During this week’s Shizuoka Hobby Show Futaba are presenting several forthcoming new items such as the T7XC competition stick radio and the S-Bus compatible MC970CR brushless speed controller. As for the radio, Futaba’s new flagship stick transmitter is understood to offer similar features as the T7PX pistol-grip radio and it is usable with T-FHSS SR Super Response, T-FHSS, S-FHSS and FASST compatible receivers. A huge LC display dominates the front side of the transmitter that is customisable with a rear carbon fibre strap for easier handling. More information will become available in time for the release, however no official date is mentioned yet.
Also on show in Shizuoka is the S.Bus2-compatible MC970CR competition brushless speed controller from Futaba. No specifications or features are available yet but by the looks of things the speed was designed for 1/10th scale classes, it features integrated power and set buttons, and the SBM-1 model indicates that it could be programmed using the transmitter. Last but not least is the new HPS CB700 high-performance 47kg-cm torque servo whose specifications leaked only this week.
