Nomadio React, just wish the radio itself was higher quality, feels a little cheap. It's packed full of features, most of which I will never use, but it has transmitter voltage, receiver pack voltage, you can program buttons to reset a timer for when to pit, the list goes on and on.

Other radios run at my track include the M11, a bunch of Spektrums, no AM radios (think I was the last guy ever to run one ), and I think a Futaba 3PKS FASST.

+1. Ran the DX3.0 and DX3R and had issues losing bind and glitching. Sent in to Spectrum and got the stuff replaced but didn't trust it anymore. Bought a 3pks and now just upgraded to the 4PK and love it.

The Airtronics M11X.
Its the pinnacle of Transmitters/radio systems.
All you have to do is look at what Pro Drivers run

Any of the Futaba 2.4ghz FAAST systems.
i got the 3pm, and its fantastic, and very well priced against the specktrum(which ive heard have some binding, and glitching problems).
but if your a pretty serious racer, get the 3pk or 4pk.

Spektrum anything but DX3R in particular. Like Jaz said. They invented it for RC use, and are the most experienced with it. Plus you get Horizon Hobby backing/support.

Spektrum DX3R, great product, light in the hand, flawless performance (Except for the minor problem with unbinding in a few, but thats been ended now)

My mate also has the 4PK and that is also a spectacular radio

Id like to add that while I love the spectrum 2.4 GHZ I hate their radios. I use mine in the Airtronics M8..Its the original Spectrum module and RX that they first made, before they even made radios! They designed it specifically to fit the M8 and it works as good now as the day it was first invented

I've been wondering what system to go with also. I'm looking at the Futaba 3pm, airtronics mx3, and the spektrum dx3. I'm kinda leaning toward the futaba. Does anyone have anything to say about the mx3?
