Designer Michael Vollmer Leaves Durango

The main designer at Durango, Michael Vollmer, has decided to say his goodbyes to the company after nearly 3 years. He, along with

Vollmer

Gerd Strenge created the DEX410 and DNX408 and is definitely talented. He stated that he was not happy with the compromises he had to make as a designer and with his work and decided to take his talent elsewhere. He will now concentrate on working with other companies through his design company Revolution Design. Michael released the following statement:

“After nearly 3 years of collaboration with Team Durango, which was founded by Gerd Strenge and I, I feel the time is now right to search for a new challenge. Having designed the most innovative 4WD electric Off Road car on the market, the most innovative nitro Off Road car on the market and the no less innovative future projects for Team Durango, the differences of opinion between myself as a designer and the Team Durango management has become to great to continue. As a designer you always have to make compromises between what you as a designer want and what the company require, which is normal in business. But now I feel that I am having to make too many concessions for me to be happy with my projects. Its a shame to leave as I will lose some of the nicest colleagues a man could wish for. Also I wish my friend Gerd all the best for the future. Now I feel is the time to to create something new. I will continue my work through my design office Revolution Design located in Hamburg/Germany and I am looking to work with RC companies on any RC relevant projects where the client is looking for innovative, stylish and creative design.”
