Default Futaba 3PK vs spektrum

for you guys that own a Futaba 3PK,
Can you pls tell me if their 2.4Ghz system is compatable with "Spektrum" recievers.

Also, if your using the futaba 2.4 GHz method, have you encounted any problems?

Im thinking of changing over, but i have 3 Spektrum reciever, and dont know which is the best method.

Simon

No, it isnt compatible w/ spectrum. I own a 3PKS with FASST system, so far everything is smooth. The only flaw is the steering wheel foam that needs to be glued so it won't move forward causing a drag.

2 Questions:

1) I have a Futaba 3PM 2.4ghz Spektrum radio and it comes with a Futaba 603FF receiver...what's the difference between the Futaba FAST 603FF receiver that comes with the Spektrum 3PM, vs the 603FS receiver? They look the same and would like to know if one is faster than the other? Will my 603FF perform just as fast as the FS version?

2) Is the Futaba 3PM F.A.S.T. radio with R603FF receiver, just as Fast and reliable as a 3PK Super with FAST module and R603FS receiver? I want to race with the 3PM FAST radio and 603FF Fast receiver and hope to have equipment that's just as fast as the drivers running their 3PKS w/ FAST module and 603FS receivers...will my equipment be on par with them? Or will the 3PKS be slightly faster due to the 3PKS having a faster processor than the 3PM 2.4ghz processor, if that has anything to do with it?

Spektrum only controls spektrum...

Futaba only controls futaba...

Nomadio can control them all... Pisses spektrum off too...

That honestly is the only good thing about the React.

I still use my Sensor more than I use the React... I let others use my react... Although i was working on one of my cars without a receiver in it the other night and I had a Spektrum sitting there so I grabbed the React, set it to DSM mode and binded them together.... Beautiful thing...
