but a new direction in the industry for me as I take over the reins of two great companies. So as you know me and Mia from our videos I will say one last time . . . “until next time, we’ll see you at the flying field”.

On behalf of everyone at Horizon Hobby we'd like to thank John for his service and the fun he has brought us and wish him all the best of luck in his future endeavors. You'll want to make sure you check out this week's episode of the R/Cast, John's last on the show, which will debut later this week. John goes into details on his future and sends you all his best in his own words.

Rodger, I see where you used to fly with and knew Bob Somanski? When I was at Edwards in the 70's and 80's I used to fly with Bob. I remember his ICDF powered U-2. I always enjoyed being around Bob as he was a very nice and kind guy. When did he pass?
