Default Leaving HPI/HB

Hi All,
Well after 7 years at HPI/HB I am moving on to pastures new from 29th June.

I'd like to thank everyone at HPI/HB Europe USA and JP for their support over the last 7 years.

I'll still pop in from time to time on the HPI/HB forum here on oOple if anyone has any questions feel free to ask, I won't say no.

I'll still be running the Cyber 10B this weekend for it's last outing before it becomes a shelf queen alongside my D4WCE.

I wish all you guys on here the best with your racing.

Good Luck

Adam Skelding

Good luck mate, I think you've done a great job at HPI/HB and it's just a shame we never got to see the car you designed make production

I was sorry that the D2 didn't make production too, I was fully intending on running one when I left X-factory. I could see the amount of work you had put in to it, it looked fantastic. Whoever has the prototypes better keep them safe - they ought to be worth a tidy few quid quite quickly!!!

A massive good luck with you new ventures mate!

Good luck with the career change mate and all the best for the future.
Surely you have a d2 on the shelf also. Does this mean the edit brand will be missing your services too?

Anyone else think that HPI/HB are having a bit of trouble at the mo, the D2 disappearing, and they let Surikarn C and Ronald Volker go from the TC side of things, and now Adam going... just sounds a bit weird to me!

D2 on the Shelf....
Hmmm, Yes I do. They'd need a small army to remove that from my shelf

Edit brand will now be run from HPI alongside HPI/HB/Maverick/Merlin

I'll still be trackside, just working for another RC manufacturer (& marshalling your car of course )

I'll pop up somewhere else on oOple.
