I voted 3PK, that's what I got but I don't know how you think they both feel the same??? IMO I found the M-11 to be a little top heavy and the plastic didn't seem that durable at all, the grip was a little "off" for my liking...so I went with the 3PK. As far as features are concerned, one thing about the M-11 that I wish the 3PK had was a button lock, so you can't accidentally press a button, change something and not know what you did. It's all personal preference, there are more than enough features on both radios to keep even the most button happy RC'er occupied...all depends on you. Grab yourself some copies of the manuals (online) and compare them, only you will know which one is for you.

You can always "lock" yourself out of certain screens so somethings can't be changed.

True enough, but sometimes "things" happen, like you ask your buddy to pass you your 3PK and he grabs it in a way that presses a trim button or something along those lines. That's all I mean...

Cheers

I think I'm trying Airtronics this time because it's 20 bucks cheeper adn it's newer so it won't be replaced with something new in a few months
It's also 4 chanel has a bigger screen and some other features like a blue backlight
I have smaller hands so the M11 felt more comfortable
Will my futaba servo plug fit the reciever?
and the plastic not being durable? I can control my tempor unlike some people and take very good care of my things. my cheep-o t2ph has no scratches on it that I made unless it was setting it down on the cement My car only has a few scratches on it while most peoples is like all scratches

Too badI can't afford the spektrum system just yet

I have to go with the M11 now because they don't have it at hobbytown and i'd still be saving 7 bucks because of shipping
