I agree with flyboy, futaba better. The rc guys i now mostly prefer futaba. Airtronics does not seem to have the consistent quality of Fut., They had some problems in the past. I bought an Airtronics Heli Transmitter once, And the On/Off switch on it was Bad!!!!!!!I'm talking about a Brand New Xmtr Right out of the Box. Taht XMTR went Back to The Hobby Store IMMediately!! You did not say Why you feel you need Three Channels???? 3-Channel Radio's are much more expensive, and you will probably never use all the features.
