Default airtronics m11

not sure if there is a thread about this radio, but i was looking for opinions on this radio. i currently have a futaba 3pk that i'm looking to sell, i plan on buying an m11 soon after i sell the futaba.

i heard that some m11's have a problem with centering, just asking if anybody is familiar with this problem, or if it is a hoax. anybody that can share their thought, please let me know

I had an M11 and had a problem with it not centering because the wheel bearing is open and I run offroad. I just sent it in to Airtronics to be cleaned, no big issue whatsoever. I didn't even have proof of purchase. Airtronics support is amazing also. Its an awesome radio, but it was uncomfortable to me. I tried my friends 3pks out, and found that to be more "transparent" to me while driving. But as far as the radio, its damn good. I just saw a pic of the M11R which is a faster version of the M11, otherwise same look and feel. I think the menu on the M11 is nicer, and easier to navigate, however I do not use any functions other than EPA and dual rate, trim and brake epa (ATL on the 3pks).

The 2 that i have used both didnt center properly and the owners never even realized it. If i remember it had something to do with some screws on the inside being overtightened causing binding and was a very easy fix. Airtronics customer service is A++++

I have no problems with my M11. I run it on and off road. Centering no problem. I run mine with Specktrum pro. Works like a champ!

I have the M11 with spektrum pro, and took the antenna out and cut optimus primes head off of one of the action figures I had as a kid and glued it on, looks sweet and works great, I will never use another radio again!
