Dear Friends,

I have just purchased the Kyosho Red Limited Edition EX-5UR ASF 2.4Ghz remote controller. Anyone have had any prior experience to this particular controller or any issues?

Im waiting for the online shop to ship my controller out to me. Cant wait!

don't have one... but from what i've read... i believe it works just the same as the black version... only this comes in red... :D

it's a good upgrade from the kt-18

Except that it looks realy ugly, I guess its the same as the black one.
I have the black one for a year and a half now, never any problems with it.

I raced with it for almost a year before upgrading to a EX-1UR.
I have no complain since it is a big one step above KT-18 with so much more in set up until you ready to move on up the ladder in getting more serious about racing.
Only issue I found out at a big Regional event with 50+ people, Radio like my EX-1UR or other higher end brand over powered the EX-5UR which I end up loosing my Bind right before one of my qualifier on the driver stand because I turned on my car too late.

the new red version should include a button move for tiki tiki initiation. if it's not the red limited, it's the now standard red version. while it's not attractive, i'm getting a red one myself. i know i'll never loose it :) i don't really mind the red so much anyway, i just think of it as an MZR brand just like the red chassis set.

Thanks guys for chiming in, I guess I made the right choice. Actually Im only playing Mini Z, haven had much time for other stuff. I find the black ex-5ur not so aesthetically pleasing but I found the red one very nice. I guess I will only find out when I receive it. :)

Cheers and have a great week ahead!

According to the EX-5UR manual, the ET4 Lever is the 3rd channel control. (Bottom switch next to the trigger) - That lever is on the black version as well.

i said button move... i was told they repositioned the button for easier reach.

I was reading and I think both the Black and the Red EX-5UR should be exactly the same, inclusive of the tiki tiki button.

The Kyosho webby with the Red Limited Edition MR-03 will indicate that to make use of the tiki tiki mode, you need an EX-5UR Remote to activate and use
this tiki tiki mode. So I think both red and black should have the tiki tiki button.

I would just get rid of the hard rubber wheel & go for a smaller Foam one off the EX1-UR with adaptor hub. This was my previous radio.

Nice! The aftermarket wheel is nice! BTW the look of the EX-5UR is growing on me. I just took delivery of my EX-5UR. Pictures will be up shortly!
