Default Need opinions on Radios

I'm stuck on witch radio set-up to go with. Its between the new Airtronics M-11 or the Futaba 3PK. If any one could tell why one is better than the other it would be nice. Thanks[&:] Or why they like theres versus the the other pick.

It's all just preference. Just go to the LHS and hold both and see which one feels better. If you don't have access to one, go on their websites and compare until you find which one suits your needs better. You really can't go wrong with either so you could also flip a coin? haha

Not sure how much $$ you are going to spend, but IMO the Spektrum 2.4 ghz system was the best investment I have made. No worries about interference, someone else being on my channel, and I am able to have the radio on in the pits during a race. Awesome just does not do it justice!

I agree.

My arsenal, Left to Right:
Futaba T3PK (PCM/AM),
Nomadio Sensor (2.4GHz with Real-Time Telemetry), and
JR XS3 (Synthesized FM).

I have the 3pk pcm so I am a little partial to it; great radio but that is my opinion. Hold both of them they both have a very different feel. The M11 has a few more features but the 3pk has pcm, ppm, AND hrs at the press of a few buttons. plus the both have the ability to add spectrum 2.4g later on.
