Some have been asking... The hobbypeople.net website did go down due to a server problem. Our I.T. staff fixed the problem and it went back up last night. If anyone has any questions about an order, etc. call or email service

At the AMA Show last weekend, the Colonel was awarded a lifetime Achievement award. He's an interesting guy with an amazing story. I hope the AMA puts together some type of biography about him for the museum. There are NOT many people in this world who have done the thing's he has. From full size B17 pilot, to Fighter Test Pilot, to Model Aviation Scale Enthusiast, Colonel Robert E Thacker is an interesting guy to know.

Here's some pics from the Airtronics, Hobby People booths And the AMA Presentation to the Colonel.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by the Airtronics and Hobby People booth. It was good to talk to you!

The Airtronics SD-10G radio will be in soon (a week or two away) and the team has been hard at work flying, testing, giving feedback, etc. We've started updated the Airtronics website and we've started a blog for the Team Airtronics guys. See what's going on there.

If you have any questions about the new Radio or other Airtronics items, let me know

RCX - You GOTTA get there!
April 15, 2008 by mikegoesflying
OK, we’re in the final preparation for RCX (RCX.com) and I thought I’d share what we’ll be doing (of course in an effort to attract you to come!!! Obviously!!!) I am excited about the show and hope some of you can make it!

“Pomona Fairplex is going to be jammed with excitement, crowds, and fun on April 19th and 20th 2008.” (taken from the rcx.com website)

Here’s the deal Sparky… there’s TONS of new and interesting stuff from us!!!

1. Global is now the agent for Ultrafly and we’ll be showing the Ultrafly line AND the NEW SPEAR EDF in the Ultrafly booth. These models are beautiful, the new BL motors Ultrafly has really make them scoot, and we’ve negotiated much better pricing on the models.

2. The Prototype Airtronics 10CH will be there under my careful watch! Not publicly, but if you find me and ask, I will show it to you. No pictures please! That will be in the Airtronics booth (The Airtronics booth will be in the Car side of the show and we will show ATX also in the Global booth on the airplane side, but the radio will be locked up in the Airtronics booth)

3. Z-Car from SH Engines. Global is now the exclusive agent for all of the new SH products including their new 1/8th buggy, the Z-Car (it’s got some long winded name, but that’s it…) Greg Degani, World Champ AND Z-Car driver/co-designer will be on-hand to answer your questions in the Z-Car/SH Booth.

4. We’re showing the new VQ stuff...Continue Reading

Hi All,

I am trying to build a F.A.Q. file to post on the service and Airtronics.net website as well as to distribute to our dealers.

I was wondering if you'd all like to give some questions?
I thought it would be easier to make a FAQ file if I had some questions from the active modelers here at Ezone! Note I've made this request on my blog (mikegoesflying.wordpress.com) as well as at the Airtronics Yahoo Users group...

Already, of course, we've had a lot of questions and I'm using that as a starting point. But, any questions or comments you all have I thought would help make this file great right from the get-go...

So, if you can think of any, send them on over (post them here in a pm or comment on this blog, whatever is easier for you.)

Thanks in Advance.
