Graupner's redesigned MX range has now arrived in the form of the new MX-12, 16 and 20 radios - respectively 6, 8 and 12-channel units.

The transmitter is quite a stylish beast with etched side panels and a blue back-lit screen lending a classy persona. Programming is via two touch sensitive dials and all the usual mid-range capabilities are there along with full telemetric capability with receiver voltage permenantly displayed on the screen. Sensors available separately include a GPS module, RPM, and temperature units. Audio telemetry feedback can also be harnessed thanks to the earphone jack socket. 

With 20 model memories, this MX-16 also has an SD card socket and a USB connection means that software upgrades can be downloaded.

Available as a combo alongside an 8-channel GR-16 receiver it's £329.99 at all good Graupner stockists - look out for the RCM&E review soon.
