I never met Mike personally, but he had helped me on more than one occasion with advice and wisdom!  I doubt that there are very many people  that have been here on RCU for any length of time that didn't benefit from his knowledge and wisdom..  

Thank you, Mike!!

Craig..

Minnflyer helped me with many questions and gave me great advice. I have already expressed my condolences in a different thread, however I will add mine here as well. There are two types of people in this world, the givers and the takers, Minnflyer was a giver. He will be missed.

This news of Mike's passing hit's me like a rock, I had no idea of his death until I read this thread.
While one wants to think a person is better off, we still can't help but miss them and the knowledge they shared. I myself never had the chance to meet mike in person but we did talk several times mainly about the Ultra Sport aircraft. He will be missed by many, I feel terrible for not knowing about this sooner but I hope the family will accept my deepest condolences.
Richard.

Was looking for some basic construction info today, and ran across some of Minnflyers' suggestions. How time flies. His knowledge lives on in these threads...

I can honestly say that Minnflyers videos on how to cover an airplane saved my bacon on my first few builds. His contributions to our hobby will always be appreciated.

Mike left to much good will behind to be forgotten.
By the way, any chance he took the 310 with him? I have lost a couple in the family that had some prize possessions that could not be found and I have always wondered if it was possible that they took them with them.

Mike and I formed a very special bond, it was almost like we were brothers (like there weren't already enough Buzzeo's running around!!!). It is such a loss that Mike it gone, that's for sure. Jim and I went and cleaned out Mike's shop and all his RC stuff after Toledo this year, and it was really hard for both of us to be dealing with. There were times that we would simply stop and just think about how much we missed Mike.

And yes, the mystery of the missing 310. If that is ever solved I surely want to know that answer!!!!!!!
