    MINI-Z compatible receiver unit included

    This transmitter/receiver set includes the MINI-Z EVO Receiver Unit EX-NEXT MC-8, which can be used with the MINI-Z EVO. The evolved EX-NEXT's high-speed response can be used with the MINI-Z EVO.


    Antenna less, lightweight, compact Master unit.

    The weight of the master unit has been reduced to the utmost limit. Achieves both optimal weight balance and usability. Furthermore, by making the antenna short and compact, outstanding maneuverability has been achieved. Furthermore, the LCD unit can be installed by rotating it 90 ° according to the driver's preference.


    Equipped with a new standard "XT" that achieves the fastest communication speed in the industry​.

    You can choose and use from "XT advanced mode" which is the world record response for one way communication and "XT telemetry mode" which is compatible for Telemetry (2 ways communication).

    In addition, starting with Update Ver. 2.00, a new "MINI-Z Mode" has been implemented to support MINI-Z.


    MINI-Z Mode

    EX-NEXT was newly developed by reviewing the design of the control and communication systems from the ground up. It achieves the industry's fastest communication speed and high resolution. In MINI-Z Mode, it outperforms FHSS such as the EX-RR, which has been the fastest. The EX-NEXT's high-speed communication increases the density of information that can be transmitted to the machine. You can experience the "fine and smooth control feeling" brought about by unprecedented high-definition, high-resolution control.

    *MINI-Z mode does not support the Telemetry function.


    XT Advanced Mode, XT Telemetry Mode

    This product is not only for MINI-Z. When combined with the KR-420XT receiver can also be used with general-purpose RC cars without the need to change the firmware. The combination of the ultra-fast XT Advanced Mode, the bi-directional XT Telemetry Mode, and the serial servo 4S allows you to experience the dramatic evolution of high-speed performance from FHSS. For details, please refer to the product page of the set with KR-420XT.

    Please note: Switching the RF mode

    You can switch between XT Advanced Mode, XT Telemetry Mode, and MINI-Z Mode by setting the RF Mode in EX-NEXT. (Set the RF mode to "MINI-Z Mode" when using the MINI-Z.) Also, the default setting is "XT telemetry mode", so if you want to use it in MINI-Z Mode, please change it to "MINI-Z Mode" first.

    RF mode can be set for each model memory in order to be able to use it on a variety of machines. When adding a new model memory, please be sure to set the RF mode first. For details on how to set the RF mode, please refer to the "EX-NEXT Instruction Manual".
    When the RF mode is set to "MINI-Z Mode", the LED on the EX-NEXT unit repeats "blue -> light blue -> blue -> light blue" alternately, so please check it.
