Default Aircraft stolen at AMA scalemasters

This deserves more coverage: I'm posting it help Jeff and his DAD get his planes back...



THEFT ALERT: Two contest aircraft were stolen from a vehicle at the headquarters hotel in Hemet. My Kawasaki KI 61 fuselage and my Dad's Yak 18 Fuselage were stolen from our car. We were unable to continue the contest as a result of this malicious and horrible act.

The following was lost:

Yak 18P fuselage- red with white strips and star.
Airtronics Stylus radio in an aluminum transmitter case.
Custom Woodcraft flight box with usual assortment of tools.
Custom kavan starter with machined aluminum battery mount.
Assorted hand tools, power tools, makita drill, etc.
Alpha 4 charger
Airtronics servos/pcm receiver in airplane.

Kawasaki KI 61 fuselage. Green with white strips on fuselage, b-29 kill marks on the side. Red fin and stab.
Flight box with tools, accessories, etc.
Gene Barton Fuel station (red anodized) with power master fuel jub, sonic tronic fuel pump and a hobbico power panel.
Alpha 4 charger.
Scale spinner (brown in color)
Dremel moto tool, misc. tools.
Futaba Digital/Airtronics servos and Futaba G3 14 channel reciever in the plane.
Custom kavan starter with machined aluminum mount and 12 vlt gell cell battery (Similar to unit described above)

Sweet Stick complete.
OS 46 SF two stroke engine (side mounted).
Modified aircraft with nose wheel brake, wing with fowler flaps.
Aircraft finished in yellow and black bearing a resemblance to a bumble bee. Black bands on fuselage.
Airtronics radio gear- servos and pcm receiver.

If anyone who was at the Finals in Hemet, or in the course of their contact with others in the hobby comes across these items, please contact me. The aircraft were stolen during a competition for which they were built and represent an enormous commitment of time by myself and my dad. Any information related to these items would be greatly appreciated. Please see the two items below taken at the event for reference. Please spread the word. The individuals who did this may attempt to get money out of all or part of them. Your help is needed to help bring them back and prevent this from happening to someone else.

THANK YOU!

You may want to post this in the clubhouse forum where more people will see it, possibly in the warbirds forum also.

>>>Hemet ? Where is that <<<

Beaner town USA. Area has been invaded and taken over by the illegals. I moved away from there eight years ago because I was not allowed to fight back. I'm sure the individuals that stole the stuff will not put it on EBAY. They are too stupid to figure it out. Look for them to try to sell it at the local club fields

You forgot to mention about the Chineese toys in the AMA magazine.

Oh and if you are going to bust on our friends in the east, you should at least learn how to spell their nationality correctly. I'm sure they know how to spell Americans. This way, just in case our #1 importers are watching, they'll think American's are at least smart.
