i read about it in an RC mag, but haven't found any other info on it... its not even on tamiya's site.... chances are it wont be cheap enough to make it worthwhile.... I would say just get a spektrum DX6 if you need a 6 ch radio... its guaranteed to have more features than the tamiya, probably wont cost much more, and is better for scale looks because the antenna doesn't need to extend outside the body at all.

I am not too sure if the DX6 will work with 1/14 Truck MFU system as it is digital trim not analog. That is why I was looking at their 6 channel analog transmitter.

It was great to hear some response as I thought I was the only one who heard about it.

It might seem like the TX is not a new item?

No, the Tamiya 6 channel transmitter is actually quite old.

The Tamiya MFUs work best with Futaba 4VWD. That is the radio Tamiya include with their full operation kits (for the semis). The Futaba 4VWD has been replaced by the 4GWD, which has digital trim levers, which does not work with some MFUs. The Futaba 4Yf is another cheap option that also works with the MFUs. The older Futaba FF6 is a 6 channel Futaba with analogue trim levers.

Actually any stick type radio with 4 channels (or more) that has analogue trim levers will work with a Tamiya MFU. Keep in mind that you will need to get a transmitter that is legal for ground use in your country.

I use a 25+ year old JR Pulse radio with my MFU and it works perfectly.
