How about a LED like the original so we know it's on? Was kinda handy to know the Rx had power.

Nm - just saw the specs.

I'd like to see it $75-ish or less.

They'll probably knock 5 bucks off and convince us it's the deal of the century.

There is a two tone led in it, Green and Red. and that's blinking slowly, Not sure what the LED combinations mean, but it started with Red/green and after one flash, it stayed flashing green.

Yes, I was driving with two PT's in mij car. The other red/black wire you see on the photo is my own "old" one. Both where shown on the ABM RC system as well on the MyLaps system

Best Regards

I hope it's less money, the price of the other is outrageous... I know they are the only game in town, but that's not a reason to keep upping the price

I bought my original for $50 from Tamiya one year and have watched the price jump exponentially since

Do these new PT's work with the AMB RC 3 Decoders? I have lots of problems with AMB PT's not working on the AMB RC3 decoder box where they have no propblem on the AMB RC decoder box. A problem AMB has never addressed

We may be in for a big surprise with the new transponder!

Do you think they'll summit it to ROAR for a product approval?

Thats kind of funny to think about, but I guess they have to. But this is AMB... I mean they are the standard for transponders/ Timing. I dont see how they can be turned down. I mean I guess ROAR could say "Thats not allowed", or maybe some other RC governing body could say that but,,, really??

Just my small attempt at humor about ROAR! MyLaps (AMB) is to big and widespread to care about what they think!

I agree. I guess I was in agreement with you the whole time I just didnt quite understand you. But yes, I mean not to knock ROAR because I am a member and I think they are a necessity, but AMB is more a standard to scoring than ROAR is to race regulation.
