I am getting the "Exzes Plus" coming out in March from Airtronics.
Its basically an M11 in stick format.
It also accepts the Spektrum Module.

I still have a KO Vantage-R that I like. I am familiar with the programming sequence as I also have a Mars and a Helios. To be honest, picking the better radio between Airtronics, Futaba, and KO will be more like apples and oranges. It all comes down to the racer's comfort zone. Good luck.

its up to your own preference and taste, as all the stick radios from KO, Sanwa and Futaba are up to the job. but i personally prefer Sanwa, as i find its more user friendly, no need ot go through multi levels of menus to acess what you need to adjust....my two cents.

Anybody seen or try that new KO Universe?
It looks great on the website, just wondering if anybody has held one yet.
It seems a lot more streamlined and smaller in mass than most two-sticks.
Even the Sanwa Exzes Plus looks beefier in comparison.
My only complaint would be that tiny LCD. But....it can be plugged in to a PC.
KO has me thinking twice now, especially since it will be Spektrum compatible.

Do people actually run 1/10th touring with stick transmitters? Nothing against it just never saw anyone use one.
