That's quite a margin! It'll be interesting to know what other refinements there are. Hopefully some of the software tweaks will be available for the M12 and Exzes Z users to upgrade. I guess this wouldn't improve the latency on the current models but all the other improvements would be nice!

Looks like it's coming with the new 481/482 receivers with build in antennas.

I wonder if they have made it lighter, one of the M12's main points of criticism (and success of the MT4s).

No color screen, preserved for the M13?

Yup, no color screen, no video playback, no 3g built-in modem, no onboard cam for cool selfie "me at track"

It is always the the most rewarding thing to make fun on others behalf, I do that myself occasionally

But, my "no color screen" was meant as an indication of how far Sanwa is from issuing the M13. Did the M12S had e.g. a color screen to bring it on par with the Futaba 4PX, then you could assume that the M12S could be on the market for a longer duration of time. But now it seems that the M13 could be closer around the corner with these minor updates to the M12S.

And then again, why make an M12S if the M13 was just around the corner anyway, why not just put out an M13?

You're right why would they come Out with the m12s, if the m13 is just around the corner, I think the came out with m12s so they can have a lmore time to design the m13 physical appearance because if you think about it how much more can sanwa do to change their design without losing their particular sanwa looks and without crossing other companies radios designs

Personally I see a color screen as nothing more than a marketing gimmick!! No real value IMHO.

Earphone jack is a good idea! I can't hear my alarm when there are 10 nitro cars on the track.
