I have a friend who had a spektrum module in his 3PKs and then converted to the fasst system. He says that the fasst system is much faster.

I agree the Fasst System is a lot better then the Spektrum. I have had both and had a lot of problems with the Spektrum. Switched to the Fasst System and all of the problems went away.

Fasst System is the only way to go.

Later,

I have never experienced glitching with my 3PK/FASST than I did with 3PK/Spektrum

Your not going to find one under 80 bucks unless you buy it used. The reciever for the 3PM is $90, and the one for the 3PKS is $100. Make sure you buy the right one because they look the same except for the number on them, I called Futaba and according to them the receivers are not interchangeable between the models so you have to buy the right one.

3PM = R603FF
3PKS = R603FS

If you like Spektrum and FASST, then look at xtremepowersystems.net
This system based on government 2.4Ghz technology and it blows both of those systems out of the water. They are making systems for nearly every radio. Check it out.

DON'T listen to that rep. Get the R603FS it works with either the 3PK or the 3PM. Trust me I've had both transmitters. I've taken both receivers apart and the R603FS has and internal and external antenna for added range. I'd rather pay the extra $10 for the R603FS. BTW both receivers WILL WORK with both the 3PK and the 3PM.
