Default Silent Engines

I am sorry to report that one of the great people in our sport/hobby has passed on. John Brodbeck Sr., the "B" in K&B had passed away on Tuesday at the age of 91. Anyone that has been in R/C boating for as many years as I have owned at one time or another a K&B engine. They might not have been the fastest, but one that you knew that would finish a race and own an engine that you could always get parts for.
In days like this with Corporations and faceless people behind them, we had a Pioneer that put his name on his product.
I've never had the pleasure of meeting John but he will be missed.

A loss to the world of R/C, but the legacy left behind will support the good name!
