+1 i didnt like the dx3r because of it feels to light, the m11 is a great radio but so is the dx3r

Honestly, I have only ever used Futaba radios. Robotic engineers with robotic equipment worth hundreds of thousands of dollars seem to trust Futaba radios. I use a 3PK.

I watched my buddies brand new truggy cut across 3 lanes and hit the wall full tilt. He was using a 2.4 Futaba. but it was probably just a noob driving error

I ran the 3PM fasst last year and loved it, for curiosity sake and cause I like to try new stuff I sold it and got the MX3fhss and I am missing opening day because I cant get the radio to stay bound. I am going to use it for a while and am actually debating on the 3PKfasst or 4PK in a few months. Anyone bought a 4PK from that place that has that advertizement on the top of this page sometimes claiming $290 or something for them???? Sounds too good to be true.

DX3R is no joke! the DSM2 is a huge improvement over DSM. the transmit rate is REALLY fast, that means if you need to react to a situation it will do it faster than a FM or DSM radio and could be the difference between wining and being the first loser.
Show us the improvement of DSM2.
I've had my 4PK since they came out I've never had one problem. I put over 13 hours on my radio just this weekend. Here's my 4pk and JR DS8711(only .15/sec) video. No need to show the JRz9100s(.06/sec) with Fasst... you might miss it
Screen Shots of 4PK with backlight on.
