I have contacted one of the editors that I'm on a rules panel with, but he hasn't logged in either.

It's a terrible loss for his family, co-workers and the RC community if it is so.

I never met him but he seemed like a stand up guy. Watching his shows on DIY made me go out a buy my first nitro RTR a few years ago. My condolences go out to his family. He will surely be missed.

Man I remember reading his articles from back when I was in elementary school. And of course his DIY Program.


God Bless his family and close friends.

Rest In Peace Mr Chianelli.

I didn't know him personally but he was the magazine for years I associate him with RC Car from the first time I picked a magazine of Rc Car Action. His wacky pics and articles were always read at one point time or another I still have some of the classic mags.I feel a loss not to see him somewhere in the world doing something about RC's and putting it to pages for the world to read, Chris your tips have helped me in the past and currently you've made me think outside the box to better my cars. Thank you for your great services.

Man, that name brings back memories of my youth and early days in RC. Sad.

Rest in Peace Chris.

Same here. I remember reading his reviews as a kid in RC Car Action.
