ya know...instead of updating the interface and making the radio internals better....why don't they start making more physically adjustable radios? I could care less how it looks....if I'm going to be holding the dam thing for 20-30-40 minutes....I want it to be comfortalbe and adjustable to my specifications.....

Helios all the way. Drop down wheel with steering wheel adjustable angle. most comfortable radio I've ever held.

The Multiplex isn't that ugly - it's just the...the...the COLOR!
Damn! Such a waste...it has a REALLY good feature-set.

Someone mentioned it looked like a laser pistol. Yup! Looks like a phaser
from the original Star Trek series!!!

Now, the JR R-756 - now THAT is FUGLY. All else pales in comparison!

#1 - JR R-756 -> Undisputed KING of Ugly Radios
#2 - Take your pick -> Futaba 2PD/3PB/3PG
#3 - R-1/Z-1/EX-1/EX-10
#4 - TIE - HiTec Lynx 3D / Futaba Radar Gun (aka 3PK) / Airtronics M8/M11

Default UGLY

Helios and Nomadio are neck and neck for the title. 3PK and M8 don't even make the list!! No one is disputing the functions or ergonomics of either of these....but estetics.....they head the list.

Hands down for the Nomadio I used to think the Helios took the cake but it has 'grown' on me. My 12th scale part-na AnthonyL.'s Helios feels better in my mitts than my new 3PKS. With the drop down wheel plus the angle.... that's tight

heh - Nomadio is the undisputed champ-of-ugly.
It's excluded from the poll, though, because it'd be a no-contest!

The undisputed champ of ugly has GOT to be the JR R-756

Attached is a pic of an R-756 from a couple years ago here on RCT.


FUGLY!!!

EDIT: Here's the JR R-756 and Multiplex side-by-side. Ain't * N O * way
the Multiplex is as ugly as the JR R-756!!!
Added Futaba 2PD, 3PB, Airtronics CX2P

I am curious if any of you guys voting for the Nomadio actually OWN AND USE the Nomadio? If you did, you would not be saying that.............
But that's OK, don't buy it cuz you think it is ugly, just another advantage for the people that use it.

Mpetrich:

I HAVE a Nomadio Sensor, V2, and I have one of he 25 or so limited editions "glossy" units.

I can paint it, skin it, peel it, cover it, hide it, stash it.....and guess what?

It's *STILL* B U T T U G L Y

Now, it's FEATURES are awesome, and it's a righteous controller.
But man, it's own MOTHER wouldn't breast-feed it!

The JR R-756 is *STILL* the unbeaten champ - I think it encroaches even on Nomadio territory!

Yo......WTF is WRONG with KO ?!?!?!?

...And who was calling the EX-10 pretty?
Are you INSANE?!?!?!? That thing is NASTY!

Ain't NO way I'd show up with that. Even if it IS comfy.
That'd be like showing up to the prom with the fat chick.


EDIT: Airtronics XL2P image added. Ewwwwww....
