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.
