Default Made In The USA

Here is a list of companies that we have put together of RC products that are made in the USA. I'm sure there are a few holes so feel free to post names and links and I'll update the list below.

Thanks for all the help with putting this together, especially ThomasB for all the kit makers.

You are welcome and only glad to do so. I do not think enough attention is given to USA made RC products in these forums.

Bob,

No doubt that balsa is not grown here. But we can't overlook those companies that are building and designing planes here in the USA because of that.

I'm not 100% certain of the rules, but I think things like balsa and foam are considered "raw materials", which I don't think restricts a company from using the "Made in USA" moniker instead of "Assembled in the USA".

Same for my kits. I get my foam from my laser cutter, who gets it from RCFoam in Georgia, who gets it from the manufacturer in Europe.

Frank -- I was going to send you a PM, in an effort to not look like a COMPLETE idiot... ...but I can't seem to PM you.

In any event, after looking at your list more closely, I realized www.KarglUSA.com also sells a Profile-38 kit which was designed and laser-cut in the USA. The material is Depron, which is made in Europe, so I don't know how that factors into your list... However, if it can be put on your list, I would appreciate it!

Thank you!

No worries Guy, I have KarglUSA already listed under electronics. Is that OK?

WRT to PMs, I prefer email instead. I disabled the PM function. Emails I will always see, PMs might go unoticed for a few days.
