50% Bonus extended while team is in Slovakia. We need help!

Hey everyone!
The Team is now assembling in Vienna enroute to Martin Slovakia. We have still not reached our fund raising goals and really need your help to cover our basic travel costs to the Worlds. Please support your soaring team with a raffle ticket purchase now.

We have extended the 50% bonus special while we are in Martin. The odds are totally in your favor! $100 purchase reaps huge rewards (especially if you previously bought tickets.)

1. We have sold way less than the number of tickets sold last cycle in 2012.
2. We have more raffle prizes available this cycle. (67 prize draws)

The Team really needs your help.

Everybody who has purchased tickets during the year already can benefit too.

We will allocate extra tickets to be distributed to our most valuable supporters as follows.

Buy $100 (or more) worth of tickets in July while we are at the Worlds and we will send you a BONUS of 50% more tickets. That means for $100 you will get 75 tickets instead of 50. Maximize your chances to win!

Grab em now and don't miss out. There will be no more better special deal than this.

If you already purchased tickets previously we will also apply the 50% bonus to your entire total ticket purchase providing you buy an extra $100 worth of tickets in July while the Team is away. (You are rewarded this way for being such a great Team supporter.)

Frank Tiano of Top Gun and Florida Jets fame has become the preferred adhesive supplier for Team USA AND he has supplied 10 great kits to add to our raffle.
Castle Creations have joined Team USA as a Silver Sponsor with a bunch of awesome ESC's in the raffle. Some amazing supportive sponsors have stepped up to make this raffle simply HUGE with now 57 big prizes.........

Go to the Raffle webpage and check it out here.

Get behind your national Team selected to represent the USA in Slovakia in July at the World Championships. We have some great sponsors and the donations provided are being raffled in a giant draw in 2014. You can support your national team and win any of the 67 fabulous prizes as well.
Once again the amazing support of vendors in USA has seen the us put together a huge Raffle which is growing every week. There are some great prizes to be won including two brand new F3K models supplied by Team manager Tom Siler and Skip Miller Models along with an X2 F3J model from Soaring USA and a classic Supra Pro from Kennedy Composites.

Hey guys,

I wanted to put up a brief shoutout to all in the soaring community. Bob at Soaring USA has once again donated one of those beautiful Explorers for the F3J team raffle.

Nan is doing some amazing things with regards to structure. If you had asked me 4 years ago if we'd have sub 60 ounce 4 M models, I'd have told you emphatically, no way! The fuses, unbelievably strong. The spars, well....what can I say other than just... "Wow!"

Thank you Bob for the donation, and Bob and Nan for an amazing airframe!

SD-10G Airtronics transmitter system.

Well I could just copy and paste all the features and functions that this radio has but I wont. It has everything I need to fly my F3J models and the power stuff I play with. How ever it has no touch screen, no camera, and the screen is not in color. I spend very little time looking at my Tx while Im flying. These things might be nice to show off to the guys at the field, but I feel no disadvantage at a contest.

This system has everything I need and more to program all the tricky little programs I use that would be more difficult with other radios. I have found that I don't have to trick this radio to do what I want it to do. No need to program through the back door to fool the system to get the job done. It is wide open for what ever you can dream up.

Above all else, the very most important thing about this system, the main reason I use ATX is the reception. I have flown at so many different fields in different states, in the back of pickup trucks,had trees, people, and buildings between my Tx and model and have never seen my model go into fail safe. At Muncie I flew farther then I ever have with high tension power lines between my model and I with no issue. Complete confidence in the guidance of your model aircraft is a must, no question. This is why I have in the Airtronics SD-10G.

With all this said, the price is on point. These great systems can be had for under 300 bucks! Are you kidding, do you need a touch screen? I would like to thank Airtronics for supporting the J team with these great systems and loads of other products that I will report on later. Get your self a great radio and go Airtronics! Or just buy some tickets and win one of these radios or other great gear.

Completely agree, Jody. It's a great radio for Sailplanes. The only reason I switched from Airtronics to JR was Airtronics didn't seem to be that committed to the aerobatics side of the radio, and it's lacking some things that I REALLY needed on that side of my flying. If I was just flying sailplanes, I'd still be flying Airtronics.
