Getting to know us
It's been said perfect is the enemy of good. While only God is perfect, we shoot for perfection by relentlessly focusing on the details – no matter how nuanced. Our goal is simple. Every single product should be pick-of-the-litter compared to our competition.

Our servos are unique in having CNC centers andgoing together with 10 socket cap machine screws

Things you see, things you don't, and what to look for
We don't operate with a 'cost be damned' attitude but anyone with an eye for detail can instantly tell our products from the competition. For example, we assemble our servos with 10 Allen-head machine screws despite the fact using 4 Phillips-head screws (like everyone else) would cost 1/4th as much. We also CNC-machine our aluminum case component while competitors use extrusions costing 70% less. And we use genuine Nobel potentiometers when the other guys use cheapo oriental-clones.

While other are satisfied with plain plastic pockets, we fit Swiss-machined bronze inserts to serve as hard points for the steel gear shafts. This is how we keep the gear-train from developing slop. If you're the type that notices details you're gonna love our stuff. And there are other examples, like how we use a conformal-coating on the PCB (printed circuit board) for protecting against vibration. The other guys do nothing or make do with a piece of foam and call it good. We also we use ABEC-9 bearings versus ordinary (and less precise) ABEC-5. Sure, 90% of folks couldn't tell the difference in a million years, but we know. We could go on, but if you're a perfectionist then you should know this . . . we share the same obsession for detail.

When engineers make decision instead of the accountants
Bottom line? We won't say the accountants control our competitors, but if cheap and good enough were in our vocabulary we wouldn't be known for bespoke products. Finally, if you know of any product that matches up to one of ours – and wins – let us know because we won't sleep until ours is better again.

Regarding John Beech - General Manager (and janitor)

An engineering graduate of the University of Alabama, and based in central-FL, I've been an RC modeler since 1972. Following a crash of my favorite model due to switch failure, I added a 2nd lead to a battery pack because two switches in parallel provided redundancy.

My flying buddies immediately grasped the benefit. Some asked me to build 2-lead packs for them. Word got around and before long I was getting orders from all over the state! This led me to form ProModeler in 1983 and just like that, I was in business!

In 1993 I got a video camera and editing equipment and formed Panache Productions with a focus on how-to and event videos. One day the phone rang and it was Great Planes interested in becoming our distributor. In 1998 I started ModelSport video magazine, and in 2004, I founded Audacity Models for my model helicopter.

The natural progression saw us expanding the ProModeler range of products to include mufflers, blades, gyroscopes, plus servos (in addition to our batteries). This basically served to vertically integrate the helicopter product (e.g. one box, all the goodies required to go fly). However, with professional UAS-interest in our servos, these eventually became the tail that wagged our business-dog.

Today, we continue offering 2-lead packs (because good ideas don't go out of style), plus our helicopter (Pantera P6), and ModelSport DVDs, but our focus is on servos. Ranging from a tiny 105oz-in sub-micro to a standard-size servo outputting a whopping 630oz-in, we have 19 different models in our lineup. Due to our primary customer, our servos meet three MIL-STDS (vibration, shock, and water intrusion) but we're pleased to offer them to hobbyists as well.

On the personal front, the long suffering Lynn continues to put up with me - warts and all - and in addition to flying my models, I'm also into old cars. Add to is, I fly a full-scale Beechcraft Bonanza, which I use to visit modeling friends and customers in an around the southeast (yes, packing a model to fly).
