Futaba Corporation (双葉電子工業株式会社, Futabadenshikougyoukoujoukaisha?) (lit. Futaba electronics manufacturing corporation) is a Japanese company created in 1948 that manufactures popular hobby-grade radio control systems including transmitters, receivers, servos, electronics and model aircraft. These products are used as the electronic link between the person controlling a model aircraft and the actual remote control system in the vehicle.
Over a quarter of a century ago, Futaba became one of the first companies of its type to provide comprehensive radio control products, selection and service to hobbyists. Futaba systems and products were quickly accepted and used by serious competitors and casual enthusiasts alike. Futaba products are used in the air, on the water, underwater and on the ground for all types of RC models.
Fake Futaba goods warning
Apparently there are a number of fake Futaba 'clones' of servos and gyros. The most obvious difference between the fakes and the real product is the color of the servo pins: Futaba are gold, the clones are silver.
