Sanwa have released CAD images of their soon to be released MT-4 pistol grip transmitter. An all new look, this 2.4Ghz radio sports a large full dot LCD display and all the usual features you would expect from a radio of this level. What’s interesting is the inclusion of a telemetry system that can read receiver voltage, RPM and 2 different temperatures and feed it back to the screen on the transmitter. Expect it to hit the market later in the year.
Sanwa have released their new super-response coreless torque-servos, the SRG-CZ and SRG-BZ. The CZ has been designed specifically for use in the 1/8 off-road area, while the BZ is better suited for the nitro and electric on-road classes. Both feature high quality Japanese ball bearings, double isolation against humidity and a special high quality plastic case.
Sanwa have released 2 new servos, the HVS-ZV and HVS-ZS. These extremely strong and fast servos are optimised for both 6.0V and 7.4V and is therefore ideal for use with nitro models, where normally a voltage regulator is mandatory. Double isolated to protect against humidity, and ball raced, the ZV can manage 24.2kg per cm and can complete 40 degrees in 0.08s. while the ZS does 20.5kg per cm and the same range in 0.07s, at 6 volts.
Sanwa have released their SDX-901, a new extremely strong and high torque servo for car applications. Weighing in at 66 grams, it takes 0.10 seconds to travel 40 degrees and can handle 29kg per cm, both rates measured at 6.0V.
Airtronics has announced the release of their latest step in performance and compatibility with the new FHSS-2 2.4GHz surface radio technology, developed exclusively by and for Sanwa/Airtronics to provide superior performance, convenience, compatibility, as well as lower consumer prices. FHSS-2 Technology is ﬁrst released exclusively in the latest incarnation of their industry leading M11 and MX-3 chassis. FHSS-2 versions of the M11 and MX-3 are now in stock and ready for use. Sanwa in-house engineers have spent months testing and developing this new technology and the company’s own factory team have tested all the new equipment in the harshest and widest array of environments possible to ensure that all are 100% reliable. M11 and MX-3 keep their current features and conﬁguration and are now married to this high output, full range, high performance FHSS-2 2.4GHz technology.
Sanwa, or Airtronics as they are known to others, have released details on their new M11X. This the first of the M11 family to have the 2.4Ghz system integrated into the transmitter, before opting to have just a different module. The Japanese company claim that their new 2.4 system is 3 times faster then previous versions, making for a much more responsive system. The radio itself has only received some small cosmetic changes, due to the integration of the 2.4 system and now features a top mounted stubby aerial.
