Have no idea but I read in the RC Universe rumor mill that they might be merging with another company.

Re: Dave Patrick Models???

I thought Cermark bought them out or a portion of them..I believe they were going to start releasing a model or two soon.

I may be wrong as usual though

Re: Dave Patrick Models???

Hi Everyone,

I want to personally clarify as best as I can of the DPM situation (Toledo show). We (Cermark) are currently working with Dave Patrick to bring DPM back into the market. We looked at several factors that we felt important to us, you and our industry;

1) Dave Patrick is a strong designer, and has given much to our industry
2) There are still much creative juices left in Dave Patrick
3) Cermark can help minimize some of the business logistic and vendor issues that DPM experienced previously.

So we are moving ahead in bring DPM back to our industry. We want to provide Dave as much resources as possible to allow him to focus on creative aspect of design, QC portion of production, and teaching portion of flying for DPM. As for service and logistics, we are in the process of setting up. Please give us approximately 30-40 days integrating telephone, email and website.

As for the DPM items, here are the plan;
a) Available now
MAX adhesive - made in USA, thin / medium / thick with special patented cap in 20g and 50g sizes
Ultra Tailwheel - Wire and Leaf style versions in small, medium and large sizes (with limited quantity on hand).

b) Available in 60 days
MAX adhesive - made in USA, thick foam safe CA in 20g and 50g sizes
MAX accelerator for CA

c) Availabe in 4-6 months
Super Piper Cub - Vero Beach version in yellow Ultracote

d) In discussion
Clipped Wing Piper Cub - with racing strips in white base Ultracote
Blue head engines

If you have any suggestion for me, you can email me directly at schao@cermark.com

This is what I found on another site. Cermark owns 33% of one of the bigger model manufacturers in China, so they have the resources to pull this off.... However, Cermark has not always followed their game plan in the past and have changed lanes, leaving business partners hanging.......
