"If you are already an Airtronics flier, you're going to love the new SD-10G. If you've never used an Airtronics radio, its felixble and innovative programming features and attractive street price... are great reasons to make the switch. You'll be glad you did. I highly recommend it. -Gerry Yarrish, Model Airplane News, October 2009.

Airtronics – 2.4GHz Specialists
After the successful release of the RDS8000 (a GREAT sport radio in its own right), Airtronics has released an industry-leading, innovative, competition radio. The SD-10G: 10 channels, 10-bit computer, and as much as 10 times faster as some older competition systems, the SD-10G is a full-range, fast, high-performance radio designed for sport and competition Helicopter, Fixed Wing, and Sailplane Pilots. Featuring bullet-proof, no-hassle FHSS (Frequency Hopping Technology), Airtronics 2.4GHz has already gained reputation as a no-hassle, reliable spread spectrum solution, 'fairly' earning Airtronics/Sanwa Engineers, the nick-name: "2.4GHz Specialists".
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.
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.
We could go on and on, but let's make it quick and easy. Whether you fly for sport or compete at the highest levels in categories such as F3J Sailplanes, Pattern, IMAC, Scale, Indoor Foam, Micro Helicopters, or 3D (and that's heli or plank) you'll get the Advantage. You will see there has never been a radio like this in our hobby, a radio this advanced, this reliable, and this fast. And remarkably, you will find the SD-10G truly affordable.
A note about Digital vs. Analog Servos
The SD-10G with the 10-channel receiver simply may be too fast for some analog servos. They simply may not work. To truly see the advantages of this high-resolution, high frame-rate, low- latency radio, you'll need digital servos.
If you are using analog servos and experience problems with the 10-channel receiver, and you don't have digital servos to replace them yet, that's OK, just use the 8-channel or 7-channel full-range receiver, or 6-channel park-flyer receiver. These receivers ALL work GREAT with the SD-10G and are 100% compatible with analog servos.
