Default help me pick a radio!

ok well i have got it down to 2 radios the kopropo helios/jr z-1 75 mhz or the futaba 3pk 75mhz radio. the problem is that i felt ryan lutz's ko propo and it felt crazy goodi like the 3pk but when i look at all the servos brands that are owned by futaba it says watch out of the polarity connectors on the futaba receivers and i don't know what that means can any one clarify what that means? and i am attending the crcrc midwest race and i am afraid if i don't get the 2.4 ghz technology that if i do well i might get radio hacked so at this point i don't know what to do? i really what a radio that feels awesome so tell me how comfortable these radios are for you. thanks for all you help
thanks, sarehon taylor

3pk, but if you got the cash, get the 4pk. Smoothest radio I have ever felt. If you want the 3pk to be a little lighter just get a lipo for it. As far as the servo polarity goes its just talking about the three wires that come out of the servo, they need to go into the receiver a certain way, this is true for all receivers not just futaba. Its a simple fix to place the wires in the correct order. The receivers have instructions on how to do this as well as most servos.
