Default 3PK vs. The R-1!!! DA DA DAAAAA!!!

ok so basically wat the title says. Any comments on which one is better and why? Make sure u have proof though y say which one is cause some ppl just "bc it is ( cause i own it)". that doesnt help any. Seriously Im in the market and am in a jam on which one 2 get. They are both the same price to which makes it even harder.


Comments?

The R1 looks wicked if not over done, I held one and didn't like the way it felt and although it has no more features than the 3PK, its WAY harder to program to the point of needing your manual to change expo. I will stick with the 3PK myself. Plus the R1 is getting old, the only update in like 4 years has been gold trim.

i think the r1 is a gr8 radio, and just like most things, once you go through the manual, its easy as pie. I sit and stare at by buddies 3pk the same as you probably do the r1 LOL.

The futaba one is nice though, probably a better radio, newer design, backlit, lighter

Futaba makes some great radios. I used to only use Futaba. But i bought an Ko PropoEX-10 Helios. I wanted the 3PK but the Heios had so many features. You might want to look at the Helios it is really easy to program and is faster than the 3PK.

But the R-1 is really hard to program.

So what does Ko Propo call its High Response System (HRS) or accelerated FM system? How much faster is it than the T3PK and please provide a link to the specific claim, manual and articles so I can read it online? Does it require all digital servos as well for its "speedy" system to fully function? Thanks in advance.

^^

that is what my friend Jeff told me when i was about to get my 3pk he said to get the Ko Propo because it was faster.
But the Digital Servos are nice. I wish they came with the Remote for how much money it is. Does the 3PK come with High Speed servos or the S3003??

Perhaps, Jeff should provide all of us with his verified source claiming that the Ko Propo Ex-10 is faster than the T3PK because the only ad I've read claims it is 30% faster than the Mars-R. The same ad then specifically details the Futaba 3PK, which "is the only system available with an HRS (High Response Speed) transmission mode". In other words, the same ad does not claim that the Ex-10 is faster than the T3PK.

Exactly, because one is paying for a radio, not unwanted servos.
