Default Airtrol of Adrian Morane Saulnier

Am looking for one of these ARF Kits from late 60's. Company made Galloping Ghost equipment and a line of small ARF kits with plastic Fuses and Midwest foam wings and elevators. I had of the Morane Sauliers and promptly crashed it with my Controlaire Galloping Ghost. ( Have color 8mm footage to prove it!) Anyway contacted Dave Gray
at Dubro who used to work there and he had little info. Anybody have any insight on this company please share.

Thanks!

The one thing I can say about Airtrol of Adrian was they were an early player in the game and the 2 that I had were extremely fragile and didn't last too long. I'm sure that some collector has one or two but I'd be suprised if a lot of them survived.

Interesting. My home town and I don't remember ever hearing about them. Of course, that was the time girls held my attention more than models.

Dave Robelen comes to mind, I think he was the man behind Airtrol.
Their Cessna 150 looks to be the best of the lot for Galloping Ghost.
Airtrol Pulse Proportional systems used a Controlaire SH100 receiver. They made their own lightweight actuators that Dave designed and built, allowing them to be flown in 1/2A planes down to .020 size.
They had a rudder only, rudder elevator, and REM pulse systems. Interestingly, most of their Ghost systems lacked a trim for rudder, they only had elevator trim. They also had a fast pulse dual actuator set-up, and it was called the Digi-Pulse, but there was actually nothing digital about it: pure pulse proportional, single channel. I seem to recall they had a rudder only set-up, that came with the plane and engine. I saw one flying in a schoolyard when I was in my teens.
