Default Comprehensive Precision Aerobatics Equipment List

OK.. basically this is a thread to point people to the various manufacturers of equipment for this wonderful hobby of ours. Ideally I'm looking to keep this focused on contemporary hardware (airframes, engines/motors, batteries, etc). You can find radio info literally everywhere, so let's keep this out of it. This is generally USA specific for the non-manufacturers but if you have something from other countries PLEASE let me know. I'd like this to be a one-stop resource for pattern related things. It'd be nice if we could get a moderator to sticky this post as well.

If you have a link to add, just reply to this thread and I'll update the list as they come in.. If I've left you or your business out, don't worry, it's NOT intentional. Just post a reply and you'll be added.

Since the Axial is being kitted by ZN Line for Patrick, I think the link to Patrick's personal website it a bit redundant.

Thanks for the info!

Keep it coming all!

I think he is about to find out the difference between profit per unit and total profit.

We used to have a lot more here in the USA actually. Byron Originals, SIG, and others made fuels too.
