Thumbs up Airtronics MT4 Pistol radio w/telemetry

Looks like Spectrum is going to have to competition ,Airtronics is releasing the MT-4 2.4g pistol radio w/telemetry.Looks like it going to sell for $249.99 and they are saying a February release date.

More information to come....

This looks like it will be a great mid-priced addition in the Sanwa family especially considering it can use all of the fast FHSS-2, FHSS-3, SSR receivers and Telemetry to boot. (unlike Futaba's new 4PL). Hopefully they will let out some more info so we compare it to the M11X and others. I am in the market for a new Radio system.

aside from the telemetry and the antenna on the handle..does it have the same functions/features as the m11x?

is the telemetry also limited to a certain range just like the dx3s?

Telemetry is overrated. Almost every driver at my local track who had telemetry at some point stopped using it. that being said the radio is a very nice update and I'm sure will sell well. Makes me curious to see the successor to the M11x

Looks like there's no backlight for the screen. Looks decent though.

Speed wise suppose to be about same as m11x has SSR capability.I bought one just to see if I like the feel better then my m11x(short guy small hands) I like the menu set up from what I have seen.

If you run electric cars, is it possible to monitor the main battery voltage (not just receiver pack voltage) with this radio?

Default Airtronics MT-4

This has dual Temp. Monitor both esc and motor temps, but it only comes with one temp sensor. which is more important to monitor? or just buy a second sensor? I also want to know if this will give the battery voltage not just the receiver voltage. This radio looks a little cheap but the price is right, so DX3R Pro + SR3300T or Airtronics MT-4? any recommendations for 1/8 onroad electric? Thanks
