WHO WE ARE

Our Story

This is our Story.

 

XGuard was started after Frank Moradiellos and Angel Rojas asked Auggie to make them a capacitor backup guard because the German company that used to produce them, RC Prototyping, had discontinued them so they were no longer available.

 

When they received their units that Auggie designed for them, they loved them, and asked Auggie to make them available for everyone else. They ten started asking him to make more of the products that they always wanted. What started as a project to help Auggie’s friends, grew at a tremendous pace and fast-forward to today, it’s now the dominant supplier of RC Backup Power Units, RPM sensors, Glow Plug Drivers, RC Helicopter Setup Tools, High-Power RC Power switches, Helicopter Dampeners and many other hobby accessories.

 

The brand started growing and expanded to become global. XGuard now has dealers all over the world. A simple search for the word XGuard RC yields results of large and small hobby stores with large ones such as Amain Hobbies and Heli direct to your local Hobby Town hobby store. The products are being used in Radio control helicopters, glow igniters for Radio control airplanes and cars, even in FPV stores such as FPV exchange, the brand is now ubiquitous and everywhere, to the point that it has become the de-facto standard for backups, drivers, switches, etcetera. Everywhere you go you see the signature yellow-green case identifying a pilot using an XGuard product.

 

 

MADE IN USA

XGuard is a large presence now in the RC Hobby industry yet it’s a small arm of a larger electronics manufacturing company based in the United States that manufactures electronic products and subassemblies for the medical, defense, avionics and surveillance industry. Being that the case, this relatively small hobby arm has resources available that are not normally available to a hobby only company. From high-speed automated electronics manufacturing to sophisticated electronic components inventory procurement and management which makes an otherwise small company to have access to resources that allow it to react to market needs in record time. Since most of the manufacturing is in-house in the United States and it is CE, RoHS and ISO compliant, it means it can supply the world market with quality products made in the United States.

This ability makes XGuard a very agile company being able to supply any order size and create new versions of improved products in mere days. All the feedback the company gets becomes updated products at a very fast pace, so the maturity of a design happens very quickly.

We want to thank our dear customers for the great reception given to our products and the constant encouragement we receive from you. Such great reception makes us want to excel and provide more products for all the hobby needs. We are daily encouraged by the overwhelmingly positive feedback, and it makes us grateful for having such a nice customer base.
