I hardly believe that Tamiya owns all the right for any scale copy of the Leo2...

Anyway, a 2.4 Ghz Heng Long transmitter is a novelty, I wonder if they integrated the receiver into the Rx18 as Taigen did, though...

And this an issue why? Tamiyas offering is excellent so if they've copied it well all should be good!

Well Tammy's one was waaaaay out of anyone's usual budget, therefore this is a welcome addition.

Not everyone can afford nearly a grand for the Tamiya. If you want a t-90 (T-95 was cancelled) go cut up a ztz-99!

Remember Mato's Sherman is now 2.4 Ghz, maybe that's the new board?

I'll wait until Mato has them in stock.

There is probably is an IR version. Just not available yet. I am a little concerned seeing all these integrated 2.4 ghz electronic systems forcing you to use the factory radio, which will be useless if you want to do any serious IR RC battling.

Instead you will have to rip it out throw in the bin and buy new electronics. Very frustrating as it would cost Heng Long very little more to do IR correctly.

Man, I must be a throwback. I am happy it is airsoft. With all that turret space I can make this into a fine shooter.

Good to see new tanks coming out, and people have been clamoring for more modern armor. Now there's an option to those that couldn't participate due to Tam's higher cost/quality.

Tempting as that is, I'll wait for the review. I want to see suspension and idler mounts before I dive into a big tank like this :P

Does it really matter? I mean are there tons of people that are running HL IR? Barrel recoil would be the only thing retained from a stock IR setup, right?
Just curious.

Yes HL IR is almost pointless except you get the recoil

Makes two of us...prefer airsoft as well. Would like to see how HL's 2.4 GHz compares to Taigen's. If it's the same, maybe it will bring down the cost of the upgrade. Since I don't do airsoft, I don't mind the HLboard being tied to its transmitter...especially since I need one transmitter per tank if I'm going to have family tank battles. I wouldn't mind them making boards specific to the tank model with the right sounds, though.
