Kyosho America have announced first details on their all-new Syncro EX-6 Mini-Z radio system. The newest and most advanced radio ever built for use with the Mini-Z cars from Kyosho is based on the EX-2 radio system just introduced by KO Propo. It takes advantage of the “KIY” (Kustomize It Yourself) system that allows modular expansion and modification of the radio system, and it has a new ultra-fast hybrid mode that is faster than any system currently available. The Syncro EX-6 features a high level of adjustability via precision digital settings that remain stored in the radio’s memory. Most of the settings are adjusted via the two-position LCD display, which can display data in line with the radio for more conventional viewing, or it can be rotated to a transverse position, which makes it easier to view settings and data from the side of the radio.
