Team Futaba Family Grows


The Futaba team keeps on growing and, this time, we really do mean family! This father-son duo has lit up FPV race tracks across the country and now they’re bringing their skills to Team Futaba.

Ron Richter and his son Jackson have been racing drones for years. Ron has picked up wins at MultiGP events at locations all over the country and raced with DRL in Miami, FDR in NYC and more. Jackson, even at age 9, is an accomplished pilot who’s focused “on becoming the best pilot possible.”

Together, they take on tracks all over the country, build experience, and, as Ron says, “love every minute of it.” Jackson said, “This sport is the most amazing fun ever, and I want to be a part of it for a very long time!”

There’s no question they’re excited to be on the team. “I am super proud to be joining the amazing Futaba team! Thank you! Even more proud to be doing it with my son”, said Ron. “Thank you Futaba for this amazing opportunity”, said Jackson. As excited as they are, Team Futaba is even more happy to have them aboard.

Team Futaba is proud to welcome Ron and Jackson Richter to the team. Keep an eye on them for a 1-2 punch of awesome things to come!
