Default New “7.0” Heng Long tanks!

Looks like the new 7.0 MFU Heng Long tanks are finally starting to hit the market, EBay. The 7.0 MFU appears to resembles the 6.1/S that has been available as a stand alone upgrade but was not available in their mass production tanks.

What does this mean if the 7.0 is a renamed 6.1/S? Servo recoil and elevation is now supported, higher motor amp ratings, higher voltage ratings and hopefully an improved transmitter. Personally I also hope HL listen to the MANY request for further improvements to their battle system to be more Tamiya compatible. Have to wait and see if that hope comes true.

I should be getting my hands on one of the new 7.0 tanks soon and will be sure to tear it apart, beat it up a bit and report back what I find wrong.....or right.

The 7.0 also is supposed to have the function to turn off neutral turns and adjust the turning radius with 20 steps of adjustment.

Well upon further investigation the 7.0 is not a rebrand/named 6.1s. It seems to be a completely new MFU altogether. It sits somewhere between the 6.0s and 6.1s features wise. Seem HL decided to focus on FPV rather then other features. Looks like the “TOY” side wins out again. Oh well to be expected.....

I will report back when I have one in hand, although my excitement in trying one out has fallen off quite a bit.
