Default Spectrum or Spectrum Pro

Hey all,

I am interested in getting a spectrum unit for my M11.I had huge glitching issues at a race recently and was not able to run at all.I am curious what the difference is between the Spectrum unit and the Spectrum Pro unit.I run 1/8 buggy and was curious if the extra cash for the Pro unit is worth it.

The price difference between the original and Pro module isn't too much. The main difference is the fuel-proof casing and slightly faster response that you can't feel. I'm not sure if the original one will be discontinued anytime soon, but it couldn't hurt to get the newer version.

Thanks guys,
I think the difference in price is about 30$ and I am just not sure if it is worth it!

Just FYI, I believe that Horizon advertises 100% compatibility between the two. If I were buying a new one, I'd buy the Pro.

I have the standard system for my M11, but my B4 is running the 'Pro' micro receiver without any issues. You just get only 1/2 of the unnoticeable improvement in response speed

I do remember reading something about the antenna being sturdier in the Pro system for the M11 as well - but if you 'mod' it into the factory hole on the Tx this doesn't matter.

Spektrum made some improvements in the Pro series to eliminate any static electricity problems from running indoors on carpet.

The Micro receiver is backwards compatable as is the Pro receiver.

Might as well spend the extra up front rather than three to four times more for a new receiver if you race on carpet.
