Airtronics Celebrates 40 Years with Limited Edition MT-4S

Airtronics Celebrates 40 Years with Limited Edition MT-4S

We’re already fans of the MT-4S (see our review in the November 2014 issue), but in “40th Anniversary” mode it’s especially attractive. In addition to the standard MT-4S good stuff (see long list below), the anniversary model includes a custom steering wheel, “piano black” finish, RX-472 SSL receiver plus a special-edition RX-471 receiver, and  a snazzy transmitter bag with Sanwa 40th anniversary embroidering. Very nice, and a good deal at just $100 over the cost of the “standard” MT-4S with one receiver–it’s like getting the bag for free.

Airtronics MT4S 40th


From Airtronics:

This is an Airtronics Limited Edition 40th Anniversary MT-4S Super 2.4GHz FH4T 4-Channel Telemetry-Capable** Radio System w/RX-472 Super Response Receiver, Dual-ID RX471 Receiver, Carry Case & Sanwa Synchronized Link. This beautiful limited edition radio includes a beautiful Piano-Black finish and custom wheel. Act NOW, when this supply is gone, they’re gone! This is TRULY limited edition!

Limited Offer Get This Beautiful Special-Finish MT-4S with Two Receivers and a Commemorative Carry Case!

This is an Airtronics MT-4S 40th Anniversary Edition 2.4GHz FH4T 4-Channel Telemetry-Capable** Radio System. For 40 years, Sanwa/Airtronics has been supplying the world with leading technology. To commemorate this achievement in the hobby industry, Airtronics is offering this special, limited edition of the MT-4S.

Unique to This Edition:

  • MT-4S Transmitter In a Unique “Piano Black” Finish with Custom Wheel
  • Includes 40th Anniversay Carry Case
  • Includes RX-472 SSL Capable Receiver
  • Includes Additional, Special-Edition, Pro-Competition RX-471 Dual-ID Receiver*

*Allows you bind two separate transmitters to the receiver at the same time. By being able to store two unique bind codes, the RX-471 Dual ID Version Super Response receiver allows you bind up to two compatible transmitters to the receiver at the same time. This feature is ideal for endurance racing or for vehicle testing, by allowing two different drivers with their own transmitters to control the model at any one time. It’s no longer necessary to hand your transmitter to someone else or to stop to change transmitter batteries. Simply turn off the first transmitter, then turn on the second transmitter and keep driving!

Items Required, But Not Included:

  • 4 ‘AA’ Alkaline or NiCd/NiMH cells or 2S LiPo or 2S LiFe Battery Pack for Transmitter
  • Servos and/or ESC We recommend using digital servos and ESCs that support a high frame-rate whenever possible. Due to the extremely high frame-rate of the MT-4S transmitter and RX-472 Super Response receiver, analog servos and many ESCs may not be compatible when used in SHR or SSR servo operating mode. To prevent compatibility issues, use analog servos only in NOR servo operating mode. If your ESC does not work in SHR servo operating mode, use NOR servo operating mode. Any brand and type of digital servo can be used in NOR or SHR servo operating mode. Only Airtronics/Sanwa SRG series digital servos are compatible for use with SSR servo operating mode.

**Telemetry Capable Airtronics receiver required (RX-461 or RX-462) for full Telemetry capability.
