KO Propo EX-5UR with KR-210S receiver


KO Propo together will their UK distributor RC Disco have released a new version of the EX-5UR radio set which brings down the price of this high spec entry level radio to just under £100. The new price has been achieved by supplying the radio with a two channel KR-210S receiver rather than the two previously included 2.4Ghz 3 channel RX units.  As most racers never use the third channel, the new radio set does not compromise their performance as the transmitter still has the full range of adjustments & seven model memory.
