Looks like they had another radio in mind when they made this one.

i agree the 3pk radio is nice, when i made the move to spektrum it came down to getting a 3pk or an airtronics m11, i just happened to find a cheap airtronics m8 with spektrum

People use to say the same thing about the 3pk.Doesn't look like anything available{at the time} and it ended up being one of the best selling radios,and now is being used by alot of the same people who thought it looked funny before.

I can see some similarities to the newer radios. Also keep in mind, often times the "Prototypes" don't always end up looking like the final product.

Im a Futaba guy and I still run the 3PJS, and love it. Its Comfortable, well balanced and fairly easy to use. Considered getting the 3PK, but didn't want to spend the $$.

Now that I am looking to get back into racing, I was looking at the Nomadio, and the 3XDR. That 3XDR really does look sexy. We'll see if the pocketbook can support it. Might just stick to my 3pjs for a while.

looks a bit like one of the spread rectums. looks nicely balanced but it'd be nice if u can drop the wheel just like on the 3pk.
