Looking for information on Joe H. Maxwell
From:Rick Pangell

To all,Does anyone have any information on Joe H. Maxwell in Stirling, Scotland. He called his firm ” Aids for Advanced Aeromodelling”. Most people thought that he had several computerized machines to make his wonders in balsa, obeche and hardwood. But in 2001 he wrote a book, “the Secrets of Aids for Advanced Aeromodelling”, where he revealed that his main machine was just a radial arm saw, which he used very geniusly.

If so, please respond to me at ,
Thanks in advance

Kiwi Cup flyer
Below is the Kiwi Cup flyer for the FAI events at the Isaacson Winter Classic/Kiwi Cup.  The section for the AMA classes is undergoing final review and will be out shortly.   In the past as part of the AMA events we have had from time to time some special AMA events with large monetary prizes or that went over to the Monday.  There are no planned special AMA events like that this year but we do expect to have a choice of AMA events similar to previous years.
