Default Used 3PK

Buy a used 3PKS and 2.4 module. The radio is so nice and full of options.Plus lite display.

I got a MX-3X about a month and a half ago, and am loving it. Has all the features that i need as a club racer, and the same transit speed as the M11X. All for under $200.

Yet another vote for the MX-3X. Shop smart, find one for ~$150. Add a 2500mah 2S LiPo pack for it, and it will run over a month on a single charge. Of the 12+ radios I own, the MX-3X gets used the most.

The best radio under $200 is hands down the KOPropo EX-5UR. Can't believe it hasn't been mentioned.

To my knowledge, FHSS-3 is the fastest response on the market. That said, I don't think anyone would really notice the difference. Try them both in your hand. Feel of the trigger, the wheel tension, the way the radio feels in one's hand, etc.. is much more important than the "deal" or the response numbers.
