Our first Hobby Radio Control Distribution Center for the United States was formed in California in the late 70’s
Futaba Corporation was founded in 1948 in Japan as a manufacturer and seller of receiver vacuum tubes. Utilizing vacuum tube technology, Futaba began manufacturing vacuum fluorescent displays. In 1962, Futaba began producing radio control equipment as well as press die set components, establishing what still remains as two of the company’s primary divisions. This was followed by the development of mold base components and the more recent addition of VFD modules to complete the lineup of Futaba’s major products.
