This just in from Hal Parenti

“Just returned from the 40th Annual Mint Julep Scale meet, where I was fortunate enough to take first place in Designer Scale, and my son Gary received the Best Civilian Aircraft award. The contest went well, the weather was great!”

Congrats to Gary and Hal. Spectacular models!  And Thank you for flying the Airtronics SD-10G!

Lee Rice Wins Big at Top Gun

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 31, 2012 by mikegoesflying

To many scale modelers a Top Gun win is as important as a Nats win or a Scale Masters win. The competition is fierce and the quality of the models are simply amazing.

Airtronics Pilot Lee Rice is no stranger to Top Gun as he’s an avid modeler and has attended and participated before. But this year, he went down with a serious competitor and was honored with some great recognition. We could not be prouder!

Lee brought home trophies for 3rd place in Expert and best World War II Performance. That’s saying something when you consider the number and quality of warbirds that attend Top Gun every year!

Congratulations to Lee and his award winning Corsair, flown of course by the Airtronics SD-10G

Ed Franz Wins

Ed Franz is a great sailplane pilot and all around decent guy. It seems he’s constantly competing in these ALES “Altitude Limited Electric Soaring” contests. Looks like he just won another.

And as you would expect, he trusts every one of his competition planes ONLY to Airtronics.

Congrats!

Here’s what Ed had to say:

Hi Mike,

 

Good day at Dayton last weekend. Pretty cool plaque.
