Sanwa introduce the MT-4S 2.4GHz radio system, the follow-up model of the popular MT-4 intermediate level transmitter. The latest incarnation offers a blue back-lit screen for improved visibility of all relevant parameters during usage and setup plus Sanwa’s SSL technology allows to adjust the Super Vortex speed controller and SGS-01C gyro via the transmitter. When used in FH4T modulation the MT-4S now also is nearly as fast as Sanwa’s current M12 top-of-the-foodchain radio while offering 18 model memory, telemetry functions and the usual array of mixes and servo setup options. The radio comes including a RX-472 receiver and will become available very shortly.

Sanwa have released the Exzes-Z, the stick version of the M12 and the successor to the popular Exzes-X. The new system claims to feature super high speed response with next to zero latency for the ultimate driving feel and also allows you to program the D/R settings to allow you to change trim or a curve in an instant to react to the changing conditions. The transmitter has also been made significantly lighter compared to its predecessor thanks to changes to the radio’s internal structure. Finally, like the M12, the Exzes-Z allows you to integrate a telemetry function to record your throttle and steering inputs and with extra sensors to recorder the RPM, voltage, temperature and further inputs.
