First thing is it comfortable? Does the feel of the wheel or sticks or trigger suit your driving style?
All the high end radio grear have the same features but they call them diffent things.
I would serioulsy try and make sure the radio gear the feels right first rather than spend lot of time setting it up.
Some people prefer the "sticks" to be very light and have no progression, most of the KO's are like that except the helios.
Some have a progessive smooth feel which give you an idea where you are in turning the wheel or pulling the trigger or moving the stick.
One to aviod are the airtronics sanwa gemini sticks as they wear out stick to long...etc

I realize that this thread is old, but on page 22 of the DX3 manual (which I'm assuming you are referring to) there's directions for setting expo.

Best I can tell, the DX3 has all 4 of the most needed features.

I know the DX3.0 has exponential (I own one), but I don't believe that the DX3 had exponential. I may be wrong about the DX3, but I know I couldn't find it on a friends radio.

The Spektrum DX3.0 DSM should have all the features you should need on your first radio, and you won't go broke

Throttle,Brakes,Right and Left steering, and the ability to interact with the reciever.

just kidding. mostly personal preference, i would go to hobby shop and hold a few different ones, and then what fits your budget. anything you get that is not an rtr will have the settings your will need that others have described here.

Well, that's just bad naming. I mean really. 3 vs 3.0?! I've been sort casually looking at getting this radio, but then I was cautious because I never noticed the .0 thing. Ug.
