Kyosho’s new dNaNo 1/43 mini racers
The dNaNo is an all new car from Kyosho that is unlike anything else in RC.
>> 1/43-scale so it can easily fit in the palm of your hand.
>> Operated by a 2.4GHz radio system so there are no crystals to fuss with.
>> Each car has a built-in lap counter and each car has its own unique ID number. After a race, you will be able to review your results for the race and also bring up information on the entire life of your car.
>> Powered by a LiPo battery pack, which Kyosho told me is very safe and will not burn.
>> Optional light set will be available.
>> Ports on the chassis allow you to plug in an optional traction control unit to make the car easier to control when cornering at speed.
>> The car can be plugged into a computer so driving profiles can be customized.
>> Each car comes completely assembled and includes a chassis for display purposes that has the true to scale wheels and tires mounted on it.
>> A starter set will include the 2.4GHz transmitter, LiPo battery pack and charger. (These items are not included with the car)
>> Transmitter only requires 4AAA batteries.
>> 8 different bodies will be available, with new ones coming out each month there after.
>> The bodies look absolutely amazing with exacting detail…to the point where I can see diecast fans buying the car just for display.
This is a very new product for Kyosho and as we obtain more information we will be sure to pass it along to you.
Here is the chassis. This car is so small that it uses the same type of screws that are used in wristwatches.
The underside of the chassis and the blue rectangle is the lap counter.
Here is the tiny LiPo battery pack that is easy to take in and out of the car and it is impossible to install it incorrectly.
The 2.4GHz radio that is powere by only 4AAA batteries and is loaded with features.
Following are 5 of the bodie styles that will be available. They look incredible in person!!!
1500 LiPo Receiver Pack with hard case. A flat 2400mAh pack is also available.
5100mAh Rocket Pack stick pack. This is a true 5100mAh battery pack. The cells are a little longer so that obviously makes the entire pack slightly larger than a typical 6-cell pack, but its width is exactly the same.
4600mAh and 5300mAh Super High Output cells.
Graphite Edition 3200 3cell 11.1 volt. This three cell pack will instantly add 50% more power to your machine while maintaining easy fitment into most vehicles without the need for chassis adjustment. The target for this LiPo back are the Traxxas VXL high power brushless vehicles like the Rustler, Stampede and Bandit and it even includes Traxxas plugs.
CRF 12, 21 on-road, 21 off-road and 28 truggy engines. Team Orion brought their popular CRF technology to this new group of high power engines. Silver head engines are for on-road and the red heads are for off-road vehicles.
