We don’t make a habit of blasting news of every driver sponsorship shake-up, but this one’s important on two fronts: one, it’s Adam Drake, who is sorting out new sponsors after a long stint with Horizon Hobby brands, and two, it’s Hitec, who has long been known for making great servos but not for having transmitters in the hands top pros. All that changes now, as Adam will be using the Lynx 4S to control his AMain-backed, Novarossi-powered Mugen vehicles. We gave the Lync 4S high marks in our April 2015 issue, but there will be no stronger endorsement than Adam getting good results with the system.
Says Hitec, “We are extremely thrilled to announce the signing of “The Man…The Myth…The Legend…” Adam Drake as a Full Factory Driver for Hitec RCD USA. Since 2005, Adam Drake has been a Hitec Team Driver using our impeccable servo technology to make him a world-renowned racing champion; and now, in addition to running our Revolutionary 9000 series of Brushless servos, Adam will by piloting his vehicles to victory with the Hitec Lynx 4s radio and Axion line of receivers. His expertise, professionalism and proficiency in RC are recognized by all and we are proud to have him racing and working with Hitec to continue pushing the boundaries in RC innovation.”
