Hat-tip to RCNews.de for these pics of Hitec‘s upcoming Lynx 4S frequency-hopping 2.4GHz radio system, which will put the brand back on the pro-pistol map.

Pro-Line’s Phantom buggy-body lineup is about to include its first 1/8 scale shell, designed specifically for the Tekno EB48.2. The Phantom’s cab-forward styling is in full effect, and a removable stability fin is in place. You can expect the usual genuine GE Lexan construction with overspray film, window masks, and decals.
