I wouldnt consider the KO ugly, but i would have to consider it different from what we are used to (but its awfully comfy ). The only radio(s) i ever thought were ugly were the Lynx 3d and the nomadio. But from the list, i would have to say the R-1 because it looks the most uncomfortable (and cramping)

Default r1

yeh the r1 is very cramped on your hand but has a massive LCD which i my favourite part of the r1.

I am a bit biased bcoz i owned one but the helios is so comfy it just looks a bit alien-y but still look good!
Best radio comfort!

Futaba has some ugly radios, especially the older models.

Btw, what is the purpose of this thread?

The KO helios should take 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in the ugly poll. I mean, when it comes to bad looks, that thing rivals some RTR radios.

Default purpose

the purpose of this thread is to find out what racers think of the look of radios and find the ugliest one is that a crime?!

I would say the R-1, and I think the ko and 3pk look really cool.

I would have to say the 3PK is the ugliest radio on the market with the M8-11 following a close second. The 3PK looks like a cop's radar gun. The helios and the Z-1 are definitely the best looking radios on the market. If you think the helios is ugly, clean your glasses or go get some glasses...

Airtronics M11- I can't stand the way it looks. Very uncomfortable to use as well, at least for me.


KO for me!!!!!!!!!
