Sorry for the crappy picture but here is the translation - not that it makes much sense or provides any real information!

Maybe just a special edition but the timing is right considering the rest of the line has been updated. Whats next a replacement for the mx-v.

Yep, same spec radio but factory fitted with stuff you want (soft spring, drop down) but doesn't include all the extra grips, hook, etc etc

No LiFe battery is a bit crap though. Uses 4xAA unless you buy one I presume.

The M12 model is long in the tooth. I can't wait to replace mine with a newer model.

I just ordered this radio. I wonder if it's exact same case as the M12S? I'd like to order a wrap.

I gotta say, $400 is pretty damn tempting to sell my mt-44 and grab one of these lol

I'm looking at picking this up but have to buy it online. If you could post your findings and thoughts on it would be great.

I'm debating between this and an mt-44. Any idea what extra features this has over the mt-44? I race electric so im wondering if the extra cost is justified. I need a couple of rx as well so am I better off with an mt44 and an extra rx vs buying this.

While I haven't spent the time to compare each feature between the two, the description on the M12-RS states that it is essentially the same as the M12s with a few more basic features like screen lighting and spring tension to keep cost down. So I was just tempted by the fact that for $60 more (than the mt-44)I could essentially have an m12s with just a few less bling features.
