Welcome back! The year is winding down and the holiday season is again upon us. It’s
a great time to ponder next year’s new
projects or maybe pick up a stocking
stuffer or two. Either way, have a
wonderful holiday season and a happy
and healthy new year.
This month I’m featuring a couple o
new offerings from Sullivan Products
that are especially suited for RC Giant .
Sullivan Products, located in
Baltimore, has manufactured high-quality RC products and accessories
for more than 50 years. Many of the
company’s products can be found in
our model aircraft. Sullivan Products is
proud to announce a joint partnership
with SuperDri, a leader in full-scale
aviation smoke fluid, to
produce SkySmoke. It is
Sullivan part number S760.
SkySmoke is 100%
paraffinic oil with no additives,
making it safe for all RC
materials, including glues,
foams, paints, and covering. It
is also safe for turbine engines.
Because it is paraffinic oil,
it’s environmentally safe
and there are no shipping
restrictions. Give it a try—
you’ll enjoy the full-scale
smoke pouring out of your
The second product is the
