Ron Ton, RC Industry pioneer, has passed away

Ron Ton passed away

It is with deep sadness that we report the passing of one of the RC industry’s true pioneers, Ron Ton. Co-founder of Serpent as well as a competitive racer in his day, the Dutchman invented a whole host of innovative products including the Centax clutch and the 2-speed gearbox, just to name a few, and it is a testament to his engineering ability that both of these inventions are still are in use today, some 3 decades later. Red RC would like to express our condolences to the Ton family.
