As for the miscellaneous bits and pieces, Futaba have the forthcoming 4PXR 2.4GHz pistol grip radio on show. The top of the foodchain transmitter is meant to be again faster than the already swift 4PX that was introduced not long ago. The R’s case features what appears to be a dark chrome coating although we are unsure if that’s just a gizmo for the show, as we doubt a chrome transmitter case will make you many friends on the rostrum. Features aren’t available yet nor is a release date but, like previously mentioned, we will keep you posted on any news.
When it comes to the speed controller side of things Hobbywing have the long awaited Xerun V3.1 follow-up model on show called the XR10 Pro. Rated at 120A the competition controller sports a slightly updated aluminium case design with a new heatsink shape as well as an aluminium fan protector. No specifications are known yet but the controller will also come as 40A and 160A variant from what is understood.
