Better performance???!!!!! thats extremely questionable, I think 999 is closer to the truth!

thats what i was thinking...cuz...i asked the guy there...and said that the black one just doesnt reflect light...which i think is a reasonable answer! races take place during day time..and it could be sunny!

i have no idea how black is better in performance than the silver one...i mean..if the black one is made of a better conductor or something like that...then it shouldnt be black, it should be a copper color or something cuz copper is a good conductor! and it wouldnt make sence if they colored the antenna black cuz that just interferes with the signal! (this is just my theory)

and one thing i dont understand is that...why in the world are the black ones more expensive then the silver one when the performance is the same?

999- Marketing! Actually most of the 'black' ones are fatter and have one or two more segments!

Go down to Sham Shui Po and get them there..... I hear it is much cheaper.... you have to pay for the 'KO' label you know!!

No, no, no... I know you are using 3PJ.... even with Futaba it is cheaper in Sham Shui Po! Also 3PJ also has extra segments to the aerial compared to the 'silver' version!

Are YOU going to use the TX or are the GUYS going to use the TX! Buy whichever is most comfortable to YOU! All 3 are very comparable in functions!

was ist los?, I might go for M8!

I just tried my teammate M8, then I realized it is not a matter of spring tension! I think M8 has smoother steering!

Maybe the black ones are more expensive because they are harder to bend than the silver ones.... . I think its a great investment for all you racers that have anger managment problems....like me, LOL.

In case you reffering to the one numbered 1668 that were on Wing Jet, it's with me now.

I've been using KO and have tried Sanwa/Airtronics. Still prefer KO but the M8 does have its own advantages.

I know you don't need all the features EX1 offers but this radio, I believe, much more advance than M8.

Well, since the Mars LE is trully limited, I think I'll stick with it. At least, I could have it for colletions purpose.
