Default Rest in peace, Mike Reedy

Just hearing news through that Mike Reedy has passed away. I think its a bit of an understatement to say that we have lost a legend in the electric RC world.

Sad to hear this. This guy was definitely a huge contribution to RC racing as we know it. What a loss.

This is sad and i hope that everyone remembers forever what Mike has done for the sport. Many people and companys are where they are today due to Mike's nature and success. Mike always had a great outlook on Rc and his good nature never went un noticed to me.

I had known Mike since the early 80s when he first came to the indoor champs. I knew he had been sick for a long time. May he rest in peace.
