Sorry to cross post a link here, but don't know how many have heard this bad news - especially for big gas engine fans of Zenoahs and the like.
It concerns Dick Bennett of B&B Specialities - the spring starter etc., etc., innovator - and reports on his motorcycle tragedy.

He'll be much missed.

Re: Sad News of Dick Bennett

He also pioneered the first glass-filled (non metalic) mechanical retracts. At least that is what I was told way-back-when.

My first set of reliable mechanical retracts was a B&B- I bought it from Dick in Toledo.

He and his contributions to the RC world will be missed
