A remarkable correlation is found in radio-loud quasars and BLLacs when the directly observed angular motions, u, of features ejected in the innermost regions of their jets are plotted on logarithmic scales versus the directly observed 15 GHz flux density, S, of their central engines: an abrupt upper envelope cut-off with a slope of 0.5 is obtained. This upper envelope and slope can be explained in a simple non-relativistic ejection model if (a), radio-loud quasars are radio standard candles…
