The Graupner X-8E sets new standards - not just a revision, but rather a new generation of Graupner Colt remote controls.
The 4-channel transmitter has 35 model memories, 5 mixers (2 linear, 3 curves) as well as 5 storable setup profiles. Of course, the X-8E uses the proven Graupner 2.4 GHz bi-directional HoTT technology. The Colt is based on HoTT V2 and can be operated with Telemetry servos. This gives you, depending on the telemetry servo, information on overload, current and voltage fluctuations. Genius Telemetry ESCs are available and can show you the speed, rpm, voltage, ESC and Motor temperature.
With the 3.5-inch color touch display, you keep all telemetry data and settings in mind. The TFT LCD display offers a resolution of 480 x 320 pixels. The touch display responds sensitively and allows the intuitive operation of the completely revised menu. Adjust the main menu to your needs, and add, for example, menu items that are important to you.
Directly via the transmitter, you can set servo, sub-trim, dual rate, brake rating adjustment (B.R.A.), steering speed, and ABS.
The Colt transmitter has a voice output, which works both via the built-in loudspeaker, as well as via headphones. Furthermore, a strong vibration alarm is installed, which warns you noticeably.
The integrated patch antenna has an optimized beam angle. This significantly increases the range and reliability.
The X-8E is more than just an RC car transmitter: it has special modes for crawlers, tracks and boat.
The Graupner X-8E is perfectly adapted to your own requirements and preferences. This allows the transmitter to be set up for both right-handers and left-handers. The steering wheel can be adjusted in 3D. The inclination of the steering wheel can be adjusted in 30 ° increments.
The X-8E has two direct buttons, which lead you directly into freely adjustable menus. You can also assign keys to up to 19 additional functions.
The Graupner X-8E is your remote control with the separately available decorative decals as well as the 8-color adjustable LEDs; Just as you want them to be.
The Colt transmitter comes with an extra-strong 5000 mAh LiPo battery which can be easily charged via the included micro-USB charger. Furthermore the package includes the excellent GR-8 Race receiver (No. 33504), a 4 GB micro SD card and all cables.
With the supplied USB cable, you keep your X-8E always up-to-date. On the Graupner website you will find all updates for the free download in the menu point Service / Help / Updates.
If you want to keep track of all telemetry data on your AndroidTM smartphone, we recommend the free Graupner App HoTT Viewer. The app can be found at Google Play Store . For this, you need the external Bluetooth module (No. 8351). This is where you transfer all telemetry data wirelessly to your mobile phone.
