Greg emailed us this week with this great pic and some great news!

At the District 7 NSRCA Championships for 2011. Greg won all six rounds in intermediate. In understated fashion, Greg commented: “Nice weekend.”

His SD-10G performed flawlessly and Great had a great time.

I also wanted to point out Greg was instrumental in getting us another Single Stick/Foot Pedel setup for an RC pilot who only has use of one arm. Similar to the RDS8000 we set up for John Greenshields , this new SD-10G is spectacular with it’s single stick knob for control. Our service staff diligently on this project and I think it’s paid off!

The foot pedal is connected to a lead we extended out of the bottom of the radio. Next to it is a switch. If the pilot wants, he can flip the switch and the left stick will work as normal. Or, he flips the switch the other way and the pedal and the right stick “rudder knob” is actuated.

And if the pilot wants to later, the knob can even be removed and the radio can work as normal.

This just in from Bob McGowan

Hi Mike,

We just had our F3J soaring team selection event in Florida and you’ll be happy to hear that all of the pilots that made the USA senior team flew the Airtronics SD10G. That is Cody Remington, Tom Kiesling, and myself. I’m looking forward to representing the USA in South Africa next summer.

Best Regards,

Bob McGowan

This just in from David Klein:

Mike Greenshields and Airtronics USA,

I wanted to take the time to formally thank the entire Airtronics family. The support that the 2011 US F3B team received from Airtronics USA, and all of the staff that make up the ATX family was really above and beyond. We traveled to Laiwu, China on September 15th, and prepared to compete with the rest of the world from September 23rd through the 28th. We blogged every day of travel on our website, posting pictures and reports daily. Blogging directly to our website ensured that those following our progress would be continually exposed to our sponsors banners, Airtronics being #1.

Attached are some images of all three team pilots using their SD-10Gs. …

The US team won a silver medal for the team score with Kyle Paulson placing 4th, David Klein placing 6th, and Thomas Kiesling placing 8th all using SD-10Gs. I couldn’t be more appreciative of being part of the Airtronics team.

Thank you again for all of your support. It really makes me proud to be part of the family,
David
