Default What Radio would you prefer?

What radio would you prefer and think is better? The M8, 3pj, or the 3pk. I'm just asking because I want to know which is better, even though I'm going to get an M8

Why do you get the M8, if it's not the best?

Then again, how is "best" defined? The best, is the one that suits a persons needs !

One important thing about TX's are the grip test. If the TX aint fitting nicely into your hand, it aint the best for your needs !

I'm just wondering jeez, what the heck is your problem. I'm getting the M8 because it's the what i can afford on my BUDGET! My friends have the 3pj and the 3pk and i just wanted to see which of the three are good and what's everyone's opinion about them. CHILL OUT

the M8 is far easier to use, ive owned a lot of top end radios and found it about the best for my needs, although I liked the EX 1 about as much.
I found the M8 had more room for my hands, but my thumb was still a tight fit on the drop down.
Futabas I find too much of a pain in the butt to use, and just feel weird in the hand.
Plus look at the instruction manual for a 3PJs, and an M8 and you will soon realize that the M8 is a better choice unless you enjoy spending a lot of time reading about the button configs you have to press to get your radio to do what you want.

If I dont buy another M8 though, im buyin a KO Mars R if I can find a good price on one

Yes i was reffering to cole, but now it's over. I am getting an M8, but the whole point of this thread was to see everyone' opinion on the controller I posted, because my friend has a 3pk and the other is getting a 3pj. So the reason is that we want to see which one is better and if it was worth getting it, or it it was just waste of $$200+! I'm sorry for the misunderstanding! and KO, i didnt reffered to you. I reffered to cole because of what he posted.

Default What Radio would you prefer?

I've got a Hitec Lynx FM in our T-Maxx and this was my first Radio. Just not enough adjustments for me.
For our On-road cars we exclusivly use the Futaba 3PDFM's. I am contemplating buying a 3PK or the new JR synth Radio. Would depend on the Model memory and Crystal compatability. I want to be able to Drive all of my cars and trucks with ONE Transmitter.

Since you are buying the M8, The 3PK is MUCH better!!!

M8 ...KO's too small for most hands, and the 3pj and to a lesser extent the 3pk just feel weird.
