WOW!

Talk about a move from left-field!

Never saw it coming but my best wishes go out to all of those involved... Kyosho, Jr, and Horizon/Losi!

I've known and worked with Gil over the years helping out with various Losi projects and he always had a fresh and interesting perspective to bring to problem solving!

I'm sure that this style of innovation will continue to bring new ideas to RC... no matter what company he is working with!

Good luck Jr!

Wow. Kyosho pulled out the BIG check book.
Looks like Gil has the last laugh. Horizon won't drop the Losi name.
Good luck to all parties.

Well, I am sure that Team Losi will eventually be nothing more than a glorified version of sportwerks. That has to excite all you Losi owners. HAHAHAHA
I think Gil recognized the plane was going down and grabbed his parachute and jumped.

Great aquisition for Kyosho in this industry there are those that critique and those that produce and Jr. is definately one of the producers.

Good luck to you Gil Jr. and many more successes in your career.

I can't help but wonder if the handling of our Type-R and its delays were the straw that broke Jr.'s back?

Please excuse me while I lower my Team Losi banner to half mast.

Your taking this pretty hard POOKYT. Come on buddy buck up! It'll be okay...

Of course I don't know that for sure, but I gotta tell you something to pull you outta your depression.

Come on you made it through not one, but TWO JRX-S delays, and somehow managed to stay positive. If you can make through that, you'll pull through this just fine.

Does sound wierd though...Team Losi with no...ummm....Losi.
