Default Gil Losi Jr - Interview

In the middle of March the surprise announcement was made that Gil Losi Jr had left the company that bore his family name to go and head up the design team at competitors Kyosho America. Xtreme RC Magazine caught up with Gil shortly after the move to find out the real story behind the move and what lies ahead for him in his new position.

Probably becaus he was at Source when he got the link to RedRc.......


In any case very good interview, but I think many knew why he left. The thing is, as the hobby has grown so much, I didnt see Losi or any other companies do anything else but add other products.

Yeah, think this article sums up what most of us thought was happening with Team Losi.

He is my hero, I totaly agree with buying kits. I would rather put one together than even race the thing.

Yes it was...red Rc did source me and our page, but still used our content without permission (which I would have given) and took the content out of a pdf.
