Default Which Radio mx-3 or xr/xs3

Just kind of trying to decide which radio to get. Ive been looking at eiether the Airtronics mx-3 or JR xr3i or possibly even the xs3

I realize the xs is a lot more expensive, but between the xr3 and mx-3, which does everyone suggest. I will use this with my rc10gt for dirt racing

I have the xs3 and the mx3, I prefer the xs3 over the mx3 for its feel and the position of the 3rd channel switch. You can also use the 3rd channel as a panic brake great for racing.

I have both, and prefer the JR. It's a little more intuitive to use the menus. I like the trigger on the MX-3 a better though, it has a smaller spot for your finger so it feels a little more responsive going from throttle to brake.
I've been trying to duplicate it on my jr by sticking fuel tubing or servo tape on the trigger to make the gap smaller.

Someone with sausage fingers may find the opposite.

If you've got the money to spend, get the JR. If you wanna save some money, the MX-3 is a good radio too, but you won't get synth.
