If you search Slotblog there was quite a lot of discussion about it at the time of his passing. 

 

If you google his name he was quite a force in stunt R/C planes in his post slot racing life.  Made several innovations in that hobby which is no surprise.  I met him a couple of times or at least once at Parma Raceway..  Very interesting guy and a legend in the slot racing armature arena.

They say Jim was even better with planes than slot cars. Great guy.
