Vale Jason Rowe

Jason Rowe unexpectedly departed this life on the 19 June 2014.  For those that didn’t know him he was highly intelligent and a very capable heli builder.  He pioneered quad copters before they were popular, a very accomplished pilot and a great asset to the R/C helicopter community and the MRCHC Club.  He was always quick with a joke with a happy and positive outlook on life, always cheered you up, and would offer his help and knowledge to anyone that needed it.  Our sincerest sympathies go to his family and close friends at this time.
