fatdoggy: why not the JR?
Any pros and cons?
I've have a XR2 which is the same as the XR3 except the XR3 is fm and has a 3 model memory, it's a nice radio but the pdf is better, it has expo adn in your case is actually cheaper. The servos that you get with (new) radio's are not normally very good, there about 44 ounces in and .22sec's/60degrees(futaba 3003 specs) which is ok for play but if your racing you'd usually want something a little faster(note-hitec has some cheap servos that are decient) you can find the hitec servo specs at http://www.stormerhobbies.com/cgi-bi...=ht&man=hi-tec
Near the bottom of the page. Hitec servos are about half the price of some other companies and are decient reliable units(or so I've heard) If you do buy a radio without servos I would suggest you buy a servo with dual ball bearings, and metal gears(for reliability) and some decient specs, it will last you a long time. O and if you like the pdf go for it cause you can easily live without the added fetures of the lynx (unless your a psyhco die hard racer) and for $112 you can't loose, plus if people around you have had problems then maybe it's not a good idea. Go for the radio that YOU like better and that has the bast customer support. Good luck.
