KO ProPo EX-2 ST2 2.4GHz radio

See: KO Propo

KO ProPo have introduced the new EX-2 ST2 2.4GHz radio. Based on the high-end EX-RR radio, the EX-2 ST2 features a new sensor for both steering and throttle offering excellent durability and operation feeling. It prevents decrease of durability and operation feeling due to wear, a common feature on this type of sensor. The new sensor achieves a smooth operation feeling while the durability much more higher than conventional products. In addition, the new sensor outputs a more linear signal with respect to the operation amount. The steering shaft uses now two ball bearings instead of one and associated with a double-sided support, the steering provides a more precise operation feeling and reliability. The spring of the extension unit has been changed to a soft type. The tension of the conventional spring becomes stronger as it is tilted, but with this soft spring, it can be operated with almost constant force even if tilted. In addition, the tension can be adjusted, so you can adjust the spring tightly and change the strength of the “overcoming feeling” when passing through neutral. The EX-2 ST2 2.4GHz radio works with the latest V2.12 software and comes with the KR-241FH receiver. Its availability is expected in August.

KO Propo EX-LDT radio

See: KO Propo

KO Propo have introduced the new EX-LDT radio. The “LDT” (Lay Down Trigger) means that the trigger operation axis has been rotated 90 degrees so that you can squeeze or press naturally with your finger tip. As everyone’s finger size is different, the fingertip is adjustable by moving spacer by 1mm step increments and maximum 5mm. The throttle unit is adjustable by hand size or finger length and the tension of trigger spring can be adjusted to your preference. The standard trigger width is 17mm and a 21mm width lever is included to suit as many possibilities as possible. The nw angle sensor used in the throttle is the same that is used in the Expert Grip2 and Drop down extension2 which was particular about the durability and the feeling of operation. The EX-LDT radio features the new Push Control control. A motor that has a strong magnetic force will add a braking effect when the throttle is released and will make a car stall in the corner. Setting the amount of forward input to remain on the throttle as the trigger returns to neutral can be adjusted. The LCD screen can be placed in two directions for a preferred viewing position while the new mounting bracket for the LCD provides a stable mount. Another new function is the Rollout Calculator; also seen in the EX-2, this allows for the calculation of the rollout (car movement distance per one motor revolution) automatically. The radio can by charge by connecting to the stand, without removing the battery from the transmitter.
