Futaba are manufacturers of popular hobby-grade radio control systems including transmitters, receivers, servos, electronics and model aircraft. These products are used as the electronic link between the person controlling a model aircraft and the ground and the actual remote control system in the vehicle.
Over a quarter of a century ago, Futaba became one of the first companies of its type to provide comprehensive radio control products, selection and service to hobbyists. Futaba systems and products were quickly accepted and used by serious competitors and casual enthusiasts alike. Futaba products are used in the air, on the water, underwater and on the ground for all types of R/C models.
The brand, actively traded on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, is distributed in North America by Great Planes.
