Behind the Scenes: How speed controllers are made

Mar 02, 2012 4 Comments by

Recently I got to take a tour through the Castle Creations factory in Olathe, KS.  I really enjoyed my visit there and I found that making speed controls was a much bigger production than I had imagined.  In this video Lee Estingoy takes us through the assembly line at the Castle factory to see how speed controls are produced.

About the author

West Coast senior editor About me: I’ve been involved with RC aircraft since high school and have flown just about everything. I started my RC career with scratch-building, but now like many pilots I rely on ARFs to get me in the air. My main focus is on pylon racing, aerobats, combat and scale warbirds.

    I think this shows why we “get what we pay for”. Can you imagine that kind of attention to detail in some third world country back ally shop?
