    Pretty impressive list ‘eh?  Crawler guys will love the MOA & 4WS mixes along with the 3 position switch, while racing folks will love the super fast latency!

    Here’s what she looks like out of the box!  The MT-4 comes with a receiver (more on that in a bit), an RPM sensor, temp sensor, optional 2nd grip, dry cell receiver battery holder, switch etc…

    Controls:

    The MT-4 has a user friendly layout and is very comfortable to hold in your hand.  All of the knobs and switches are user-assignable!  So, you can make the MT-4 work FOR YOU.  The lever pictured to the left of the wheel is a 3 position switch, which is great for those running a DIG setup or perhaps an electronic winch?  The MT-4 also features 4 individual digital trim switches, one for each channel.

    Airtronics includes this new #92010 4 channel receiver with the MT-4.  This receiver is very small considering all of the things it has to offer!  3 telemetry ports, 4 channel ports.  This receiver operates on a new 2.4ghz modulation. FH4T.  The MT-4 can also use any other FHSS receiver in the Airtronics line!

    All in all, the MT-4 looks and feels like a winner!  Make sure to check them out at www.rpphobby.com!  We hope you enjoyed reading this quick look!  Once we get a chance to test this awesome new system, we’ll work on a more in-depth review!
