I got an E-Mail form horrizon this morning and it seems that they are pulling out all the stops with the Typhoon, no longer do they use a proprietary 27Mhz radio, but a industry standard 72 Mhz with dual rates.

Yeah, I saw it. WOW, looks like Parkzone is working hard to get the market. That's an incredible deal TX and all; 72mHz nonethe less. Clearly they know the market and have been listening to our complaints.
