Default JR XS3 PRO

Is this radio, even though it is discontinued, a good buy? I own and operate a race track and race myself. I see the benefits of a 2.4 ghz system, but I don't need all that for my area. A 30 channel synth is enough for my area. Plus the 50 lap timer is a major plus in my opinion. Any opinions are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

It's a great radio. Used one for three years with no issues. They can be had very cheap new now.

I still run an XS3 for my synthesized FM stuff in about 5 of my cars. I am a BIG fan of JR gear and the XS3 in particular. The radio is user friendly, its easy to navigate, its tough and I have never seen an XS3/Receiver combo glitch once.

I did go Spektrum on my racers, but I didn't have to.
