Nomadio™ introduces the next generation of R/C controller - The “React™”. 100% Digital Control. Fastest reacting R/C radio there is, Period.

Two way all digital communication utilizing Frequency Hopping Digital Spread Spectrum (FHDSS) Technology.

Philadelphia, PA—August, 2006,—Nomadio™ ( announced today that it has expanded its line of Radio Control (R/C) systems with another landmark product for the hobbyist market. The new control system is called “React™”. For the first time, R/C enthusiasts will be able to choose a high end radio with unmatched pure digital speed at a fraction of the cost of other brands' mid-priced radios. React™ transmits at 100Hz which makes it the fastest reacting R/C radio made. Furthermore, Nomadio standard 100mW RF output in FHDSS conforms to world wide ISM radio regulations.

Like the Sensor™ by Nomadio, the React™ can transmit telemetry back from the car as it is driven. The React™ system supports “feelers” that give the driver real time feedback of the car’s speed, battery voltage, and engine temperature. Unique to the RC market, the React™ radio system is software based; its capabilities may be altered / upgraded when it is connected to a personal computer and the Internet via the built in USB port.

Most R/C radios operate on 30 channels in the 75 MHz band. Other 2.4GHz radios are limited to fewer than 40 channels. The React™ system combines error-resistant spread spectrum and frequency hopping technologies, providing each radio with a unique, secure virtual channel allowing hundreds of simultaneous users.

Nomadio CEO Alex Gizis says, “The React™ targets both the top end racer and the back yard basher. React™ touts glitch-less performance of the 2.4 GHz band, unmatched speed and program flexibility not offered in other radios. The React™ is a top end full featured R/C controller with a mid line radio price.

looks like they stole the molds from the multiplex radios... why can't they just make a normal looking radio that appeals to their customers... they would have sold 10 times the amount... i know i would have gotten one

So is this new radio "better" than the Sensor? What's the difference besides looks? From what I can gather the signal technology has changed a little but everything else is the same(?) Don't know which I should buy now, this one or the Sensor. Dammit!

The Multiplex radios are VERY comfortable.

If it wasn't for lack of DSM I may have still been using mine.

I wonder if Hitec is now involved with Nomadio, as Hitec owns Multiplex and that is most assuredly a Multiplex design...albeit in black instead of grey/green like the Multiplex were.

I will be sticking with my Helios..but this is a step in the right direction for Nomadio.

I think they just bought the mold from somewhere in China. It is the same concept of JR's new radio looking very similar to the KO Helios.
