Having brought you the very first photos and detailed information about the new KO Propo EX-1 yesterday, we have sourced more detailed images of the transmitter with a focus on the modular K.I.Y. system. As explained before the radio allows you to assemble it in modules using the Steering, Throttle and Master units and as such you can configure it to just the way you like it. There are optional steering modules, for a lowered steering wheel and also for a stick option which gives you a hybrid pistol stick result, something that goes back to the original transmitters from the 70s and 80s. We are told by KO that there is a lot more to this radio and we will be given an in depth run through at the Nuremberg toy fair in 2 weeks.

Robitronic now offers a new lineup of sturdy and ultra-reliable servo-arms. They add a clever clamping mechanism that grips the servo’s spline with enough force, so that you’ll never lose or strip a servo arm again. Even if the servo’s spline screw works itself loose, you can safely keep on racing since the clamp-style servo arms will still provide a firm grip. Laser-etching tells you the spline indexing, (23T, 24T, 25T) they’re built for.
