Shoot, and for the last year and a half I had thought they were out of business. Hope I was wrong.

Accoding to reports from Toledo this year, Cermark is going to offer the DPM Cubs in both
standard and clipped wing. There is/was a post on that subject earlier.

One could use the "search function" and find it - and the numerous other posts and discussions
regarding Dave Patrick since he and his company have been cussed and discussed in detail
here on RCU for quite some time.

Hi Everyone,

I want to personally clarify as best as I can with DPM situation. We (Cermark) are currently working with Dave Patrick to bring DPM back into the market. We looked at several factors that we felt important to us, you and our industry
1) Dave Patrick is a strong designer, and has given much to our industry
2) There are still much creative juices left in Dave Patrick
3) Cermark can help minimize some of the business logistic and vendor issues that DPM experienced previously.

So we are moving ahead in bring DPM back to our industry. We want to provide Dave as much resources as possible to allow him to focus on creative aspect of design, QC portion of production, and teaching portion of flying for DPM . As for service and logistics, we are in the process of setting up. Please give us approximately 30-40 days integrating telephone, email and website. A couple of issues discussed on this thread: parts will be limited, because we don't have anything. Secondly we will try our best to make a few parts available, however they may not be the exactly the same as the original (mold issues).

As for the DPM items, here are the plan
a) Available now
MAX adhesive - made in USA, thin / medium / thick with special patented cap in 20g and 50g sizes
Ultra Tailwheel - Wire and Leaf style versions in small, medium and large sizes (with limited quantity on hand).

b) Available in 60 days
MAX adhesive - made in USA, thick foam safe CA in 20g and 50g sizes
MAX accelerator for CA

c) Availabe in 4-6 months
Super Piper Cub - Vero Beach version in yellow Ultracote

d) In discussion
Clipped Wing Piper Cub - with racing strips in white base Ultracote
Blue head engines

If you have any suggestion for me, you can email me directly at schao@cermark.com

Peace,
Steven Chao,
CERMARK

Steve,

It's great to hear that DP will be able to keep designing for the industry. His work has been experienced by many modelers for decades without them being aware of it. Carl Goldberg would have never had their Ultimate without him, along with many other excellent flying aircraft. Thanks for helping out and lifting some of the pressures that interfered with his continued success. We will all benefit from your decisions. It could be worth looking at his large Edge design to determine if the market can support it.

They are available through CERMARK or your local hobby shop. If you let us know which area, then we can better direct you.
