My Condolences,
a very Intelligent person, only too willing to share his knowledge with anyone who asked.

I know I've personally learnt allot from him.

Will be missed in the R/C community.

What a shock! What a loss!

Prayers for his family and friends, in this time of loss.

At a loss for words.

Man, that's a hard thing to hear. Like many others, I knew of him but never got the chance to meet him.

My Condolences,

I've butted heads with him, and shared laughs over the net for a few years now. This is shocking news. Our hobby has lost a great icon and a fountain of knowledge and character.

Jim, may you rest in peace up in the rc and corvette clouds.

My prayers for his family and friends in these times of mourning.

We'll miss you Jim, may you rest in peace.

My Condolences,

I only met him on the internet but right away got my first big win back in 2002, the Hong Kong International Challenge. (with Barry baker, Hara, Surikan, etc.) I listen to his setting advise and used the Drop he sent to me, I won that A main stock Class in style.

He was so willing to help you out.

Is sad to hear this.
We will miss you Jim.

Chris

The R/C community has lost one of it's best motorbuilders, designers, and information providers.......Many people including myself have him to thank for knowing what they know about electric motors over the years on his forums, he was one of the few that shared his vast knowledge simply for the love of the hobby, and asked nothing in return....RIP Jim

Rest In Peace Jim.
