Hello Craig (Airtronics Team Manager)
Please find attached a picture of the South African F3J team. Our junior team took Silver at the 2012 WC, all were flying with the SD10G and the models were fitted out with 94809 and 94761 Airtronics servos. Without the support from Airtronics this achievement would never have been possible.
Thank you for your support

Kyle Paulson and his son Kyler are heading off to the first ever F3F World Championships this fall in Germany. Kyle and his son Kyler have been racing F3F together for quite a long tim now and they are part of the 2012 US F3F Team. Kyler made the team as the Junior Pilot. Kyler competes with the men…..like the men! He is fast and has a great chance of winning the junior division at the Worlds.

 

Kyler is very excited as he is now a Airtronics Team Pilot looking forward to a great adventure in Germany with his dad. Kyle and Kyler are two peas in a pod and love flying RC together. Wish them luck at the WC!

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

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.
