Sanwa M12S-RS 2.4GHz radio system – Coming soon

On show during this week’s Shizuoka Hobby Show is Sanwa’s forthcoming M12S-RS 2.4GHz radio system. Based off of the popular M12S the M12S-RS will offer slightly reduced specifications to make the radio more budget-friendly without hampering overall performance. It is understood that the radio’s case will be of a slightly different finish although shape and ergonomics remain the same. The transmitter also comes with a soft steering wheel spring, the display colour is available in white only and the headphone jack and vibration alert are missing on the RS model. The set also comes without battery, charger and accessories known from the M12S but with the drop down steering wheel extension installed. In terms of firmware the RS relies on the M12S’ specifications, meaning SSR and SSL support as well as telemetry features remain with the sport variant. More information will become available in time for the release.
