The DiMaio family, Sam,
Jackson, and Steve flew this BVM Bandit many times.
The brilliant Hi-Viz paint scheme is easy on the eyes
against any sky. Spektrum radio and KingTech K70 engine
provide the "Action".
A Blue Angel scheme is always
popular. Jack Karst from Grand Junction, CO. applied his
talents to this BVM PNP 1:7.75 F-18 Hornet.
This Ultra Bandit EVO is a new
PNP product from BVM. Rob Lynch offered guest rides on
the T-18 180 class engine powered prototype. Addision
Jr. and Josh Clark enjoyed the ride.
More details on the T-18 soon.
Not just another Albatross,
this BVM 1:5th scale L-39 has earned a good reputation
over the past few years for its flight and landing
characteristics. BVM Reps, Brian Blois assisted Rob
Skiba with this "Breitling" version.
Early Bandits still show up in
numbers because with a little T.L.C. they last. This
example is enjoyed by Dave Fusinato from Squaw Valley,
Calif. Dave's other entry was this 1/6 scale Skymaster
Doug Cronkite is a long time
BVM customer. Doug helped BVM's show effort by flying
the companies latest "E" Jet. It's an EVO Bandit in Blue
Angels paint and is powered by a BVM EVF 12S.
Performance rivals its turbine counterpart.
BVM Rep. Heraldo Diaz shared
some F-16 fun with Jeff Lovitt. The 1/6th PNP in
ThunderBird Livery is popular and shows well.
Young Josh Clark and his dad
Addision Jr. chose an AirForce Aggressor scheme for
their 1/5 scale BVM PNP F-16.
A nice display of some of the
BVM F-16's at Best In The West 2018.
