Thumbs up

run down.

3pk has most features. but you need specific servos depending on the receiver you have (digital or analogue).

m8 has less features, but still a top of line radio (was for the last 8 years anyway, now superseeded by the M11) .. can use any servo. i tried my friends m11, has lots more feature, but then took longer to change settings coz it just had so many functions. just couldnt change functions as quickly as my m8 on the fly.

3pj is 3pk's little brother.

i have m8 and find no need to upgrade to anything else. its easy to use and no complications with HRS mode and alike.

Well the choice is really... the 3PK,M11, or the KO Helios.
I have the 3PK and its great but so are the others.
The helios i really like also.
So it comes down to what u like the look of.

They are all good radios and have their fans. Apart from the features, I think how the radio feels in your hand and how comfortable you are with are equally important. Try and see if you can get somebody to let you have a play.
