I do not own one myself but I have heard nothing but goog things about it. It has all the settings 99% of people need and when you need that other 1% you can upgrade to the M-8!

Nitrofreak, what did you end up paying (in Canada?) for the mx-3, and how did the price compare with the mx-3S which has synthsized freqs. (no crystals).

WOW.....

I had no idea Airtronics was joining the Synth parade, other than the M-8 module!!!

Finally/hopefully, the JR XS3 has some competition in it's price range. I was hoping the Futaba 3PM-FS would be out by now, but it's been delayed AGAIN (August??), so it's nice to see another $200 synth (assuming Airtronics has their kaka together & gets it out when they say they will)!!

Tower shows this model, but they don't list any features/specs. Where can I take a better look at this radio online??

I was just looking for the specs on this radio myself....Hell, even Airtronics' web site doesn't show any specs[:@] You would think of all places Airtronics would put up the specs....[]

That really ticks me off....how is anyone supposed to compare....I mean, how much trouble would that be....???.....NOT MUCH MORE!!!!

yea its kinda odd that tower has them scheduled to come in anytime soon but they dont have any specs at all for them. But you never no, I wouldnt be suprised if the date got pushed back quite a bit.
