First of all is PCM.Really important for GP racing.
And also futaba has some features that are important for 1/8 buggy etc and ko doesn't.
And on the other hand KO has some features very helpfull for EP racing...

Not one top driver uses PCM on their Futaba. It has a slower response time than PPM (FM) no matter what the magazine ads say. In blind tests the really fast guys can feel lag with PCM compared to FM.

That said all the radios out right now are just awsome. You pretty much can't go wrong with anything from Airtronics, KO or Futaba.

I've been very happy with my 3PK. I think that the user interface looks a lot easier to use then the Helios. The big screen makes things very easy to understand as well so I like it.

Also he is going to use the futaba charger according to that article. Oscar won't be happy with that!

Depends if KO registrated the name Hara to use with their products. Maybe it will be: ATSUSHI's choice
