Get The Advantage

The SD-10G was developed by Sanwa's best and brightest computer programmers in concert with the most experienced pilots from Sanwa Japan and Airtronics USA. From F3J World Champions to 3D Helicopter Experts, from AMA Hall-of-Famers to Pattern Nats Champs, the team who planned and put together the SD-10G for you are some of the most dedicated and experienced modelers in the world today. This competition-level radio will be just at home in the hands of a glider pilot as it is in the hands of a freestyle aerobatic champion. We've worked with pilots for more than an year to ensure every detail, every nuance was developed for the modeler, both sport and competitor.

You'll find the SD-10G is incredibly user-friendly and easy to setup, yet allows for flexibility not found even in radios at twice the price. Sport pilots will find their craft easy to setup. Advanced pilots will love the customizable features that truly make this radio unique. As modelers, we know performance is not free, but the Team at Airtronics worked hard to ensure the SD-10G offers both industry leading performance and value.

ADVANCED 2.4GHz
The SD-10G is fast. In our side-by-side tests, we found no other 9 or 10 channel radio to be faster. Airtronics puts you ahead of your aircraft and feeling incredibly connected. The Sanwa high-speed computer chip works together with its unique high performance 2.4GHz RF chip to ensure your inputs are translated at industry leading speed to the servos. Your servos will feel faster, the radio will respond quicker, and you'll wonder how you ever did without.

So who wants one and who already has one on order?

I know I am seriously thinking about getting one, even though my SD8000 is not very old at all.

And one more question. Do many pilots needs such a radio? Or is it just nice to have?

I also have an RDS8000, and I love it, but for me, I need the SD-10G. I have to have it, it looks cool, and has a lot more features. The way it handles the swashplate on a heli will be much better than the RDS. That is the main reason I am upgrading, I only fly helicopters. I pre ordered mine as soon as it was up on the HobbyPeople website, so I should get one from the very first shipment, I can't wait to get it.
