Megatech or Magnum version?

only reason I purchased in the states is warrantee.. otherwise I would have purchased it overseas as well..
not sure about canadian warantee service if get serviced in Canada or in the US.

In the US.
Futaba USA will only honor the warrantee if it's the Magnum label. They will service the Megatech label..but get hit with labor and parts that could end up costing alot more if purchased in the US. and this is from experience..

I got my 3PK yesterday, and it ROCKS! One of my dad's collegues ordered it for me from overseas (I'm in Europe), and he got it for half the price of what it would have cost if I had got it here (my thanks goes out to him).

I have the Black version (non-synthesised, decided to wait for Futaba's 2.4GHz system). Fit is perfect, everything is easibly accesible.

I had someone ask me about these two radio's at the track today,MY response was go with the 3PK,if for no other reason than the dual rate override,it can make the difference between first or last in a race.If you get stuck you don't have to wait on a corner marshall to get you out just hit the override with your thumb and spin yourself around and keep going.It's the main advantage you will have over the M-8 or M-11.I'm glad to hear about the spectrum version I will wait for it to come out,I'm still running a four year old 3pjs,but it has all the features I need,except the specktrum.

No! it's not reverse,it's a full steering feature that will overide your steering settings with the push of a button which is located right above your thumb,it's the one feature that Airtronics doesn't have.As for the speed of either radio,the Futaba is plenty fast enough for any level driver,and has every feature the Airtronics has and then some.

I've had an M11 for 6 months now and love it. My only reservation is that I still need to look at the manual now and again for changes in set up - I'd love it more if it was easier to use.

Also the weight (it is heavier than others) did feel unusual at first but this is a non-issue as you get used to it within a day. It's very accurate and feels perfect in MY hands. This was the deciding factor for me. Pick up the 3PK, Helios and M11 and buy the one that feels the best - they're all great radios.
