Death in the helicopter family.

Posted 02-11-2010 at 05:39 PM by WillJames

I got this info from Matt Botos personal website with his permission. HF condolences go out to all involved and the family of Stephen.

On Saturday January 30th, Stephen Fan died in a tragic race car accident. Most of you may ask, “Who is Stephen Fan?” Stephen Fan was once heavily involved in the radio controlled helicopter community, he started Cyberheli which is an online hobby shop based in Hong Kong. He was also the owner of TJSL R/C in Hong Kong which provided Synergy R/C its helicopter kits and parts. In the most recent years Stephens interests and passion moved from R/C Helicopters to competitively racing cars. Stephen Fan was a good friend, and will be greatly missed.
To the loyal customers of Synergy R/C -
Over the last week, Todd Bennett and I have been working hard to sort financial matters with TJSL R/C. The last status on the N5 was that 500 kits were being boxed, and contents checked against the manual. Stephens death obviously affects the release of the N5 but to what extent I am unsure. Todd and I will do our best to keep you informed as these matters unfold. Both Todd and myself are very passionate about the future of Synergy Helicopters. We will do our best to keep Synergy designs and manufacturing moving forward. Thank you for being patient.

    Man that's sad. I just ran across this here on HF. I had some interactions with Stephen several years ago. A super nice guy and did his best to be helpful every time. Hope he went happy doing what he enjoyed.
