Kyosho just put out some slightly blury, pictures of their new Mini-Z MR-03 VE Brushless vehicle. The brushless system will be supplied by Orion, and should be shipping around January. People have been waiting for a brushless version for years. Kyosho claims part of the delay was waiting for technology to get to the point where they could incorporate the brushless speed controller onto a board with their radio electronics.
