I can't compare the two as I don't own the Futaba 3PK, but I do own a Ko Propo Helios and I can highly recommend it. It has more features than you'll ever need, it's really high quality, the reciever's super-small and it's got a really quick response time. In my opinion it is also a better looking design than the 3PK.

I have use 3pk and now i use 3pks, and my racing budy use kopropo helios. I'm lefthander and koporopo isn't lefthand swichable, and that is the first thing that i like on 3pk/s, second is wheel adapter sou you can lower weel if you like that, i shure do! From options there a lot on futaba and kopropo - to many if you ask me, but hey it's high end radio and all you need or may need some day is there. Futaba have bigger screen but kopropo have grat weel to surf menu. I'm for futaba but you can't go wrong here, i'ts like bmw, mercedes, porche dilema, and don't forget to check m11 from sanwa(airtronics).
Hope it helps you a bit.
Have fun racing

i ran both.

the 3pks is more user friendly to use.

helios i dont like the scroll screen, you have to remember where the options are, whereas the 3pks you can see everything on the one screen.

True, and you can make your own "quick" menu with 7 easy to get optons. Great to use in a rush!

3pk menus 100 times easier to use than helios...much bigger screen makes things very easy...
I recommend 3pk...ko menus too complicated where 3pk has all same features but idiot proof...

Best thing would be to go down to your LHS and try them both out, then get whichever one feels best.

They are both very good radios, it just comes down to personal preferance
