*KONTRONIK is mourning*

*KONTRONIK is mourning*

On Friday the 19th April, my beloved husband, brilliant engineer and
esteemed CEO died in a tragic car accident. His loss will create a great
void that will be a challenge for us all.

With great pride and perseverance, Harald and I worked together to build
KONTRONIK into a successful company. We have always believed in our
KONTRONIK family and I am convinced they will all work together to carry
on Harlad’s vision.

The funeral service will be on Friday, April 26th in our Catholic Church
(Hadolfinger Straße, 72108 Rottenburg-Hailfingen).

In tiefer Trauer aus Rottenburg-Hailfingen, with great teariness

Sabine Konrath

Sorry to hear of the loss--Harald was one of the pioneers in electric flight systems. I always enjoyed our meetings we had at many F5B/D World Champs over the years.

According to my friend he and his friend died when the Cobra he had just got the day before turned over near his home. http://www.tagblatt.de/Home/nachrich...id,211559.html

My condolences to the Konrath family. I too first experienced brushless flight with Kontronik components. Excellent equipment.

Sabine,
Although we only had the privilege of meeting Harald once, his professionalism and sportsmanship will always be remembered. He was truly a talented engineer, but from what we saw from him, he was a better man. His loss will be felt by many around the world.
Our most sincere condolences from our family to yours.
Sincerely, Arch Adamisin, F5D Director, 2000 Worlds, San Diego.

My deepest sympathies for Sabine, family, and friends. Harald was a great engineer, competitor, and a genuinely friendly person ready to help. Very sad to hear the news.

My condolences as well. Bought my first brushless from Kontronik, from Harald himself actually, on the Dortmund fair quite some time ago.
