Default When did CEN switch from the Airtronics Radio to Skyion

I just received my CEN matrix buggy and one of the main reasons I bought it was due to the high quality Airtronics Radio it came with. Every store I have seen and even the box shows it comes with an Airtronics Radio but it didn't.

If you are going to make a switch that is fine, but change your box art and make sure your stores are aware of the change. I did not get what I was expecting to get. The high quality radio is one of the reasons I went with this buggy over others.

Yeah the Skyion radio does have a real cheap feel to it but it works OK. To their credit it does have EPA, model memory, and ABS which most RTR radios don't. I thought the MG 16 is a decent enough truck to warrant a better radio system so I put a Futaba PCM receiver in it. My son is the primary driver and I have to say the truck can really be dialed in nicely with a good radio system, he controls it with my old radio, a 3PJS and I have it programmed into my 3PKS also. For what it's worth I put the Skyion in a beat up OFNA buggy that I let my friends use or just bring as a backup for a long day of bashing, it's not bad as long as you use a failsafe but I wouldn't trust it without one.
