KO Propo EX-10 Helios vs Airtronics M11

Hello guys!!! I did a search on this and nothing came up so I am just looking for your opinion on these 2 radios. Just like a poll; Which one you prefer and why???

The reason I'm asking is because I own a M11 but I've seen a lot of drivers switch to the KO Propo.
thanks
Norman

I only have the Helios, so I can only comment on that.

I love it! Its nice and light, and has a bunch of options for it.

Tried and M8 and Have tried an Ex10 both with Spectrums. I own a ex10. It realy comes down to feel. They all have the same functions.

I have both the M8 and EX10.
Functionality and user friendlyness are the same.
My only remark is: bigger screen, more battery usage.

Love them both.
EX10 has the high response mode, so does M11.

Cheers

It all in how you like it..

I like the drop down wheel for the long 45 mains in Nitro Truggy....
Plus with the Lipo battery in the Helios it still feels balanced....
I had a M8 before the Helios and the M11 felt simular...top heavy and like to lean to right on me when I run Nitro long mains...
So for me it was comfortable and well the tiny receiver is so nice in TC's..

Preference is key here...
Since you have a M11 just go to the track and ask to hold someone's Helios for 5 minutes to see if it fits to your liking better than the M11 you already own.
If it does sell the M11 and buy a helios, if not you are none the worser off for it.

Hope that helps ya,

Back in the day, 27mhz channels were thought to be more "glitch free" than 75 mhz because the channel frequencies are farther apart (being that there are only 6 frequencies). I don't know if this was true or not but I've always used 27mhz frequencies.

DSS is the way to go though. I think they've worked out most of the bugs. Futaba is releasing there version as we speak. I'm sure KO and Airtronics will follow shortly.
