I got to check out the Nomadio and those features are very nice. I even like the general look of it. The kicker was when I picked it up it wasn't even close to how comfortable my Helios feels. Now If nomadio improves the molding and makes a comortable grip then adds a drop down wheel I'm there.

It would be really stupid to discontinue your flagship radio without releasing a new one first...

Any hobbyshop setup with Horizon Hobbies (who owns Dynamite, Losi, etc) can get KO Radios.....so if they sell Losi, they can sell KO

If there was a new radio coming, I think some of the KO drivers at the worlds would have run it. Although it is likely they could have been running new electronics inside thier standard (looking) Helios...

I'll talk to Josh Cyrul and find out what's going on. If it's something I can post, I will. If not, then you'll just have to "stay tuned"...

It's not discontinued.... Have 3 coming into the shop this week!! The special edition Helios may have been (for now) but there's no way they would discontinue the best transmitter on the market!!

We've been working on it for over a year now. The best things come to those that wait.

The competition version has been discountiued as of 3-4 months ago. That was a limited run with the gold wheel, gold screws, drop down wheel extention and super module.

We still offer all the extras that came with the competition version seperately, except the gold wheel.

Cyrul version, hmm... Josh we'll have to talk again. Did you find that green paint? I've got the parts.

EA- Nice to see your mug in Xtreme. Now we know all (well almost all) of your secrets.
