I admire companies that DARES to take the risks and be the first with new ideas and technologies instead of following the norm .....so what if other had 20 or even a 100 years head start ! ....look at Sanyo and panasonic batteries division, they had a head start but the R/C market is all GP and IB batteries !

none of the sensors had weak plastic but i understand you want the most recent then i suggest you go to tower hobbies, ehobbies they all have the new stock but the best part is that nobody else can give you a radio that grows wiser and faster as you have had it for a while. thats right the others could give you this but they wont. they want you to buy next years model. that means you have to recycle the old to get the new but not anymore, not at NOMADIO

The plastic was never weak by any means(I've had mine fall a couple times and nothing at all happened to it). People were moreso complaining that there were wide gaps between the two pieces of plastic that form the radio; more of a visual thing.

The company that changed everything about RC just changed everything again.

Welcome to your future.

On “Black Friday” (November 25, 2005) Nomadio announced

Version 2 of its popular Sensor digital R/C controller system.

Amazingly, this new version adds features and functions to every Sensor ever built – no hardware update or upgrade is necessary. That’s because the Sensor is software-based.

And, the new software is FREE to all registered Sensor owners.

No other R/C radio manufacturer has ever provided this type of upgrade to its customers.

Major Sensor 2 Features

New Ultra-Secure N-Max digital radio protocol

Using technology developed for the military, Nomadio has further increased the Sensor’s resistance to noise and glitches with N-Max, Nomadio’s R/C optimized version of frequency hopping. That means that unlike ANY other R/C radio, Sensor 2 is constantly hopping around in the 2.4 Ghz band, sending 32 redundant messages, 100 times per second.

Think about it .. would you rather have your expensive car’s life riding on just one channel, sent out in just one packet at a time, at a low frame rate, and with no error correction (like AM, FM and cheap DSS “bolt on” radios), or is your car worth the security of N-Max … commands get sent 100 times per second on random channels, with 32 copies at a time and sophisticated error detection to make sure every one gets through?

Nobody else has N-Max, the only secure digital radio system designed for R/C.

Seven times the output power

FCC regulations allow for much higher power when Digital Spread Spectrum radios are used in Frequency Hopping mode. This provides Sensor 2 with N-Max even more usable range, and far better noise resistance.

100 Hz Refresh rate

Sensor 2 is still the fastest radio on the market, with 10ms maximum latency, 5 ms typical. No analog FM or AM radio can touch Sensor 2’s high speed digital throughput.

Aftermarket DSS add-on’s are left in the dust.

40 Model Memories

Sensor 2 provides up to 40 model memories – more than anyone will ever need. But there is a great reason for all those memories. Sensor 2’s vast memory allows you to store numerous variations for each of your cars, something you could never do with an 8 model controller. For example, you can store a separate setup for your monster truck on a normal track, wet track, cold day, new tires, however many variations you want.

Fourth Servo Channel

Sensor 2 enables the fourth Servo channel on the Nomadio transceiver. This servo can be used for a variety of functions, and it is programmed exactly the same as the third servo channel. When was the last time an R/C radio company added a servo channel to their product after you owned it? Never!

This pro Numerous Additional Features

· New graphical vibration editor

· Improved sound setup editor

· Ability to import and export sound files to share audio themes with other users

· On start, Digital R/C Desktop now opens last file used

· Received settings are automatically saved to a file with your Sensor serial number

· Keyboard accelerators added for major commands

· Receiver settings are backed up and restored on software updates

· Look and feel improvements everywhere

· Faster radio connection times

· More reliable radio links: much less vulnerable to noise and interference

· Longer range in many situations

· Real time graphical link quality meter show N-Max in action

· Support for the new Version 2 receivers

· Support for dual head temperature sensor

· Improved event/telemetry handling

· Temperature alerts with separate alert levels on each temperature sensor

· “Alert over” events are now supported

· High and low values for each sensor are now displayed on the drive screen

· Consistent delay before alerts

· Hysteresis to prevent false alerts

· New 100 page User’s Manual

This If you already own a Nomadio Sensor ..

Congratulations on your wise purchase. For the first time in the R/C hobby, your radio controller just got a lot better AFTER YOU BOUGHT IT. And Nomadio is going to keep making it better for a long time.

If you are registered with Nomadio, your Digital RC Desktop software will offer to download it for you. If you have not registered your Sensor yet, now is the time! Simply run your Digital R/C Desktop software and follow the instructions.

We encourage you to visit our web sites to see the type of support Nomadio provides to its customers. You can access our main web site by clicking here. www.nomadio.com This site has a huge amount of information and photos of the Sensor and its accessories. We’re also very proud of our support website which you can see by clicking here. Unlike other R/C radio companies, Nomadio actually encourages our engineers to participate on the forums, answering questions and fielding ideas to improve the Sensor from you.

If you are thinking about buying a Sensor from your local hobby store, but wonder how you will get the Sensor 2 software, don’t worry – it’s automatic. The first time you run your Digital RC Desktop software, it will “phone home” on the Internet and find out about the new version. It will then ask you if you want to upgrade. How’s that for customer service?

And Don’t Forget ..

The Sensor still has all the great features that made it the breakthrough R/C product of 2005

· Integrated telemetry

· “Heads up” competition driving system with vibrator and sound alerts

· Unprecedented 3 year limited warranty

· Full graphic screen with backlight

· “Best of breed” ergonomics

· Longest battery life

· Online support from users and factory engineers

This Just for fun, a list of things that Sensor 2 obsoletes..

Nomadio’s Sensor integrates a lot of electronics and software to provide the best R/C driving machine in existence. It also makes a lot of other companies’ products obsolete, which is another reason why we chose to announce version 2 on Black Friday.

Our unfortunate competitors will remember this Black Friday as the day Nomadio took R/C to a whole new level.

Here’s a list of R/C accessories you’ll never need to buy when you have a Sensor.

· Temperature Gun - $99

· Frequency Crystals - $12 each

· Failsafe Unit - $25

· Add-On Wireless Telemetry - $199

· Bolt On DSS Radio Upgrade - $179

· 75 Mhz Channel Monitor - $59

· Replacement steering parts and bodies from runaways $???

Nomadio is changing everything about R/C. Believe it.

Top Drivers on board;
Hessel Roskam 1:5 scale WC 2003
Eric Poholsky 2005 NATC National Champion he has also been a ROAR National Champion

NEITHER are PAID to play.

One other point we may be ugly enough to keep sticky fingers off your radio.

All radios are STRONG plastic what people have issues are the looks and the seam in the radio. There is no first run, second run there is new software and smaller receivers. Right now if you buy a Nomadio Sensor you will get a V1 receiver and a free smaller V2 receiver. ALL Sensors can have the FREE 2.0 software upgrade.

What I am reading is people are missing the point on the HOPPING aspect of the 2.0 software plus the EXTRA power. Nomadio Sensor 2.0 is 20dBm.

Cool. The more racers running your radio whether they are champions or not is a good thing and will only help. I think guys using the radio and showing others how they work and what they can do is the way to go. Top racers help out as well. The more guys out promoting your radio the better.

The BIG thing is getting into YOUR car. "Super Stars of R/C" can drive a box and make it go fast. We want YOU to get to know how fast responding true Digital throughput is and how glitch free racing feels in a radio that can go for days with out a recharge. We want you to try before you buy.

So here is our deal in the USA. ask your local hobby shop to get in on our dealer demo program or YOUR local track to be a Nomadio Test Center.

Here are but a few tracks that are now Nomadio test Drive Centers.
SV Speedway www.onlinerc.com
Crystal Park www.crystalparkraceway.com
Fast Track RC www.fastrakrc.com

We know that once you FEEL the speed of the system your going to get the "Jones" for it.

Sure we could go out and hire top gun drivers but I rather first go direct to the people who are going to buy the radio because of what it does faster with more range then any other FHSSS 2.4Ghz R/C systems out there.

Oh and yes we are putting a team togeter but no paid drivers, yet LOL

Oh BTW just got this linky in from a distributor
Amazon now has Nomadio listed

A team is just one more way to get them out an about. I don't think you need to actually pay anyone to run the radio. I think most of the big guys get their radios for free or at a heavily discounted rate and get the new stuff a little sooner than the average customer.

I think the hobbyshop deal is great idea though. Its nice to be different sometimes.
