What's old is new again! The COLT takes RC nostalgia to new levels of sophistication, reliability, and ease.

Colt 6 Channel 2.4GHz Retro System from JR

Housed in a vintage Heathkit looking all aluminum case, the COLT TX might look like a vintage transmitter, but looks ARE deceiving.

Lift the lower cover plate, and you will find a fully capable, 20 model memory, 2.4GHz DMSS fully equipped 6 channel transmitter that will allow you to pilot your vintage models with a level of programmability and reliability that wasn't possible back in the day.

Hand Built, and in limited production, the COLT’s 3 Model Type is capable of flying your entire fleet of vintage models. The cost for this unit is $899.99.

JR’ COLT DMSS system is Retro, Reliable, and Ready to Go.

Dust off that old Kaos, Cricket, or Hobie Hawk, and head out to the field with the retro looking, yet ultra-reliable JR COLT 2.4GHz DMSS system, and take a step back to the future.

Yeah, just figured out it's JR and modified post. Very cool indeed but $900 for an XG6 in a fancy case... Take a look here as well.

Looks nice, but I've got an old EK Logictrol radio and a Kraft that I want to switch over the electronics from a Spektrum 5 2.4 channel radio, and use for parkflyers. i don't care about model memory on them for now. One of these days I will get around to it.
