Roco MultiMAUS Pro - Wireless

Roco have announced a wireless MultiMAUS.

The advance information we have from Roco is in German so the details are a bit sketchy. It looks like a complete starter system comprising the base unit/amplifier, Rocomotion software & the first handset (which looks like the wired Multimaus, except that it's blue) has a RRP of 399.00 euro, with extra handsets for 199.00 euro.

It look very much like a radio system & not IR.

I'll post more details when I get the English version catalogue (probably in a few days).

UPDATE: Info and links to product, a couple of posts down.

This looks really good. I suspect it may have more than the regular MultiMaus as the price for the handsets is a bit higher. But it seems a good deal getting the computer control software too. L0ook forward to hearing more.
Werner, that link only seemed to have the information in German.

Does sound like a very good system though.

Yes I tried that going via the products menu and it was still in German. I have now tried again going through the bit on the lower right and it has come up in English. But I cannot locate the new system on this listing.

Thanks for that Rob, got it that time.

Sounds like the best and cheapest way to start into computer control.

This is not specific to Roco, but once the channels are all used up it could be quite amusing.
Do we know whether these systems choose their channels randomly, or will someone have to control it at such an event as is done for standard R/C equipment?
You could have such a laugh with that if you took your own radio controller down to a exhibition.
