Default RC4WD XR2, XR3, XR4 2.4Ghz Radio Latest Info





Designed from the ground up.

We are in mass production mode already with our next gen radio.

XR2 will be a basic radio with receiver, without LCD, all manual knobs. This will also be the radio that will be shipping with most of our RTR trucks. Retail price should be around $39.99, making it one of the most affordable 2.4Ghz radio available.

XR3 will be just like XR2 but 3 channel instead. Retail price should be around $49.99

XR4 will be one of the most advanced radio on the market right now with 4 channel and big LCD screen. 3rd and 4th channel will have 3 position switch. Our next gen receiver is also 30% more compact. This new radio is also more green now, only need 4AA to power it up. Target price will be around $89.99 with receiver.

We will be start shipping slowly within 1-2 weeks, more updates on our website. (Hopefully google remove the warning soon)

How about an XR4 with manual knobs like the XR2 and 3 but then develop an XR4I which has the fancy electronics? Just an idea

I'll end up with an XR3 at some point anyway,

Man, you reading my mind. I was thinking about a XR4i yesterday. Yes we will continue research and work on improvement on radio and variation. We need to get this one out first and sell some, then we will release other version for you guys.

An other question : Is the XR3's 3rd channel 3 positions switch, like the XR4 ? Or just On/Off ?

Is that the actual color of the XR4 or just a prototype?
For $90 I will definitely look at one when I'm in the market again for a radio.
