I love the look of the M11. I just bought a Helios because of the way it feels with the angled drop down wheel. Lucky for me, I don't have to look at the radio while I'm driving. It looks too sci-fi for me, but it does feel good.

I can't believe that the Spektrum DX3 is even on this list. I thought we were talking about HIGH end radios. Spektrum is awesome but the DX3 (JR XR3 with a new paint job and stickers) doesn't compare to any of the other radios on the list. (Even Futaba's radar gun)

Ugly is in the eye of the beholder!!!!!!!!!! Everyone opinions of ugly are different. THe Nomadio radio is not the best look but features outweigh looks in the radio area.

All the top radios look kinda funny/ugly in their own ways.

I gotta say the Helios is the ugliest from that list IMO. Looks like a toy radio that you would get at Toys-R-us with one of the Tyco cars.

I have the M11 and I love the way is feels and looks - well balanced in my opinion.

Noone mentioned the Hitec CRX, While its not the worst on the eye it certainly looks like Mr. Scotts phaser from star trek, plus it resembles a cheep radio that comes with most RTR's. The Futaba 3pk is definetely radar gun ugly. The XL screen on the back is a crazy placement, just looks top heavy. Why didnt they make the front look like an Axe so you can swing the sucker around when you get PO'ed.

They didn't beat that radio with an ugly stick, they used the whole damn tree...
