The 3Pk is the FM 75 band. The 3PKS is the Fasst system. Something like that.

the button layout is changed on the 3pkS..
if you download the manual from Futaba....you'll see quickly see some of the differences.

the top also has a different removable module cover to better fit the 2.4 systems.

3PK is the original, came with FM receiver


3PK Super models:
-Radio only no receiver or module install your choise of (FM, PCM, HRS, 2.4GHz)
-Complete radio with R303FHS synthesized
-Complete radio with R113iP FM
-Complete radio with R203HF HRS hi responce FM
All above can do (FM, PCM, HRS, 2.4GHz) and currently you cannot buy any with the FASST 2.4ghz system installed. Its only available separate or with a 3pm system.

I had the original 3PK and has on 27mhz.
I currently have the 3PKS and that too was on 27mhz until I got the 2.4ghz system for it.

they both available in 27 and 75mhz with xtals or synthesized system.

NO!

Why waste the money to get the same radio? Radios are not motors or batteries. There is no such thing as RADIO of the month, where guys are loosing races cuz they only had XYZ brand radio.

Use your extra money to get receivers
