Default M11X or 4PK, Help me decide, ordering today

I had a 4PK, I liked it but had issues with buttons getting hard to press along with a couple other things. So, I am either trying the M11X or ordering a new 4PK

Ordering today from Amain, please post a vote for which one you like better. I will order based on the results of the vote.

THX

I prefer the 3pk over the 4pk and m11. I like the way it feels in my hand and never had a problem with the 3pk. I have always had a futaba radio and never had issues.

I went from the 4pk to the M11x. I like the M11X better for several reasons. 1. I can run a lipo in it. Lightweight and lasts for weeks before recharging. 2. no overheating issues with the receivers. Had a few during mains. 3. Smaller receivers. Fits in more places. I've been very happy with my M11x and am glad I switched.

Neither, Ko Propo Eurus I've used the 4pk and the ko propo is the most comfortable radio I've ever ran and the receiver will handle straight lipo.

m11x is the way to go. Though i would advise going to ur lhs and holding them both and playing with them so u see what ur most comfortable with. The futaba overheats. Lcd's go bad alot. And to top it off the customer service sucks and wont even help u when this does happen. When i called about my overheating receivers they acted like they have never heard of the problem. But yet hundreds of people were calling about the same thing. Worst customer service in the industry.

I'm thrilled to hear more folks are running unregulated lipo with the M11x reciever and not poofing. Loven my m11x.

It's only rated for 6v.


I'm no fan of fuutaba.
