Default Helios EX10 or DX3R?

I am in the market for a new radio and was considering the Helios (with Spektrum) and the DX3R.

Which is a better radio overall?

I do like how light the DX3R feels, but I believe the Helios has more features compared to the DX3R.

I've owned them both and I'm a DX guy now. I like how it feels as well. It's so light! The menus are so easy to scroll through. You don't even need to read the instructions. (I did though, ha ha.) One thing you need to make sure of is the Frame Rate is set at 5.5ms for digital servos. I have the Losi 8 and I'm able to put my transponder and the reciever inside the reciever box. The small reciever is dialed and it's also faster than the other spektrum models.

I've had some strange things happen with my Helios/Spektrum set up. Like if you were too close to you vehicle, it wouldn't communicate well. And sometimes, the car would just lose all communication all together. I'm really happy with the DX3R. No problems.
