  News items

 Graced with RC hobby shop 

 After year’s of rumours, news has reached us that Kyosho has been acquired by an investment fund with plans for a restructure of the business.

Sources in Japan point to a slow down in domestic sales as the culprit behind the “sluggish performance”. Japan’s Nikkei stock market published the news, announcing purchaser, Shinsei Bank’s plans to rebuild management by boosting expansion of Asian sales channels & customers in growth markets. Former President Aki Suzuki will serve on in an advisory role to the company whilst Katsumi Watanabe is already listed as President on Kyosho’s own website. Interestingly in the company milestone timeline, it reads, 2018: Kyosho “Reborn”.

RC Word of the Week (brought to you by RC Driver Mag)

Glitch
Otherwise known as radio interference, a glitch refers to a momentary lapse in signal transmission. There are external sources that cause glitches, (like overhead power lines,) but consistent glitching is most likely the result of something in the vehicle itself, such as metal-to-metal rubbing as you might find with control linkages.
