At the end of August, KoPropo will begin distribution of the new MC-8 Radio System, presented during the Shizuoka Hobby Show. Its most interesting feature is its shape, which is similar to a video game pad. The radio is designed to be used on R/C model cars and for makers who want a versatile controller with many channels at an affordable price.
The MC-8 is sold with the MR-8 receiver, and offers 8-channel with accelerator and steering control proportional to the stick pressure.
Four different bundles will be available: the first with radio and receiver, a second that adds two MD-1NB modules and a battery holder (suitable for creating small robots); the third includes the receiver, a small ESC able to manage class 380 motors and a servo; the fourth is designed for 1/10th Scale model cars which replaces the 380 ESC with the VFS-FR2 Speed Controller suitable for 540 class motors.
