All of the latest HPI kits are now fitted with the comfortable and feature-packed HPI TF-40 2.4GHz radio system for supreme control and confidence! The latest digital 2.4GHz radio technology allows you to confidently drive your HPI kit with other drivers without worrying about things like frequencies or radio conflicts. The radio features a pistol-grip design with drop-down steering wheel, 3 channel functionality, easy carry handle, fold-down aerial, end point adjustments, servo reversing and steering dual rate. It's also extremely lightweight due to it requiring only four AA batteries. This is a fully-featured, lightweight, 3-channel radio with advanced ergonomic features and total adjustability.
Set the radio up for your car with custom features like servo reversing, centre trim, end point adjustments, dual rate and more. Only 4 AA batteries are required to power the TF-40, so it's light in your hands, and the drop-down steering wheel makes it comfortable to hold. With the adjustable, built-in failsafe feature, you will even be protected just in case the radio batteries run out of power or become disconnected.
