Nomadio react-the most versatile radio on the market-currently using a spektrum micro rec-the only radio on the market that is software based-need to add a feature simply plug in and download it off the nomadio desktop
Also using a 2 cell lipo, radio also came with a nice metal case. Stock rec are big but the telemetry is nice when breking in a motor u can always know the temp, rec pack voltage and if you need the rpm

DX3R now & most every high end radio before that.I float between dx3r,react,& 3pk.Just found out theres no channel mixing on the newest KO radio(my buddys) & that was my next radio so I conned him into a 4pk & I'll see how that goes,it may be my next radio if their new reciever(604) has fixed their problem.DX3R is a good radio but you never know till you buy.

I had been using a 10 year old Futaba AM radio until about 2 months ago!!!
I don't race (no track within 3 hours), it wasn't broke so I didn't bother to change it.

I finally upgraded to a Futaba 3PKS 2.4 system. It has taken a couple months to upgrade 4 vehicles to 603fs receivers and digital servos. It has been worth it and am glad I did.

I had been using a spektrum dx but just recently bought a used jr z1 with the spektrum pro module modded in. Wow, what a difference! I'll never use anything else.

M8

In my opinion how the radio feels in your hands is the most important. The only way to really do that though is test it out for yourself, see what you like.

Having a bunch of added features is only good if you are going use them.
