New Addition: Hawk Radio System

Ron Wittman is well-known as a FF guy.  In the 1970s, at the encouragement of his friend Mark Smith, owner of Mark’s Models, he gave RC a try.   His attempt was made with this Hawk 3-channel radio system by Orbit Electronics installed in a Windfree RC Sailplane.

A white Hawk single-stick transmitter, an orange receiver and three white servos.  One servo has the "Orbit" logo still visible.

I’m not sure what happened to the Windfree, but the Hawk radio system was recently donated to the museum.

Thank you, Ron, for helping to grow the museum’s collection.
