Dub is still building his famous engines. He is building me a rear exhaust 50 now. Send him an email at jett2008@jettengineering.com and he will get back to you. Give him a little while, he is a small operation and sometimes takes a day to respond.

But when the site goes down it gets scary. According to his facebook page he is alive and kicking and had a birthday party on or about June 21.

I just received word from Marion Jett that they were victoms of a major hacking attack. Theirs and many other websites were attacked and theirs will likely be down for a while. The business is still going.

That's good news. They've had hacker troubles a few times I think.

Who would target a toy engine builder..?
Does Hobby King have a sabotage department to harass their competitors..?

I think it was a mass attack. The email I received from Marion stated that thousands of websites were targeted.
So if they do, it is a pretty large sabotage department....

This reminds me of stories about tire stores hiring people to drive around tossing nails and screws onto the roads.
If you sell internet security products, guess how to speed up sluggish sales of your products...?

Hi Friends..

Sorry I have not been around here for a while ... job had me prioritized mostly. And I was not getting my email notifications from here.

Yes, we had a fun time with the server takeovers a few weeks back . I had 5 different sites go down on me. But we got them restored.

Anyway... if need be you can contact me at bob27s@hotmail.com or also at rjbrassell@gmail.com

Use to be a pic of me in there somewhere.. Still there and the F-20 is alive an well. (14 yrs old now). Damn I'm good! If you scroll further down, my larger gray F20 which met its fate on the maiden but was a very impressive ending. One other point of interest here is my little buddy Fredo in the background. He is now 19 yrs old!!!!

The gray Cermark as I recall took off great. Flew it around for a while trimming it out. Jett .90 sound was awesome. Everything was looking good and time for the high speed pass. Went way out and way up. Got turned around and in came at abut a 45 degree angle. That sucker was movin!. Time to level off and at that moment we all heard the flutter and went in at the 45 spreading itself all over the place.
