The R/C racing industry has become what it is today because of the industry legends, innovators, and icons involved in it. Today we are sad to announce the industry has lost one of those great men, as the founder of Novarossi, Cesar Rossi, has passed away. Cesar was not only a micro engine specialist, but also an R/C airplane world champion, a watch maker, amateur photographer, and a father. Cesar Rossi will be missed by all, but his legacy will live on for many years to come.
