Default M8 VS 3PK

WELL FUNNY YOU ASK THIS QUESTION I HAVE JUST SWITCHED FROM THE M8 TO THE 3PK. THEY ARE TWO VERY DIFFRENT REMOTES. THE 3PK CAN BE A LITTLE OVERWELMING AT FIRST. THERE ARE A LOT OF BELL AND WISTLES TO THE POINT WHERE IT CAN BE A LITTLE CONFUSING YOU DIFFENTLY ARE GOING THO HAVE TO USE YOUR INSTRUCTION MANUAL. THE M8 IN MY JUGEMENT IS DEFFENTLY EASYER TO USE OFF THE BAT. BUT UPON SAYING THE 3PK WITH OUT A DOUBT IS THE MOST COMFORTABLE REMOTE ON THE MARKET YOU HAVE OPTIONS TO MOVE THE REMOTE DOWN,FOWARD,BACK AND ALL IN LITTLE INCRMENTS TO YOUR LIKEING AND THE 3PK IS BALANCED VERY WELL AND LIGHT. NOT TO SWAY YOU AN ANY WAY I AM VERY HAPPY WITH MY NEW FUTABA 3PK AND DONT THINK I WILL BE USING A NOTHER AIRTRONICS REMOTE AGAIN FOR A VERY LONG TIME

Default 3PK versus M8 versus M11

Actually I am considering the M11, since I'm currently using the M8 and Im not particular towards the 3PK myself.

As a longtime M8 user, I feel the learning curve on the 3PK is way too steep and I'd prefer the soft transition to the M11.

Does anybody have a comparison between the M11 and the M8 or 3PK?

Lmao!!!


Colour change led.. damn. If you look at it too long i doubt your car will still be in one piece.

I've found the M8 to be very intuitive..It's more radio than i'll ever need. Love it...

And surprisingly .. better balanced thatn i thought it would be.

Hey Jamie, you sure you want a new radio. Wouldn't want it to get stuck to the pit bench again.

I've been using an M8 for years now and it's great. No need to buy a new radio unless technology really changes.
