Spektrum AVC

iHobby is here yet again and we have an exciting new technology that is making a debut at the show. AVC, or Active Vehicle Control, has been designed by Spektrum™ to help lessen the difficulty and reduce the learning curve when first learning to drive an RC car. Not only will it help take your first steps but it will adapt and grow as you do, providing you with more and more confidence as you drive. Derek Wagner has been involved with AVC, both from the technology-side with Spektrum and the implementation-side with Vaterra® and the new Hälix™ 4WD monster truck. Derek sat down with us to discuss the new AVC technology, the new vehicles it will be featured in, how it works and more. We also reflect on the other new items debuting at iHobby, the just-concluded 2013 IFMAR World Championships and the Soaring Masters.

The Spektrum DX4R PRO

The new Spektrum™ DSMR™ technology has been recently introduced as a frequency-agile system optimized for surface RC applications. Debuting in the DX4S, racers soon voiced that they'd like to see DSMR technology in a pure race-bread transmitter. The DX4R PRO is that new radio, featuring DSMR technology designed specifically with the racer in mind. In addition to new technology, the DX4R PRO also features a new, redesigned adjustable trigger, new graphical mixes for MOA, other crawler-specific mixes and programming, and everything else drivers have come to know and love about the DX3R PRO. Joining us in studio are Spektrum representatives Blake Good and John Adams, here to discuss the DX4R PRO and give some more racer-specific information regarding DSMR technology, including a look inside the new SR2000 receiver announced alongside the DX4R PRO.
