Axial R/C Inc. is proud to announce that Futaba has been added to the sponsor list for AxialFest 2012
Futaba Denshi was established in 1948 as a manufacturer and seller of receiver vacuum tubes. Utilizing vacuum tube technology, Futaba began manufacturing fluorescent tube displays. In 1962 Futaba began producing radio control equipment as well as press and punching die components, placing what still remain two of the company’s primary divisions. This was later followed by the development of mold base components and digital position readout systems, and the more recent addition of Vacuum Fluorescent Display tube modules. Firmly embracing the principle of manufacturing each component in-house, Futaba creates everything from its own tools to its own manufacturing facilities. The soundness of this strategy is validated by their ever growing list of awards for consistent, high-quality products. Today Futaba Corporation is the world leader in Vacuum Fluorescent Flat Panel Display (VFD) used in automotive and consumer products, and Radio Control Systems for both hobby and industrial applications.
In the movie Back to the future “doc” is seen using a Futaba controller to drive his Delorean.
