The system required a high level of operator safety, extended range, along with a smooth and accurate proportional control. Also required were roll shock, zero G, and an operator presence system to ensure constant monitoring of the radio controls.

The Result Falcon was able to install the system for half the cost of the original, and taking up only a tenth of the space. Our system also met and exceeded the requirements for range, and more importantly operator safety.
